I had an hour to kill while out of town and this was perfect! Took about twice as long to get to the top as it did to come down, but the views were worth it. Well marked, fairly technical, and is mostly rock towards the top. Wish I had time to go longer- worth the $4. Heads up, they only take credit cards in the booth near catamount. The main entrance is cash only.

Very short but a good climb and lots of fun. There is not much of a view due to trees blocking the vista but it was a great hike. The trail is not marked with blazes, but occasionally there are white markers that say catamount. There are many little trails that run off the trail that are obvious in the summer, which are possibly mountain bike trails

The way we went, which was the most clear path (up Catamount, down Catamount shortcut, didn't bother doing the extension at the top) was only about 2 miles. Makes it an easy to intermediate hike. Yes the whole way up is an incline, but it's not too steep. Catamount shortcut is a shorter way up, but much steeper!

Absolutely gorgeous. The trail was well marked and very quiet for it being a 70 degree afternoon in October. Totally worth the 4 dollars per person park fee.
