Easy trail and the view at the end can’t be beat. The hike to the top is brief and all at the end and can get a little tricky on the well worn trail.

Nice trail but we followed suggested route which landed us with no trail to follow.

Short trail along the black stone. The look out points have some nice views but are blocked by some pretty large trees. Overall a nice hike with some cool graffiti at the end but other than that, the look out spots are filthy. Glass and trash everywhere. Such a shame.

Nice walk, some uphill but nothing too strenuous. Kids loved the graffiti.

The trail was hard to follow. Lots of trails off the main paths. This was okay but there are other trails nearby that are better.

I wouldn’t classify this trail as easy, moderate is more appropriate. Trail is narrow, rocky and uneven with tree roots. Scenery is beautiful and worth the effort. Love all of the random New England boulders scattered around the landscape. Recommend only if you are up for moderate hiking.

An easy hike. Well marked in the beginning but towards the end of the trail close to the rock it wasn't. I got lost a couple times but thanks to the alltrails app, found my way back to the trail. if you want to climb the lookout rock (highly recommend) you have to go around it. There are two rocks. The small one is easier to find. the view is spectacular from the big one. On my way back I kept hearing gun shots because hunting is allowed here. It wasn't very pleasant to the ears.

I had to use the map a few times because it’s not clear which way to go. Narrow at parts due to a little overgrown. Go right at the construction equipment. Wear bug spray too. Overall not bad.

A short walk leads to a spectacular view to the south from Lookout Rock. It's best in the fall during peak foliage time. Unfortunately the experience is near ruined by the ridiculous amount of graffiti covering the entire rock surfaces in the area. No doubt the handiwork of local dirtballs. The DCR should invest in some trail cams or other surveillance devices to catch the vandals responsible for defacing the park. The trail was also littered with trash and dog crap from other equally irresponsible urchins. Unfortunately it's no surprise, as people think nothing about trashing our local natural resources.

Easy morning walk with my two dogs. Wildflowers in the pond are beautiful at this time of the year, despite their invasiveness. No bugs today. No people either! Only disappointment is the graffiti on Lookout Rock - it never ceases to amaze me how some people think it’s ok to deface natural land features.
