Short but nice trail with a great view at the overlook. Just enough of a workout too. I highly recommend. One could easily do a hike here in the morning and go to Ocean Beach in the afternoon. Today was cold with just a little bit of ice. I want to come back in the spring or summer. I bet the view from the overlook would be really nice in the fall. This may not have the glory of the White Mountains or Acadia but this is a nice simple natural area that is well worth visiting.

The deforestation does take away from the scenery, but the trail is well marked and it’s still a nice hike.

Started by doing the Rhododendron Sanctuary, an easy quarter mile spur on flat ground and boardwalk. Will come back in early July and try to catch the Rhododendron in bloom. Trail up to Mt. Misery overlook is unspectacular, and the views are nothing to write home about. The second half of the loop -- I went clockwise -- is ugly, two roads that cut through scrubby and decimated forest. Probably would have been better to make the trip an out and back.

Not a bad hike. Didn’t enjoy the smell all that much. But top view was nice. The road trail is longer that the actual trail in the woods. So not much of a fun of that.

This hike gets your heart beating pretty good and ends with an easy walk back on the State Forest road. The deforestation is unfortunate as it ruins the views here and there, but the view from the top of Mt. Misery is nice.

Nice short loop with a very nice view at the top of mt misery. We recommend doing the loop counterclockwise as go up more at the end as opposed to much of the way.

we gave this hike 3 stars because half of it was walking on the road. nice view from the top. parts were not marked, specifically the road section... you could easily take the longer hike by accident.

A lot of the trail was a road but it was still enjoyable. The trail was well maintained. Very pretty hike during the fall. Our dog loved it.
