definitely easy to moderate hike, starts out rocky then turns to trail, slow incline all the way, marked well. Satisfying view. Not a frequent hiker, took us 40min a mile going up, coming back less than 30 min/mi.

Definitely a very poorly marked trail as it jumps through pieces of other poorly marked trails. There is spotty use of pink tags on trees and a couple cairns others have made to help. You can either take the trail on the right or the left from the parking lot. If you go to the right up around the Reservoir, plan to depend on your AllTrails app/GPS to guide you. But if you go up the left and stick to the snowmobile trail it's a straight shot and the Redmond's Overlook spur is to your right just before you get to the old swinging gate. This part is well marked with red diamonds. Beautiful overlook of Corinth and the VT mountains!

A nice place but would agree that it’s not well mapped or marked. Went in fully aware after reading the reviews (and fairly experienced) and still got turned around a few times. Ended up taking a totally different path to beaver pond ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ so I actually can’t review the view! Lovely day, lovely reservoirs. Mosquitoes are no joke already, so come prepared.

Great trail but I’d suggest using the app so you don’t get off course. Not a lot of traffic so easy to get lost. Great view and spot to enjoy lunch. Awesome trail for dogs.

Nice walk, I would call it easy to mildly moderate. It is uphill much of the way, about 800 feet of vertical gain. We put in just over 4 miles taking the main trail to Wilson Pass to the overlook and looping back down around the reservoir. There are a lot of intersecting snowmobile and four-wheeler trails, so you can take a wrong turn if not watching the markers. Trail was hard packed snow and ice at the bottom, about a foot of powder at the top.

Nice trail with a great view. The trail is actually a dirt road for the most part. They are working on making new trails and the creeks and reservoir are nice. The view from the top is the highlight of the hike. Trail was mostly dry.

The view was worth the hike...however the previous reviews stating it's not well labeled are correct. our first mile was an uphill walk on a "snowmobile" trail. we then felt lost as we hit a "no trespassing" sign. when we turned around to head back down we did notice a red marker and lovely pile of rocks marking a trail. we followed a more narrow/overgrown path for about 3/4 of a mile to reach the top....and the fall views where amazing! then we just retraced our steps back to the start. there where a few labeled paths off the snowmobile trail, but no map at the start as to where they go!!

Very nice hike. Getting to the top of Redmond Outlook is very rewarding. Also a lot of geocaches. You could spend a full day here!

Trails not marked well. We took the wrong trail to start with and ended up adding quite a bit of time to our hike.

This is a new trail going from the upper Corinth Reservoir to Redmond's Overlook. From the overlook you look east toward Corinth and the Hudson River. On a clear day you can see the Green Mountains of Vermont in the distance. You can return down the same path you climbed up on (walking down on the other side of the reservoir) extending the hike to apx. 4 mikes or return on the logging road as shown on this route. Generally a moderate walk across a few streams with stepping stone or log bridges (nothing too difficult). Hiking poles are helpful for some of the steeper sections and switchbacks. In the winter the trail can be walked with snowshoes.
