If you have bad knees and going down is harder than going up, take the Boulder trail first, then the Brook Trail, and end on the Main Trail.

I usually hike the little trails at Major as I'm not a fan of the mountain stampedes....hence my rating is not 5. This trail has great views, some challenges on the southern part and is easy to follow. I'm a huge fan of all the trails at Major and encourage anyone to try some of the little ones you see heading out from the bottom of the Brook trail. (Bee Line...A Line etc.) Look for the Man of Major: Art!

Ended up being 4.5 miles. Did the Boulder Loop (orange) to the summit and Brook Trail (yellow) down to where it connects to the Main Trail (blue). Great views from the top. Great for dogs. Would recommend starting with Boulder (left at the parking lot) if going to do that trail.
