The directions on this hike are very inaccurate. The address listed for the start of the hike on Sloan Road is for the Farm Field Reservation, and it's a network of flat trails around the farm. We asked a local, and located the parking lot for the Phelps Trail on Oblong Rd, between Sloan Rd and Rt 43. It's 1.5 miles up to the Taconic Crest Trail, then a right 2 miles to Berlin Mt. We only reached the TCT, having wasted lots of time finding the trailhead. Very steep hike, but loved the stone fences along the way.

Really enjoyed this hike. First mile is somewhat of a steep hike.... then mostly levels out. Very well marked, heavily wooded. Nice view at the top. Never saw another person on route. Bring sufficient water and gear. I will definitely return.

VERY HARD HIKE!!!!!!!! Was not expecting it to be as strenuous as it was....there is a grave stone on the very top and remnants of where there was once a fire tower....if you are in good shape bring plenty of water and snacks....it's all uphill from there!
