it was incredibly buggy. Like so many bugs that you have to continuously swat at your head. A few times, I thought they were going to swarm into a bug monster and eat me. The hike was nice and the view gorgeous tho, so 2 stars.

can confirm trails could use better blazes, however there is a nice view from the top. lots of cut trails that are not marked and unmaintained old roads as well. to do again, I recommend starting with the trail off the bottom of the parking as you come in and circling back by the less maintained roads and field. lots and lots of ticks. nesting birds in the fields. parking fits not more than 10 cars or so.

A little buggy but not too bad. Going up was steep and not well maintained but not too long and worth the view. The rest of the loop was somewhat confusing but manageable with the app. Goes through a pretty wildflower field with some old picturesque graveyards. Only saw one other group of people the whole time.

Beautiful hike and beautiful view. We took the trail from the parking area. The ascent was fairly steep and if you aren’t a regular hiker, suggest you go in from the Burrows Farm trail for a more gradual climb. Many black flies, we used nets to stay sane. Also check for ticks because we had quite a few. Coming from the summit we came down through Burrows Farm Site - neat if you like seeing old cellar holes. This one also had the remains of an old car and an old family cemetery. Not much parking at the trailhead and part of the road coming in was dirt.

if you start the hike by walking south of the parking lot, you get a steep trail going up to the peak. the trail is fairly remote and you drive a short ways on a dirt road to get there.

Decent trail for MTB if you want a good workout. Gets a bit technical at the top with lots of sharp rocks. Had a few hike-a-bike moments. Beautiful overlook!

3/24/20 2.3 miles, 1 hr 30 mins. After last night's snowfall of 6 inches, we decided to snowshoe Phoebes Nable. We hiked the loop clockwise, starting the ascent from the trail sign near the entrance to the parking lot. It was a steady climb of .07 miles. Nice views looking east, southeast. The hike down was fairly easy thru the woods, across the field and along the woods road. Note: After descending from the woods and across the field, the trail is in the field, along the edge of the woods. After you pass the first cemetery, continue to the left, (there is a trail to the right but it crossed private property). At the junction, turn right to follow the woods road back to the parking lot.

Great trail, you might have to go a bit further down the burrows farm trail as one section is closed to residents, quiet with some great mini waterfalls, nice summit, will def hike again in the summer

If your looking for quiet hike up a small mountain then this is the hike for you. I took my dog with me and I only passed one other person during my hike. Which is nice if you enjoy less populated areas. Bug Spray would be suggested and all the trails were marked well. There are also many other trails you can connect to off of this.

Great easy and well maintained trail with a nice South facing view at the summit. Fishing opportunity for pickeral in a pond at the base of the mountain (private property so be extra polite) and a cool abandoned farm.
