I entered by thw quaker lake trail head.nice jaunt through some beautiful country. Gets kinda steep at the top so be experienced if you have a heavier pack. other than that not to bad great views when the leaves are gone.

I parked at the trailhead at Quaker Lake and used this trail as my connection the the North Country Trail for a 2 day backpacking trip on the NCT. As the other reviewers have said the first mile is all up. not too bad but the last like 200 yards are no joke lol. But overall it was a nice trail with some nice views along the way.

Very steep! Not too good for backpacking with overnight bags.
