Challenging in the sense that it feels like you're climbing on a stair master the entire time. No rock scrambling and not very difficult, just a steep walk up. Views were breathtaking at the summit. Acorns and loose rocks going down can make it a bit slippery so a bit of caution there is recommended - but overall a easy hike

Planned a West side Alander Mountain trail. For a day after heavy rain, the trail was fine, expectedly, reasonably wet/dry. Bridges, wet fords, trails sharing stream beds. Shortest route to summit, but climbs & mixed up & down on return. If an in & out, one may partly hike S. Taconic for it's view from the summit, it is marked. Otherwise all day it, or overnight. Used trailhead from Mt. Washington State Forest HQ.

I would definitely rank this as intermediate, as there were only a few short sections with a steep incline. The trail was really beautiful, a few waterfalls and tons of streams. A few streams interrupted the path when i went yesterday but nothing too difficult to hike around. I would absolutely recommend this hike.
