Really great trail. Loved the views and boulders. Was slippery coming down the mountain. Lots of ice even though it was 72 degrees out. Easy to follow, well marked.

Took me 2 hrs 15 min to complete loop. After storm there were lots of trees down. First half of loop (going clockwise) is a bit more challenging to find footing. Second half easy walking on old road. Lots of leaves on ground in fall made it a bit slippery. Boulder field at the far end of the loop.

Great trail loop around north mtn. Did it with my dog and she had fun climbing up the boulders. Some places aren't particularly well marked but overall a great place to wander.

Nice trail, markers were a bit inconsistent so it's easy to get turned around on some private property, better trail marking would have made this a better experience for sure. Other than that this was a nice hike, not too high up so views are still a bit obstructed by the trees but a fun loop – good workout.

Love this trail - great area to explore. You can add on or shorten length of trip easily. Just make sure you have a map because there are LOTS of intersecting trails.

The Boulder field is incredible.

great hike. I'm recovering from foot surgery and am slowly getting back into hiking.

Great hike! Summited and then hiked back down due to time constraints. Recommend microspikes or snowshoes in the winter, trekking poles at the very least!

Beautiful hike on a beautiful early fall day. Took Boulder Trail by accident instead of heading over to the Bypass road, because trail is not well marked at that point. But all's well that ends well. Ended up taking Boulder Trail to Round Pond Road, up the dirt auto road (Collins Rd) then finally back to North Mt. Bypass to finish the marked hike. Probably made this a 7 mile hike. I recommend the excursion because the ponds are beautiful.

As a beginner I thought the trail was definitely moderate. Hard at times mainly the beginning. We did find ourselves off the trail a few times and had to back track. The trail is poorly marked in spots. I can't wait to do it again!

Nice combination of easy and moderate. Well marked. Limited vistas.

The trail was a bit difficult in the beginning but overall a great hike!! Trail is well maintained. It was well marked for about 2/3 of the way. It's was a good thing we had the map from this app parts of the trail. We would definitely do this one again.

Great Trail! Some mildly challenging obstacles both nothing to difficult and the first 3/4 of the trail was very well marked, in fact it seemed to be remarked very recently. The last 1/4 or so the m marking became a little scarce, but the All Trails map guided me perfectly!

I would call this easy, not moderate. There's some cool foliage but are we talking about the same summit here?? The views aren't that good... and I don't think it's really challenging at all for someone who's in at all decent shape. It was worth going once, but I may not go again.

Excellent hike. Some steep parts on either side of the ridge, so get a good workout in. We came in from Round Pond to Boulder to the North Mountain Loop and back for a total of 7 3/4 miles.

Great views from the summit. Our 10 year old Lab had no problems with any of the hike.
