Nice short hike with beautiful views along the way. Nice moderate 0.8 miles hike from parking area on Rt 3 to the peak. Trail has portions that could be wet in spring but are covered with board walk. The most scenic overlook is before you get to summit. Trail crosses the carriage road several times.

Nice hike. We parked at the Wildwood Stables and took the trail south. Great views at the top. Agree with others that you can lose the trail crossing the carriage road. We continued on to the Lower Day Mtn, Hunter Cliff Tr, the Beach Tr and finally back via Hunters Brook Trail.

Relatively easy hike that affords lovely views, up to and over the summit of Day Mountain.

Per earlier comments the trail was not well marketed as you crossed over the carriage road. The hike continued up about ~20 feet on the left as you crossed the carriage road that heads towards the Day Mtn summit.

Nice kid friendly hike, trail is not well marked where it crosses over the carriage road (we somehow missed one of the cross-over so ended up walking some of the carriage road) but isn't super strenuous to the peak, and a nice wooded trail down the decent on the other side. Walked back to the parking area by way of the carriage trail.

Nice moderate 0.8 miles hike from parking area on Rt 3 to the peak. Trail has portions that could be wet in spring but are covered with board walk. The most scenic overlook is before you get to summit. Trail crosses the carriage road several times. I recommend hiking stick or poles for the descent.

If you do this hike in the summer it can be very warm
