HikingGreat!

Nice trail and well marked. Good views from the peak of the white mountains. Some of the trails are shared with ATVs and motorbikes. Be sure to check out Mill Sluice Foot Trail for some pretty water views!

HikingGreat!

During the winter months and mud season the parking lot off of Tarleton rd, Tarleton rd and mountain there is no parking. Parking is located at the getaway, if those spots are filled, you need to find another place to hike. Trails are marked good, some blow down from winter storms. Respect land owners property on way in and be respectful to the houses at the beginning of Tarleton rd.

Went up Neville peak scout trail but somehow went the wrong way coming down (went what felt like the natural path down, with lots of rocks, muddy) and ended up at a blue trail (not on map, fallen trees, which we went down but then backtracked up to tarelton road). Town forest parking was closed, with note to park at Getaway. Only some ice at the beginning of the path, no spikes needed. Beautiful day out! 3/26

HEADS UP: if you're planning to do this in winter/early spring, you need to park in mountain road. There's no parking on Tarlton and the road to the trailhead is closed. Trail is poorly marked, we ended up off trail multiple times.

Parked at Town Forest lot, hiked up the Scout trail and then down around the other side by the water and falls. Needed the spikes for some of the trial. It was a nice exploration, peaceful and pretty well marked.

Parked at the Town Forest parking (right side of road before you get to the trailhead, look for green and yellow signs) then walked on the road past a sheep farm on your left about .25 miles to get to the trail head. There is a parking lot right near the trailhead, but it’s closed (and blocked off) in the winter. The town forest lot had spaces for 6-7 cars and was lit in case you return after sunset (like we did). Grab a map at the trailhead, not so much for the trail map (suggest using All Trails GPS for that) but a drawing of the mountain tops you’ll see at the top of this hike. There is a rewarding view at the top of this trail for your 500+ foot elevation gain. We went on a clear day and could see many of the mountain tops on the map. Followed All Trails route and direction and suggest you do the same, as the way up the Neville Peak Scout Trail provided a nicer forest hike up and elevation gain than the other way (Tarleton Road) which was quite rocky, muddy, and really nothing more than a messy old road that was really torn up. No matter which way you go, the trail gets icy quickly at the trail head, so we were glad we had micro spikes and poles to help. Boots alone or Yak Tracks would not really cut it, as heavy trail usage and warm melting days and freezing nights made the ice on the trail quite hard. The way down from the top to the trail head via Tarleton Road was quite tertius and messy. We and others found it easier to make their way down through the woods running in parallel to the road. Found the ice was so hard packed down on Tarleton Road that even micro spikes would slip. If you go to the beaver pond, look out for orange blazes (on your right) to turn back into the trail system and away from private land and what looks like a shooting range. If you cross over water overspilling the trail, a rock dam, and a fire pit, you’ve gone too far and missed the turn back to the trail head via Mill Sluice Foot Trail (where there are some stream and small water fall views).

This was my first solo hike. a perfect one for any beginners out there. Crampons are a must. there is still enough snow and ice to make it beautiful. Until the closer parking opens you need to park at the town forest lot, so you have a walk before you even get to the trail, but its worth it! Have fun!

A bit icy, micro spikes were a necessity. Trails were marked well. A great hike. Remember to park at the town forest parking. We talked to the DPW and they will be posting no parking signs along the roads leading into the trail.

So happily surprised with this hike! We went the opposite direction recommended by AllTrails and really enjoyed ending our hike with the beautiful lake and stream. View is beautiful from the top. Very icy in some parts, micro spikes are highly recommended!

As said: road to parking lot blocked. Have to park on Mountain Road. Lots of running water under ice: bring spare socks! Western segment of the trail very wet & eroded. Lots of debris & downed trees--be prepared to scramble a bit. View at the top is worth the climb.

lol Lot of downed trees. Trailhead road is closed, so there’s an extra .25 miles to walk there. Pretty view from the top.
