Serious sliding down. Unless you are very comfortable with that, good grip shoes and poles are a must. Views are beautiful.
Went in June and there were mosquitos. Wild flowers are very pretty

This trail was amazing! It goes from moderate to intense. The summit at the top made the effort worth it. You can see for miles in every direction. Bring plenty of water and snacks. We hiked 1:45 up and 1 down. It was an intense work out. We brought our coonhound and he loved it and was able to climb the rocks. There was a small stream and falls to enjoy. The terrain is everything from flat gravel path to super slopes and rocks. I would highly recommend this trail.

This is a good hike for those who don't want to see people - a local find. There is a trail to follow until the water tower, but after that the hike gets real fun. It can be a steep climb at times. the incline is intense, but well worth it. The hike consists of hiking though we'll wooded forest with many trees to climb , and then some minor rock climbing. the view is well worth it.

Definitely a hard trail. There isn't a sign for the trail head. I did it and lost the trail about half way up and couldn't find it again. Ended up climbing lots of boulders to get to the top. Definitely not a six mile hike. It came out to a little more than 8 miles. It was fun but definitely hard

Good hike, I wouldn't rate it as difficult, it'll leave you winded, but the trail is clearly defined and constant foot traffic leads to good conversation.

Very hard trail, it's basically the incline without stairs. A big challenge with a great reward, as the peak hold beautiful views and huge rock structures. Definitely recommend this for serious hikers.

Great trial, way better than the incline. The signage isn't very good specifically for Blodgett. The surrounding trails are marked well
