Beautiful hike through the woods and very shaded. The first part of the hike is all uphill and a great workout. Most people would be able to do this hike! The overlook is amazing and has great views. We did this hike over the Labor Day weekend 2020.

Great weather and not too busy for a Labor Day Saturday. Some areas were very rootty but as long as you keep your feet up you’ll be fine

HikingGreat!Muddy

Great trail - loved how the foliage changed over the course of the hike from a wetter mossy look to the fresh pines towards the top. The view was nice but as my dad put it, “it almost doesn’t matter where we end up because the process is so beautiful.” There is an entry fee ($4 adults $3 children) since it starts in a state park but it was worth it and good to support the parks.

The views from Deer Leap Overlook are beautiful, and this trail (as opposed to the Sherburne Pass trail) is more challenging, more secluded, and less crowded. That said, the top of Deer Leap Mountain is anticlimactic--no views, no sign on the peak. My hiking partner also generally likes hiking up and then back down, so he didn't like the fact that this trail had downhill sections on the way up, and vice versa.

Beautiful view from the top!! Definitely a steady incline the whole way up. Went in July. Lots of bugs, wear bug spray! Worth hike up though

We loved this hike and our dog did too! Pretty steep going up at times but also had some flat sections too. Nice and cool even in July as you’re under tree cover the whole way. Fun payoff midway through at the Overlook with great views of the surrounding peaks. Some bugs but not too bad. We parked in the Kent Pond boat ramp lot, crossed the road, and were on the trail in minutes. Great half day hike!

Great trail, the first half was very pleasant. Lots of flowers and running water sounds. The second half was definitely more of a hike but still lovely. There’s a fun bridge towards the end

Today was muddy but great. Spring is definitely coming in. It was good to have spikes at the top as it was slippery with snow and ice still. Not a hard core workout but a good loop. The lookout is nice!

We parked in the off season lot just past the trailhead, coming from Burlington. You can access the trail from this lot a few different ways. We started with micro spikes but went back and grabbed snowshoes. There is still a lot of snow, some was melting so you post hole without snowshoes. The view at the top was pretty but insanely windy and cold today. There are Trail Blazers but we somehow ended up getting a little off track a few times(see recording).
