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.

Decent ascend, not strenuous and a quick walk to the top with a good view. Nice to do if you don't have time for a long hike!

One of the most beautiful trails I've ever run. There's an old Walmart with plenty of parking just a block away from the trailhead. If you have the time, go to Indian Pond and come back on Mine Ledge. Makes for a tough, but rewarding 5.25 loop.

great trail, not difficult at all. Mine ledge was really nice, great views. More of a workout going down to Indian pond.

It was a bit steep at first but smoothed out. Great views on top!
