It was a nice hike, the Middle Mt Trail is MUCH easier than the Peaked Mt Trail

We went today and loved it! On the way up we went up on the south side which was steeper and we got down by the north side which was longer.
It was definitely a challenge, especially closing up to the Peaked side view but the view we got at the top was well worth it. Amazing sight and today was the perfect day for it! Will definitely come back again !!!
Loved the challenge!
I would rate it moderate.

Great hike. I wouldn't consider this an "easy" trail. However, it was totally worth it! Great views from the top. I would like to try this again in the Fall.

Beautiful trail, clearly marked. Unfortunately I was unable to make it all the way to the summit due to some fresh ice that I just could not pass with my microspikes. Will definitely go back once the temperatures rise again.

Definitely more challenging than anticipated and would rate it as an easy to moderate trail but overall a good winter hike via snowshoes.

Very good hike by snowshoe! Beautiful trails with great natural beauty. Not very challenging physically. But a great walk nevertheless.

Loved it! Was a little slippery with the leaves but was a great hike! We got lost towards the end but found the road no problem. Fun family activity!
