Great day. Trail well marked but could use a touch up in some spots.

Had a great hike today. In my early 60s and was my first hike of the year. I’m a slow poke and stop looking at things and needed the rest after some of the steeper rocky inclines. Took about 2-1/2 hours up and back including about 30 minutes hanging out at summit. Rating of moderate is accurate. Challenging but not too much for me. Great views at top and lots of nature in between. Not crowded either as I’ve heard about Monadnock. I did reserve a parking space night before but at 8:30 didn’t need it. Better safe than sorry.

Loved this trail! Well marked except one spot where trail goes right up a rock scramble but trail looks like it goes straight, saw several hikers make the same mistake as I was coming back.

Well kept trail with clear, frequent markings. Some challenging areas with rocky inclines/declines, but overall, one of my favorite trails.

the first time i came to miller state park, i got SO lost because the trail markers were so faded. this time, the trail markers looked freshly painted. the paths are super clear and takes you right up. the wapack trail has a nice lil’ hole in the trees with view on your way (maybe .3 of a mile up?) up if you decided to start that way. i was able to knock the loop out in under and hour and a half.

My second visit, very nice facilities with a well thought of online parking payment system. climbed up the wapack which was well marked and relatively direct route to the summit. Due to the unusual cold spring there was a few spots of ice and snow but still very manageable. I plan on returning.

Great trail! Very well marked with a tower, multiple picnic tables and bathrooms at the top. The climb is consistent up a path of rocks with some mud and steams here and there. Overall good condition and would certainly visit again!
