I discovered why this is called mount Kilburn. Because if it doesn't kill you your legs will burn. Holy moly is this steep. It's not long but it is steep. A high clearance vehicle could drive most of the way though. It's an ok hike but not my cup of tea. At the top there is a view of downtown bellows falls. I wasn't able to get decent pictures as the sun was in my eyes when I went in the evening. I imagine it's a nice place to take in the sunset. But if you want to take pictures I recommend going earlier in the day.

left just before sundown. bear right at both forks on the access road. you'll pass a small pond and some type of facility. the mountains look as though they go on forever at the ending view point. the sun peeking through the trees and glistening on the tiny creek you follow on the way back down was breathtaking. short hike

First three quarters of the hike are straight up, and won't be easy. The last quarter is level and quite pleasant and the views are totally worth it.

Steep access road to a communications tower for the most part. About 8/10 of a mile up the steep road (did I mention that it was steep?) you hook off to the right onto a small trail for another quarter mile to table rock and the great view over the valley and Bellows Falls. Short but nice.

Short hike, little scenery, and lots of mosquitos.

Headed up past the gate and came to a fork just a few minutes later. Bear right, pass a picture perfect marsh pond bordered by a rock wall. The logging road gets rocky and steeper and around a mile theres another fork, bear right again and a few minutes later arrive at the directional lookout over Bellows Falls. Good trail for excercise but very little scenery.
