Great hike as of 2/21/21. Snow was packed and I was fine with waterproof boots and microspikes. The Duxbury Window lookout is actually only about 1.6 miles into this trail, as park signage will tell you. I was going to go further along the trail but the snow got a lot more fluffy so I turned back. Beautiful lookout!

A great hike: not too long, some steep parts, sweet brooks, and a really lovely view. Snow was packed and micro spikes did the job.

Started at the Bolton LT S trailhead. Nice hike through some pastures and then took to the road for a bit to then start my ascent to the window. Nice hike with some river/stream crossings and I great waterfall. Bench at the window to relax.

Good hike - unclear where the "window" is here but a tiny window slightly off trail that is Southern facing that was pretty. Nice moderate hike in November.

wonderful trail, not terrible mud(for Vermont). I will say this trail says 5.1 on the app but it is actually 1.8 to the window and obviously 1.8 back. you can turn it into a 5.1 by following the long trail but the window trail itself is not that long.

Beautiful day! The trail was a little muddy at the bottom but got better as we climbed. The waterfall was beautiful and my dog enjoyed a dip in the stream by the bridge. As we passed the chair it got a little confusing - we found ourselves on the edge of a cliff, but then realized we had missed the climb up the rooty section. Not sure if my older dog could be successful

After reading other reviews of this trail I decided to only hike to the Duxbury Window view point. I found the trail to be on the easy side of moderate with a few steeper sections here and there. The mud was at about a 1.5 out of 5 (Vermont standards) and there was a dusting of snow near the window. The views from the outlooks were alright. As you can see from the photos they are mostly views of the highway. The cascades on the other hand were beautiful.

The trail started off fairly easy but a steady climb. The waterfall is 1.1 miles in and we saw people using that as an out and back “kiddie hike”. There is a bench at the first view which is just I-89 and the mountains beyond. The trail starts to climb more steeply and from the 2 mile point on it is very steep. Duxbury Window is the only clear view of Camel’s Hump. It isn’t marked but that is it. It is at roughly 2.5 miles. The route in All Trails actually takes you 3.3 miles out to Bamforth Shelter. We enjoyed the hike but keep that in mind and there’s lots of climbing involved.

Moderate hike up past a waterfall to a cut log bench presumably viewing Duxbury Window which is a nice view of the interstate, Bone Mountain and Stinson. We continued up to a craggy harder climb about a mile further in and were rewarded with another opening viewing Camel’s Hump peak. Should have stopped there but continued on to Bamforth Ridge campsite for a rest and then turned around to head back down. It was close to 6 miles total and very nicely shaded on a hot July day.
