Used Cross River Trail (CRT) up and down, well marked with blue color; nice view at the top, good exercise. Ice spikes not needed.

I parked on bald top road and went up the cross riv... trail (blue blazes, well marked, moderate, very nice trail. 2.43 Miles to summit. Came down Ackerman trail, much shorter, about 1.5 Miles. Great on cloudy fall day but would be great in any season including winter I think.

Switchback trail, kind of long but worth the view!

This offers a long winding Trail with very few steep grades, so it’s a great beginner/intermediate trail. I hiked this on October 1, 2017 and the trail was covered with leaves which was the biggest challenge on the way down.

Lovely, quiet hike. We didn't see anyone else anywhere along the path. Steady climb up the 1000ft elevation. Summit opens up to grassy meadow with long-range views. Great spot for a picnic. 7yo made the hike with few difficulties.

Nice hike, we took our dog she loved it. Many other ppl also had dogs in the trail. The firsts half is gradual and the second half is a bit harder and steeper. Nice view at the top!
