Icy - use spikes - saw some bravehearts without them but I would not. Went counter clockwise to finish summit first. On sunny days expect puddles.

It was a great day! Since it was a Friday there were very few people on the trail. I took the direct path (counter clockwise) and hit the summit first. It took about 30 min - the trail had hard packed snow, and lots of ice. Microspikes were needed... in the later afternoon the spots that had sun exposure became a slushy message - and you posthole off the trail.

Did it on Feb 6 and it was great! Trees were covered in snow in the forest part (Semuhenna trail). Used spikes all the way.

HikingGreat!IcySnow

It was a very nice hike on a glorious winter day. The up and down after the main mountain kept in interesting, but also made it a bit more of a work out. The stretch on the Stage Coach Road was a bit boring and I never realized how loud wind turbines are.

Did some off trail exploring after missing blazes and signs (which were minimal), but beautiful day to be out despite the cold and wind. Watch your step, it’s a bit icy!

It looks like a gorgeous trail and view but we had to turn around about .4 up because the ice was awful. We had good hiking traction boots but we needed to turn around. Looks like a very popular trail. I’d like to do it when it’s not as icy.

HikingGreat!Icy

Great hike. Wet, not too slippery. I went without cramp ons and felt safe. Took stage coach to cut off a bit of the trail and it was a highlight (walking right by wind turbines)

Fun hike- meandering through different landscapes with lots to look at. Seeing Boston from afar is always a bonus! Today, No need for micro spikes. Minimal/ avoidable ice.
