Hiked on 10/15/17. Warm October day with great fall color. Small parking area so we parked along the road. The trail is easy and wide. Lots of folks with their dogs. The view at the top is very nice but not as open as you might think. Terrific walk as we were traveling through the area but I wouldn't go 2 hours out of my way for the hike...

This is a good hike and a good cardio workout, whether you climb straight up or enjoy the switchbacks (which is what we did). The views from the top are great, with down-town Brattleboro and beyond below. Park at the old Walmart closer to the stores that are still in business as car break-ins are common. Don't leave anything valuable in your car and don't leave any change in your ashtray or console visible.
