Nice loop with good views from the top. Ascent has some nice steeps, but it's not a sustained climb. Maybe 40 minutes with a half dozen steep sections and then other more moderate sections. Descent via Nutting Hill is very mellow. Some loose rocks so good hiking shoes are recommended. You can do the whole loop in about 2-2.5 hours without rushing.

great trail. Misty showers all the way up...and rain and no view at the top due to clouds and fog, but that's the kind of day that it was. Roots were slick. Certainly intend to do it again in sun and less humidity. Really cool looking multi-trunked pines on the left going up. Watch for them. And a big, split boulder that you and walk right through....

HikingGreat!

Great hiking trail, and great view However, parking is very limited. DO NOT park on the side of Rte 119. I got a $25 parking ticket today, which doesn't make sense at all!

Spectacular view at the top. Worth the hike. Its very steep in some areas, and its pretty buggy. Bring bug spray. Its also very rocky.

Stunning view. So many trails. Less trails than Wachusett but better views than Wachusett.

Great hike ! Moderately difficult. slightly rocky. Small spots to scramble. Well worth the effort. Very packed trails with tons of groups and families and pups. Parking was difficult for a Sunday at 10 am.

This was a Great little hike! Parking can be difficult with a few more spots down the road. We went up the trail near the other parking which went straight up and took about 20 mins then came back down. I couldn’t find a trail name for this part, but it was steep and quick. We then walked along the road and went up the trails near the main entrance. This little Mountain has some fantastic views and I really enjoyed it!

Gorgeous - running water and ponds all around. Quite muddy in spots and you do need to step on rocks/wood bridges to cross streams, but beautiful. Breezy, but beware of annoying bugs. Amazing views!
