Very great hike with some great views of Mount Mansfield and Lake Champlain! Trail is also very dog friendly.

Pretty steep all the way up. The last mile or so splits. We took the more direct but steeper path. I felt like a legend scaling the rock walls above the tree line. Like another reviewer said, you'll earn the beautiful views!

I took Monroe (blue blazes) to the summit trail (white blazes). It was raining and 50 at the bottom and quite cold when you got higher. Trails were well marked and the terrain was mostly moderate. I wouldn't call this a difficult hike, with the exception of a could small sections of the last .3 miles, which required minor scrambling. Plan for 2 hours to the top or under an hour if you run it.

Really great trail especially if you're after an energetic hike. We got to the top in an hour twenty and then enjoyed the view with lunch. Just under an hour to get down and later in the day we are both feeling it!

Lots of dogs doing the trail and a few sub 10yr old kids.

Really nice hike, took us 2 hours to go up, 1:30 to go down and 30 min lunch break. Nice view at the top and nice trail

Great hike! It's 3.4 from the duxbury parking lot to top so it's 6.8 round trip. Trail is well marked and pretty busy during the summer and fall, not steep at all till the last .3 to the top. Plan on at least 4 hours.
