This is a great short hike. The scramble at the top of Lion's Head is a lot of fun, or you can take the trail past it and loop back up to avoid it. The views are well worth the trek!

While I had not expected how truly long and difficult this trail is, I still felt as though it was highly satisfying to reach the peak. The scenery during the hike up was also beautiful. Definitely a more difficult trek but comes with rewarding sights and is worth the time and effort the hike takes.

Did this trail on the way of a weekend hike of the CT section of the AT- 52 miles. This wasn't fun but the views are fantastic.

Nice trail to for aggressive running. Plenty of travelers en route as it links with the Appalachian. Dense forest canopy in my summer hike. Steady upward incline until the end. 180 degree view to the East of the ridge.

Awesome hike, a little bit steep going up, especially the last .1 mile, but great views from the top!
