Such an underrated trail... The view at the top is magnificent! I certainly would not rate this hike as moderate. It's very easy as it's a steady gradual incline directly to the view and to the summit on a gravel ATV trail. There isn't much space to park and you can't block the gate. The distance I recorded was 3.34 miles. There are 5 towers to visit, the first 2 being at the view, which there is a big sign saying "view" and points to the direction to go. I saw a lot of frog eggs in the puddles, so please be careful in your footing this time of year. This hike is definitely worth it, the view is exceptional.

Pretty good climb, but nice view! There are VIEW signs that help out a lot. I spoke with a landowner on an ATV up there, seems nice, but very protective of his land (understandable). Sounds like he just wants everyone to respect the land and the signs. The Keep Out sections in particular (just wants his own private area on his land which I can certainly understand). Parking is near or to the left of the orange gate. There are signs not to block the gate or the driveway across the road.

Less trail and more dirt/gravel road in most places. Nice easy hike that can be done within an hour and with kiddos. It’s steep going up but super safe for impulsive or new hiker littles.

Rocky trail made for ATVs but the view at the top is spectacular - definitely worth it. Follow the signs that say “view” around the big cell tower; it gets muddy near the end but you’ll end up on a cliff next to the final tower with a clear view.

Take cell phone tower access road. Bug spray necessary during bottom 1/2 of trail. Lots of warblers. Took us about 40 minutes to first tower. Signs from there point towards view. Stay on access road. Another few minutes to view. Round trip less than 1.25 hours if leisurely.

About six inches of snow with a thick sheet of slippery ice. Pretty good view at the top.

1/4/19, A moderate hike for some OK views if you don't mind walking around chain link fences with communication towers inside them. Icy dirt roads under some fresh snow meant microspikes were required. I was the first to hike after some fresh snow, but even without snowshoes it wasn't bad. Lots of fresh animal tracks, deer, bobcats, squirrels and mice.

Gravel road is steep! But very rewarding at the top. Follow trail behind 1st tower, it's a hidden clear view!

As someone else said this is not an easy hike, more like moderate. I think I missed something or maybe it was the time of year (late summer) I went but I didn't find much of a view. Which was quite disappointing as you can tell you are quite high up. I think the second tower had the best view. The third tower seems to technically be the top of the mountain but I didn't find a view. I suspect the view is better in the winter when there are no leaves blocking the view.

Nice moderate snowshoe hike on an ATV trail. Recommend going past the first large cell tower with gated area to the left, then curving to the right and up to the second tower. Highly recommend that you go to the second tower to take in the magnificent views.

Relatively easy hike, only took about twenty minutes to get to top from where we parked, but the view at the top was beautiful. Our dog also enjoyed it!

Pretty good hike. Not long enough, barely got my heart rate up.

I'm not sure who rates these things but this hike is not "easy". I've hiked a lot in the White Mountains and Acadia National Park and done some very difficult hikes which this doesn't necessarily compare to but to say that it is easy is deceiving. It is basically all up hill which is fine. It's primarily used as an ATV trail. The downside is that at the top there is some loose footing due to oversized rocks that were laid down. I was concerned I would twist an ankle. My daughter hiked it all on her own though so it wasn't too bad. Nice view at the top if you go around the back side of the tower.

This is really great for snowshoeing; walk the logging path to just before the first tower, bear left on to the spur trail which will take you along the ridge to two other towers and some kind of marginal views, but the terrain is fun.

Easy to moderate depending on how active you are but not very demanding overall. Offers great views of Mount Sunapee and Mount Ascutney if you continue past the.first tower. The trail itself is a ATV path used by service technicians working on the cell phone towers. Just drive to the end of Cat Hole Road and park in the dirt turn around leaving the driveway to the left unblocked. The trail is on the right past the gate.
