Description
Waypoints (6)

This popular loop uses the Long Path (turquoise) from Rte 75 to ascend two mountains which feature a leanto shelter and a climbable fire tower. Highlights include fern groves, mild to moderate paths, wildlife, a lake, and a 360 degree view from the refurbished Jackie Mountain Fire Tower. Two notes: first, the unmarked road junction waypoint (see map) is clearly visible and well traveled, second, the Long Path entry point is about 30 yards down from the main parking area and not very obvious. Parking limited on weekends.

Great views, not too challenging though there are a couple spots where it’s easy to lose the trail. Most of the blazes are pretty good. Dog can do this easily, lots of room to pass when there are other people, certainly not lonely but not crowded either.

Great trail- markers easy to follow for most of it. Good cell service if you need to check the map. Peaceful and enjoyable.

Crampons would be helpful. Snow covers 100% of the last mile aNd 50% of the first mild

For the most part the trail was moderate, considering the packed snow, would recommend microscopes on incline up to Jackie otherwise was a pretty pleasant hike.

Steady incline for the first mile and then it has a few peaks and declines. Pretty well marked and not crowded

Well trafficked even now. There are some rocks that have ice that is not very visible but as long as you stay vigilante you should be fine.

This trail was well marked and easy to follow... A few points were unmarked but the trail was well traveled so you don’t go off trail! Wish it wasn’t foggy as we couldn’t enjoy the views at the mountain top and fire tower! Trail is great for dogs even small ones

Solid trail, not a lot of trees down. Went early enough there was no one else at the fire tower, not remarkable but not a bad spot
