Very short (0.4 each way) but enjoyable trail through woods and then up onto a rocky outcrop with a nice view. Great hike for kids - streams to enjoy, woods and a very fun rock scrammble with a rope to help you up. The views are great for such a short hike.

This was a pleasantly surprising hike. During the time we went we saw just one other person. If you want something thats medium difficulty then do the rock scramble at the top rather than directly continuing onto the Echo Pond. This was a fun part and added about 30 mins to the hike. Great view from the top of cobble hill after climbing up those rocks.

In regards to distance walking, it was easy. The biggest challenge of this trail was climbing up Cobble Hill with 6 and 10 yr. old girls. The hill is steep and can be a dangerous fall. However, done with caution, it is fun and thrilling. The view up top is awesome and worth the climb.

Loved the hike! We took the difficult way up and the easier way down . Unfortunately it was foggy so we couldn't enjoy all the views. It took about an hour and 1/2. Great for my first hike in the Adirondacks!

This hike was great! We took the easy way up and down and it took us only 2hrs with a break on the summit. For such a short hike, it still had some amazing views. Highly recommended!

Great view. If it's icy do not go the steep route!

For the distance - and two SC visitors - this was a great hike and view!

The trailhead and parking are located at the Northwoods School.

We smartly rented spikes from the bike shop and it made the icy conditions so much more manageable.

Will definitely bring family next time!

This was a nice walk. The steep trail was a little more then I expected but still very fun and doable. Beautiful view at top. Lovely lake views on return.
