Moderate hike up and down the trail. Still quite wet. Nice views up at the top both the summit and the overlook near the top. We did the hike in 3.5 hrs taking several stops.

This was my first mountain hike, and this trail was alot of fun. Not overly crowded on a Sunday afternoon either. Took me about 3 hours total round trip, but I stayed an extra 2 1/2 hrs at the top summit because the view was incredible. Heads up though- there was alot of scrambling up rocks (slippery/sometimes quite steep). I'm a 20 y/o in good shape and I was drenched in sweat when I got to the top. Walking stick recommended- the workout is almost as good as the view.

Was a good challenge for our 4th hike. Had a great time!

It was challenging, but mostly because of how slippery it was through the woods. It was definitely a fun trail once you got above the treeline, which was only a quarter mile but felt longer. It was unfortunately foggy at the summit, and there wasn't much of a view, but a little further down below the clouds you could see a decent distance, and what we could see was incredible.

I hiked this trail my first time doing Monadnock mainly because me and my boyfriend got lost trying to find the trailhead for an easier rated route. it was still icy and basically straight up a waterfall of frozen over rocks once you get up past the toll road but it was absolutely beautiful and if my out of shape ass could do it then it can't be that bad haha.

The beginning on the Toll Road is slow, but once you hit the actual trail it's a no nonsense rock scrambler that goes straight to the top. It's my favorite trail thus far.

Great trail. Challenging rocky climb but worth it at the top. Very well marked.

Took 1.5 hours to get up and 1 hour to get down. The sun was setting on our way down which was a gorgeous view but a little treacherous on the climb down. Until you get into the woods the hike on the road was pretty boring but the adventure once you got into the woods was worth it.
