Nice but traffic noise.

Beautiful mountains with captivating views. Though it gets steep at certain points, the trek to Devil’s Pulpit is well worth the adventure!

Gorgeous views and a very easy ascent on the Indian Monument Trail to the left after you park. Ran into a few people but they were all very nice. Even met a hiking couple from Colorado. Good news, Atlas (German shepherd) did not go after any chipmunks! ;) Though there were tons! I posted photos. It gets a little tight at the top and Atlas didn't want to go over the rocks, but then we saw that there was a pass around. All in all 5 stars! Would go again in a heartbeat. Oh. Bring your debit card. There's a meter for paying for parking at the lot.

Not super difficult, but I broke a pretty good sweat on the way up on an unseasonably-warm Fall day. The trail follows the road for a bit, so there's a good bit of noise, but eventually it meanders through the woods, climbing steadily until opening up to some pretty great views at the top. The trail was a bit rocky, interspersed with tree roots, but that's to be expected in this area.

Beautiful views at the top with well marked trails. One of my favorite hikes!

We two 70+year-olds really enjoyed this trail. The difficulty was in the rocky terrain and not the elevation, so it was fun but not taxing.
The trailhead is NOT at Fountain Pond Park, as stated in this app. It has its own parking area at 551 Stockbridge Rd. in Great Barrington.
