I hiked this trail with my two dogs today. It's one of my favorites on the mountain. Every time I come here, I am amazed at the amount of work and care shown by the DCR staff and volunteers who maintain these trails. Today the trails were a little muddy in spots, but not too bad. You can plainly see where staff has cut little runoff channels to drain those spots. The bugs are out in force right now, so bring repellent for yourselves (and dogs, if you bring them). All in all, this mountain has some of the nicest trails in the state. There are a multitude of options to reach the summit, ranging from moderate for the experienced hiker, to easy for first-timers or those with young children (or old dogs!). Whether you are looking for a good workout, or just want to spend some time with the family, this is the place to go!

Fairly steep and rocky, but pretty short, the views from the summit are great.

Very icy currently, however, if you stick just to the side of the main trail (in the snow) you’ll get enough traction to go right up and back down. Beautiful weather and not too crowded.
