Dan's post from 3 weeks ago is spot on. The only addition is to make sure you explore both sides of the summit as there are good views in both directions. Only passed 2 groups. 1 hr up-- 2:20 total round trip.

This was a nice rigorous hike. We went in late May so the flies were annoying, but really only at the top. There were a couple muddy spots at the beginning but none after that. It's a steady climb all the way up and the steepest part is right before you reach the peak. The trail was very well marked and maintained, and the views at the top were a great reward.

Steep grade on a very well maintained and traveled path. A lot of people. Rocky in spots. Easy parking. Definitely coming back for foliage. Make sure to look both sides.

This is my go to hike. I try to enjoy it weekly. I hike fast to get a good workout I can be up and down in an hour. But generally and an easy pace it takes about 1:45-2 hours. View at the top is worth it. Sunrise can be amazing up there!

I love this hike. Nice 2-3 hours with lovely views and just demanding enough to feel good. Do it every time I visit Williamstown.

Accurate rating of moderate difficulty, it was a steady incline the whole way up. I'd call it high-moderate for the steady incline. Trails were extremely well kept and marked all the way up. That is until the peak, there's a sign to stay on trail but then the path at the top to the summit isn't marked anymore. There are a few spots to check out the beautiful views. Great day hike, worth coming back in the fall for the foliage.
Parking was a bit tough, small area but fortunately people were leaving and a couple of spots opened up. Just something to keep in mind.
