Great trail to transition between easy and moderate hikes. Its a shorter trail with not too many super steep areas. It’s a smoother incline for the most part. Picture perfect view from the top :)

We did this one in the fall as well, and it really is more easy than moderate. Snowshoes weren’t really necessary, because it is a snowmobile trail, and nicely packed. A couple of snowmobiles went by as we hiked, we simply stepped to the side and let them pass. I personally did not feel this took away from the hike in anyway. It is nearly mid March so the snow was on the softer side. I would recommend crampons, or any sort of traction device for the push up near the summit, it is not steep really, but still for safety, a good idea.

Took about 45 minutes to do! Short and sweet walk with decent views at the top. Very easy trail.

Following GPS was able to see trail sign near the woods. Beautiful fall colored, near panoramic views at top, followed by a nice sunset. No complaints.

Great trail run! My 12 year old dog loved it. Well maintained and marked. Nice views too.

After being bummed out by Bond Mountain a friend and I decided to drive 5 minutes down the road to hike Knox Mountain. The trails were already much better; clearly following a snowmobile trail and not as rocky and UNEVEN. There are a couple parts that have a lot of routes so watch your step. We FINALLY made it to the top. Okay views. Defiently moderate. We were dead by the time we reached the top with my dog (her first 2 mountains she's hiked with us).

Wonderful views. Pretty steep for small mountain. Good quick hike. My three-year-old made it to the top.

Crushed this hill. Nice views but it's a walk in the woods and not a hike.

Great trail for a morning hiking with my dogs yesterday. Went up and back in under an hour. Still some ice and snow making it a little slippery especially on the way down. Will definitely do again!
