I only did the liberty trail up and back but a very pleasant hike with a good challenge at the end. Makes the view that much better.

Hiked up liberty and down claybrook. It rained a lot the day before for it was pretty wet and the rocks were slippery. We hiked with our 23 pound terrier mix who's pretty agile. He handled it well and there was only one spot we needed to lift him. Beautiful hike. Barely anyone on the trial.

I thought this was a vey difficult hike. We went up Brook and down Liberty. Once you are above the tree line, they were equally as difficult. Liberty is definitely a more gentle pace compared to Brook. Brook was poorly marked in many spots. Liberty is an obvious path and you don't really need the trail markers for most of it. We did the trail slowly and it was about 6.5-7 hours round trip.

Up Liberty and down Brook. Great hike with amazing views up top. Damp due to recent rainfall. Bring bug spray!

Loved going up Liberty trail, well visible where trail was. Views on top as always so rewarding. we went down Brook Trail. it was a bit challenging do to steep smooth and very wet rock ledges. Once past them a beautiful trail along the brook with many crossing. Overall fantastic hike.

Hiked up Liberty and down Brooke. Liberty going up was pretty easy. We had 9 year old and dog with us. All good. Easy to follow because clear path. From cabin to peak was a challenge because of rock face and the dog. Gorgeous views even before summit so wouldn't have been bad to turn around and not summit but...bagged it. Opted to come down Brooke. Initially it was close to treacherous, minimal blazes and lots of rock faces. Since it rained day prior this made for slick travels. But then Brooke becomes great! In the end, I would go up Brooke (knowing towards top it might be tricky to find way and if there were downed trees it would be even trickier)...just go up. I'd then go down liberty. Best part of the trip for us was the crew of young adults who came up behind us and then hiked with us. Most gracious, thoughtful and down right lovely crew I've met in awhile. Thank you to them for their support and company! My nine year old hauled a** with you on the trail, a blessing!
