Great hike with good views. It gets very steep at some points. During the descent it was very rocky and slippery at certain areas. For a moderate experienced hiker it will take 5-6 hrs to complete the entire trail along with snack breaks.

Do this hike and then go have lunch at the Noonmark Diner (highly recommend the sticky buns and pie!) in terms of the hike, as others have noted it was fairly steep up to the summit, but the views made it all worthwhile (posted some pictures). We did the loop and it was fairly steep, rocky and slippery on the descent. We are reasonably fit and it took us about 2.5 hours of actual hiking time and about 4 hours total including snack and water breaks.

I consider this an easy-moderate hike, for an experienced hiker. There's plenty of places to stop along the way and take in the view. I think this mountain gets overlooked because it's not a 46er. The view from Noonmark exceeded my expectations. Some of the high peaks I have hiked, don't come close to the view from Noonmark.

Tough from 73 to the Trail junction. Very tough from the trail junction to the Summit, but well worth the view. I hiked from 73 to the Boquet leanto and slept overnight. Good tenting area. I met a nice girl named Rachel who appeared to just be hanging out at the lean to for a few days. The hike from the leanto back to the trail junction is easy. I was on the Summit by noon and back in the car on 73 by 3. Highly recommend for most people.

Great hike with spectacular views of the great range. Trailhead starts at the 2nd left from the parking lot. Some steep parts that become challenging after it rains (bring trwkking poles then).

Went many times because of the amazing views, especially in the color season! Tried both options: North path to the top ( best view points) and going down the same way; the other option is to make a loop toward Round Mountain (not much view points on the way back).

Love this trail. More tough at the beginning because of the steepness but the final results bring so much happiness. Gorgeous

Very nice trail! Was very muddy but so much fun. Views are beautiful! Rates as intermediate, but if you have ankle problems going down will be much harder. Will go back for sure!

Summitted in near perfect early spring weather. Noonmark isnt a high peak but in my opinion the views are in comparison quite impressive. The bald summit affords awesome 360 degree views of the great range, giant/rocky peak ridge, and the dix range. Most of the snow and ice was melted however above 3000ft, i did put on my micro spikes a couple times. Super accessible, relatively gut-wretch free, with a solid reward at summit. Great hike!!

Hiked Noonmark about a week ago. Brought spikes but that really wasn't enough. Every step was a mystery if my entire leg was going to go into the deep snow and under that was a lot of water running. If I had snowshoes that may have made things a little easier. Probably very wet up there now since it's been such nice weather. Enjoy! :)

This hike was an intense one due to the ice. You really had to take your time due to the ice while ascending and descending. There were people that turned around due to the ice. For this hike I used snowshoes at the base, then had to switch over to crampons and axe to help make the ascent and descent. You had to make sure that your footing was good before moving. The views from the summit were very nice of The Great Range, Whiteface, Dix, and Giant Mountain. I will definitely do this again when the weather is warmer.
