This closing may be extended and will be notified if so. The Blue trail starts at the very right most point of the grassy parking area directly off the road. The trail head sign is just inside the tree line - about 100 ft from the road. The Blue Trail named "North Peak Trail" will split and you have a choice of the "Blue Trail" or the "Yellow Trail (Twin Brooks Trail)". The Blue Trail is the most direct to the summit and most aggressive climbing through woods trails and up rock faces. The Yellow Trail is longer and more gradual ascent to the top. Going up the Blue Trail and down the Yellow Trail will give you an easier decent. The Blue Trail can take about 3 hours round trip while going up the Blue Trail and down the Yellow Trail can take about 4 hours. The Yellow Trail has a nice spring and brooks along the trail.

I did this trail on May 24th. I went up the blue trail and down the yellow trail. Going up blue was a rockier ascent with some scrambling where some smaller dogs might need assistance. The views were pretty amazing for such a short hike. The yellow trail is not very scenic and is also poorly marked but otherwise it was a great day.

This is a solid hike. I did blue up and yellow down. The yellow trail was a bit hard to follow in spots but not too bad. Some hornets nests you need to watch out for on the steep section just before the summit.

Was a good short day hike, took a little effort to get up. Says it’s only 3.6 miles but doing the whole loop I believe was closer to 5.5 mi. Nice views but can’t really see much of the White Mountains, blocked by trees. Closed right now unfortunately

The trail is closed leaving people with less opportunity to be outside. Shame on you brownfield for trying to control people.

I would be cautious with when you hike this trail. If it has rained prior to your hiking time I’d be weary of mud and flooded creeks, the same can occur during snowmelt.

Trail is relatively well-marked with blue! You will have to scramble towards the top and it is very hard to go down the mountain as an out and back. If you are not well-balanced, continue the loop and go down the back side of the mountain where it is more gradual. Beautiful views overall!

went blue line up and yellow down. the blue line is pretty scrambly at the top but doable. my wife had our 2 year old strapped to her back and had no problem. yellow trail on the way down is confusing and not well marked. it is also pretty scrambly in spots. if my wife and I do this again we plan on doing blue up and back.

Took blue trail up and yellow down. No need for snowshoes as our spikes worked perfectly. A bit icy and muddy in spots which is normal for this time of year. The streams on the way down were lovely to see and hear. Sunny and 48 F...gorgeous day for a hike!!
