A pleasant trail with interpretive signs along it. A few mucky spots. Blackflies out and fiercest atop the lookout and basically whenever you stop moving. The trail is a mostly a subtle steady climb with a few non so subtle points. The bonus is that it's all downhill on the return trip. There is a laddered waterfall near the trailhead that is an attraction in itself. Well-maintained trail and area.

It was great! Easy to navigate and although you go up, wasn’t too steep or tiring. One flag for going in winter, the section at the very top is not packed snow so snowshoes would help - I was almost up to my waist in snow! But the views at the top were worth it.

Great hike, well marked, informative signage, beautiful views and on the easier side of moderate. I did this hike in the fall, and the colours were breathtaking. Highly recommend.

Very easy for the most part, just the last 100m are a bit steeper but still no difficult terrain. The trail is beautiful and well marked. The surface is mostly packed soil and often overgrown. Beware of poison ivy on the sides of the trail. Information panels inform the history and flora along the trail. They cover an old wolf den, beaver ponds, water falls, turtles, and various plants and trees along the way. We encountered a lot of wildlife for such a short walk, frogs, various birds, a fox/coyote (still debated), and chipmunks. Also a few too many caterpillars and mosquitos for my taste. The lookout provides a surprisingly good view of the surrounding hills, far better than the small elevation gain would suggest. Overall a nice short walk, but beware of abundant mosquitos in the summer and poison ivy along the trail.

Great panoramic view with a beautiful cascading mountain stream to see on your way up to the top. Well-placed signage pointing out local rocks, vegetation and animal habitats.

Nice hike out today in the fresh snow. Easy trail for the most part, very well marked. It was our first time and we worried heading out that with the snow, way finding might be a challenge, but it is a very wide track most of the way up with signage all the way. Lots of interpretive signage as well if that's your cup of tea. It looks like the main trail continues after the cutoff for the summit, we followed it for a bit, but there wasn't any way finding in that section and with the snow it was hard to tell if were still on track. That section might be clearer in the summer. The water fall on the right side going up is worth a side trip and a few minutes. The summit is quite nice with the highest views in the county to be had. Dog friendly. Nice outing, recommended.

Beautiful trail. Easy hiking until you reach the base of Blueberry Mountain. While steep, it’s quite short to reach the summit. It’s definitely worth getting to the top.

Absolutely beautiful. To get up the last bit of the mountain was quite difficult as there was no clear trail laid out. Otherwise, worth every bit of it
