A relatively easy hike that is fairly level for the first 2 miles and then slowly begins to climb. It maintains a moderate grade until the last .3 where some steep sections are encountered but nothing too difficult and no challenging scrambles. Demanding in the springtime from the melting snow, mud and leftover snow - very rocky, lots of mud and washed out areas of the trail. The summit is wide open and the views are great.

Pretty easy climb with amazing payoff at the summit. Fire tower offers 360 view.

Well worth it! Our young teenagers and dog had a great time on this climb. It is on the harder end of Moderate and while we saw some small children at the summit we felt this would be challenging for youth hikers. Mud in a few spots but mostly easy to navigate around. Steep as mentioned in other reviews during the final leg. Views are fantastic with 360 large open slopes to enjoy. A recently renovated fire tower is also open. A great Adirondack experience.

Great long hike! First 2 miles are a breeze and then the last mile or so is steep. It's not HARD but it is steep and will take some extra effort. Great dog friendly trail. My pup and I were both able to go to the top of the fire tower for an amazing view. It was a muddy trail, lots of slipping on rocks on the way down. Took me about 2 1/2 hours and my phone tracked 6.6 miles.

The last mile of the trail can be a little tricky (it had just rained) but the view from the top is well worth it!

Moderate for whom? Not for this fairly fit 21O lb, 65 year old. The last half mile was hard going up and down. Would I ldo it again? You bet! The top revealed astounding views in jewel like colors. I wish I had brought a walking stick.

Wow! This hike is worth it! The trail is beautiful, but challenging. The last mile (like others said) very rapidly inclines on scrambling rock, but it makes the hike very fun! The views at the top are breathtaking with an almost 360 degree view of all the adirondack mountains! This mountain is very popular and we encountered a lot of other hikers, but there is a lot of room at the top so you don't feel so crowded. I will definitely be doing this hike again, as it is fun and the views are like no other!

Moderate to easy hike. Had the baby in the backpack and the trail was a bit slick which made some parts a challenge. The view was amazing! Definitely worth the hike. Bring bug spray!

Fun afternoon hike on July 20th. Still very buggy, and a bit muddy as previous posters have noted. But the breeze at the summit was lovely to cool us off and keep the bugs away! Great views of the surrounding lakes and peaks from the rocky summit and the fire tower.
