super fun! beautiful views & awesome scenery on the way up. we went while it was lightly snowing & 30 degrees, so it was a tad icy. we took our dog and he loved it! can’t wait to hike it in the spring or summer!

Great work out and nice walk in the fern filled woods on the long trail before getting on the loop.

Great short hike to do behind the Inn at Long Trail. Easy to do this as an out-and-back to the overlook, or you can walk part of the AT and make it a longer loop trail. Trail is really well marked. Parking is across the street from the trail head. Be careful crossing Rt. 4!

For a short trail this was really gnarly and provided many a splendid view. There are spots on the trail have stairs and wooden planks to walk on but there are also spots with you are walking on nothing but uneven rocks and other spots where you are on nothing but tree roots. I loved this short hike.

This is one of my favorite quick hikes around Rutland. Great views for not too much work.

The pleasant view from the peak was negated by the hordes of people on the trail...some of whom were smoking weed and blasting a boom box while hiking...numerous people talking on their cell phones as well. Did meet some nice folks on the peak to enjoy the sunny day with though

Great hike and fun for the pup. Views were great. Pint of Guinness at The Long Trail Pub was a perfect ending to the day

We hiked this trail on an overcast day. The weather wasn't too cold just the trail was very muddy in spots and there was snow covering the boards used in the trail. The trail was easy to follow with a lot of ups and downs. The view from the Overlook was covered in fog/overcast.
