As the others said, this hike definitely depends on which trail you take. We intended on taking the blue trail to bring us to the top to see the views, however, we just ended up going in one big loop. PS there was a ton of nats!

A sunset hike with excursion off the Blue Blaze up to the high-tension power lines. Sighted a bobcat at the power lines. Trail conditions are not great at the moment. Many downed trees and debris made some sections difficult to traverse. Great hike overall though!

Good trail! Just knowing which direction to take makes the big difference. It's steep but its rewarding. You can see Route 8 from the top.

Fun, challenging. Very forgiving in terms of the path you can take.

Also accessible from the Jericho Whitestone connector trail. Minimal parking on Waterbury Road near #2057. I like approaching from that side because it's uphill on the way in , downhill on the way out.

Walked through a giant spider web. Wasn't too happy about that. Other than that it was a great hike. Perfect early autumn hike
