Hiked the Longer Ridge Trail up and the Fire tower trail down. Not too buggy, took about 11/2 hrs to hike up and an hour down. Beautiful view at the top from the Fire tower. Can easily be hiked with dogs.

We throughly enjoyed this hike with our dog, Dodger. We parked in the State Park, not the trail head on the app (it was a private residence). The trail was well blazed. The VT State Park service has done an excellent job maintaining this trail. Our 23 lb dog needed a lift or two up and down the ladders on this loop trail. Fortunately he's not too heavy. This is early spring and there weren't too many insect. I'm sure there are many more insects later in the season because of all the moisture along this trail. Dress appropriately and bring insect repellent.

I have hiked this trail several times as a child and now I enjoy taking my sons to Elmore Mountain. Afterward the hike we go to the lake to cool off.

Beautiful views from the top. If you're afraid of heights and climbing, I do not suggest this as you have to climb up a fire tower. A few teasers along to way. At one point you're climbing boulders on the 1.2 trail. The 2.2 trail is a longer trail but a much better path, less views on the way up. We hiked up the 1.2 came down the 2.2. Mostly shade, lots of ticks. It's a few bucks to get in and parking is kind of a pain.

Nice afternoon hike to take in some views on the longest day of the year. Working on getting my hiking legs back under me and this hike fit the bill. Firetower trail on the way up was well trodden and wide, with only the last 0.2 mile being strenuous. Took the Ridge trail back (sign says 2.2 miles to "parking" - it's more like 2.5 back to the road, then the extra 0.3 to parking). Ridge trail was gentle with a few smaller steep sections. All in all a great hike!

Nice hike, takes just a few hours. Beautiful views from the fire tower at the top. In the past few years this has been made into a loop trail, not sure how many people know.
