Wonderful hike- lightly traveled but the blazes were recently refreshed so it was easy to follow. There is a little traffic noise at the start but it quickly fades away.

It’s a nice medium difficulty, neither strenuous nor easy. Most of the elevation gain is on gentle slopes. The 5.3 miles seems a little low- we stopped at the overlooks and got a good look at the pond and my phone recorded 7 miles for the whole trip.

As far as wildlife, we saw lots of moose tracks, startled some ruffed grouse and saw loons on the pond.
