This trail is heavily trafficked with lots of bugs. it's a hard trail. dog friendly with a spring and a couple of places to stop. at the top the view isn't much unless you can climb the firetower which is currently closed due to the virus.

Moderate level trail for a satisfying 6 mile in and out hike. If you want to add on some more milage continue on the blue trail past the Fire Tower. Terrain is wet in certain parts and a bit rocky but the rocks are somewhat level and held in dirt so it is not loose, all very manageable. Descent was very easy for me, even ran some of it. Have not found the trail to be crowded, saw around three groups of two people each the last couple times I have gone.

About half an hour of hiking through slippery snow at the top in mid-April. Not much of a payoff at the top without going up the fire tower (which is closed due to COVID) but a good workout!

Nice trail in good condition, though a bit wet and muddy with snow melt in spots today. The fire tower was closed, but still a nice destination. There is a spring along the way, and a shelter and outhouse near the tower. One snow covered area in shade that was a bit slick, but easy to navigate overall. Definitely rocky, so be prepared. Suggest going early to avoid crowds and get a spot near the trailhead, otherwise you'll need to park in the angler parking down the road.

My wife and I enjoyed the Mount Tremper hike from Old Route 28 with 4 of our kids yesterday. The trail was a great way to spend the beautiful sunny day with the whole fam-damily. The spring near the Baldwin Memorial lean-to was a refreshing stop. We also had the pleasure of talking with the grandson of the last fire warden that worked the tower, in fact the person honored by the Baldwin memorial lean-to. He was there with his wife and tiny baby. Wow, what a great day!

Had a great time hiking this one at the end of the winter season. The trail was in great shape, save for two stretches where ice covered the whole trail. If you have spikes then you’re good to go. My fiancé and I didn’t but had sturdy hiking shoes and we managed fine. We stuck to the sides and cut through the woods a few times to avoid the sketchiest parts. Many others on the trails also didn’t have spikes. The tower was open and offered up awesome views. Did the whole thing in about 3:30. According to my GPS it was 6.7 miles total from the main parking lot

Thin layer of snow most of the way up the trail with times of icy sections Microspikes recommended but saw plenty of folks without them making their way okay. Really more of a "moderate" hike with steady climbs the whole way. Nice views from the top.

Crampons would’ve been good for about 200 feet but it was doable without. Clouds at top, otherwise perfect
