would recommend going up the right hand fork in the road and down that side as well. veering left will have you scrambling on ice atop granite. not pleasant up or down!

Good hike, but bad weather. Everything past a mile in was snow-covered, but too lightly covered for snow shoes. An extremely foggy day offered no visibility at the summit, so I don’t know if the view is fabulous or nonexistent. Also, the map suggests the peak is at 1,673' but the sign at the top says 1,739'. Who's right? P.S. Don’t go by my time. I was moving super slow in sloppy conditions. Should have used crampons. Descending was extremely slow work on icy wet services...

Great winter hike. easy/moderate with some ice near the top. Used micro spikes and poles on the way down. 1 hour up, 35 minutes down.

HikingGreat!

This hike was quick and easy for a moderate to advanced hiker. I suggest going up Middle Trail and add Middle Mtn into the loop- great views and fairly quiet on a sunny, clear Saturday afternoon. Then, hike down middle to and fork right to Peaked Mtn Trail to Peaked Mtn, which also has some views. My round trip was 5.5 miles. Rock stepping but no bouldering, a little wet but was completely fine in trail shoes.

it was a littel hard getting up , the hike is short toke me and my husband 1h 55 min but the elevation got up really fast ... but the view on top was definitely worth it ! we got luckey with nice dry weather but I can see that could be difficult to go up in a littel bit colder weather. but definitely recomend it for a good work out !
