We did Big Crow and Little Crow. It took about 2 1/2 hours. I would recommend parking your car at the parking area at the end of O Toole road and then walking downhill 1.4 miles to the little crow trailhead. The little crow trail head sign is easily missed. It is on Hurricane road, 0.2 miles from the beginning of O Toole Road. It is a little red marker about 2 feet off the ground. Once you are on the trail, it is a great trail with beautiful views. If you go the opposite way (that is how we went). Coming down Little Crow is tougher and walking 1.4 miles uphill sucks after you already hiked 2 mountains.

This is a great hike and it's fairly easy. I went with my seven year old daughter. It took about 20 minutes to get to the summit of Big Crow. We then did the Little Crow trail from there. Great views from both mountains. High Peaks in every direction. Over 3.5 miles on the trails (some side excursions) and appx 3 hour round trip including breaks.

We were unfortunate to attempt this 03/4/17 when it was a sheet of ice. Not to mention we were already out hiking that morning for 2 hrs in ZERO degree weather and 15mile an hour winds. whomp whomp, Without Crampons we didn't get too far. Would love to do it again when we aren't exhausted and better prepared not to mention, a tad warmer lol.

This is a great, quick hike with a big payoff. It's a good place to have a picnic with young family or just a quick cardio heart check.
