Trail of the ledges is a fun steep climb. I recommend going up ledges and down the other way.. The way down on the other trail up the mountain had lots of streams and little water falls. View at the top is also great. I would recommend trekking poles in the winter. I would rate this moderate.

A family of beavers and two deer sightings

we did it in the fall. Amaizing. to of the mountain view is a good payoff. Rated easy but it's not. 2.6 miles of good elevation and sweat at 40 degrees.

This "trail" is misleading. It is actually a sanctuary with many trails of varying difficulty. We did the Overbrook trail to Mt. Lenox, a moderate trail. It starts out fairly flat but it quickly steepens and is rocky in several places. It's worth the views into Vermont and New York at the top.

Ledges trail is moderate. Overlook is easier. this is a really fun 2 hour ish hike !

Some trails are super easy some are strenuous. The way we went was definitely strenuous but fun!

great 3 mile hike. challenging ascent but worth the views at the top. nice peaceful setting. the beaver ponds are worth a visit while you're there. $5 pp fee collected as it is part of Mass Audobon.

We hiked up Ledges and down Overbrook. The summit views are AWESOME. Ledges is rocky; took us 90 minutes. Overbrook was much easier so you could go up and down if you want something less strenuous. It is also a beautiful high canopy forest trail. No bugs today.

Enjoyed the trail, stopped and let the dogs ( my feet) rest in the cool brook water.

Easy loop around several beaver ponds, some minor muddy spots. Lovely woodland where you hear birds and babbling brooks. Frequent benches where you can sit and contemplate nature. Bring your bug spray. Not busy on a lovely Memorial Day weekend.

This was a hard trail - I would not considerate it easy. Several rock scrambles and steep inclines.
