Arrived at trailhead around 9am and parking lot was almost completely full. Trail was dry and hike would have been nicer if I had planned for 30’s and snow.

If you want to dodge bikes continuously for 4 hours, this trail is for you! Without bikes 4 stars.

Very scenic. Not strenuous at all but if taking the entire trail the distance can be wearisome. Overall, great hike.

Beautiful hike on a quiet Thursday morning. Lots of birds. Only saw one other person the entire time. Trail was dry in sunny parts, and had some snow/ice/frozen mud in shady parts. Made it just fine with hiking boots. Will definitely be coming back!

Trail starts off dry but has lots of snowy patches and is muddy. I would recommend wearing hiking boots with good traction or using micro spikes for certain parts for next couple weeks.

Great trail! Paved road all way to the trailhead and easy to access. Beautiful walk through the woods and also has some nice views of the mountains. Only saw a few others on a Sunday morning. Very peaceful and not very strenuous. Even had some spots with cell service!

HikingIcyMuddy

Pretty hike with lots of evergreen trees. About 30% of the trail was very muddy and icy and the rest was fine. We brought a change of shoes to switch into after. Moderately busy on a Sunday but not bad at all. Most people on the trail were masked. Parking lot right at trailhead and another lot a short walk down at Betasso trail.

Nice, not TOO crowded, a little too much forest, not enough views for me. Some better options in the area.

Sat. 1-23-21. Nice walk in the woods with some decent views spread out along the way. Only took an hour 5 minutes. Definitely easy not moderate. Only issue is some ice right now. I did fine without spikes or poles but a guy slipped and hit his head on the ice right behind me pretty badly. Be careful!

Lovely, close little jaunt. Not very difficult...I’d even call it easy...but really pretty! And decent exercise for a quick hike. Did it on a Wednesday with no bikes to be dodged.

Light snow covering and a little slick on places. Would have liked to have my spikes but it was manageable without.

A nice hilly stroll through the foothills. Nice views of the backside of the flat irons and green mountain.
