Great trail top to bottom. The lower section of the trail is pretty easy and uneventful, once you get about half way up there are a few low angle rock scrambles that can be tricky when wet. There are a number of vista points along the way. The summit is open rock above tree line with views of Mount Rosa and the Pack Monadnocks. The Dublin trail has almost no crowds but once you reach the summit there will be a fair amount of people. The Dublin trail is great for first timers since it is the easiest way up. Hiking shoes are a must for the rocks, bug spray is recommended

did a night hike via Dublin trail. short one with a slope increasing toward the end. absolutely recommend for a night hike. trail marks are frequent and glowing at night. decided to do it on an almost full-moon night, but the green(dark?) tunnel won't pass any light through. it will take you a bit longer than the normal one hour. it is was more slippery than I expected. I guess it's not a good idea to do it at night during winter time. don't let the temperature fool you, the wind makes it feel way colder than that

much less crowded and beautiful woods at the start. still lots of hiking with a view, but not as exposed as some of the other trails. All in all a great little hike!

Loved this hike! Very well marked trail through fairly open woods is very pretty and peaceful. Stony trail with tree roots steadily climbs; transitions to mostly easy ledge rock about halfway, however some are steeper and you have to carefully choose your path. Slippery when damp or wet! The trees thin out starting at 3/4mi from the summit and beautiful vistas come into view. The last approx. 1/4mi to the summit is open ledge with gorgeous views all around; birds, rain puddles, and alpine wildflowers in small protected nooks are delightful. The wind was very gusty at the summit but the 360° view was amazing! Lots of people there as several trails lead up. The Dublin trail was very quiet in comparison. One couple alerted us that they had seen a black bear in the lower woods, moving away from the trail, so bear spray is advisable. Fantastic day hike

Great hike on a very nice trail. We picked the trail less traveled and that's what it was. Very few people on the trail. When we got to the summit there were hundreds of people there most of whom must have come up the south side. If you want less traffic on the trail this is the way to go. Vistas along the way were beautiful as well as the view from the summit. Boston was visible to the east. Awesome!

Nice trail, but hard. Really stiff for most of the part. Have to climb big rocks and was dangerous for some part. Not friendly for small children. Otherwise, view at the top is beautiful.
