A more challenging, moderate hike. The first portion is very steep, then it escalates into more technical footing, rock walking, and stream crossing. An interesting and beautiful hike. Give yourself a little more time to complete this than you may have thought for 2.8 miles.

Wonderful trail from base of Stowe to upper ski runs. Would rate it more challenging than moderate. Narrow trail through the woods and crossing water several times on the way up - much nicer than climbing a ski slope. Continuing up the ski trails and connect to the Long Trail. Beautiful views along the ridge in both directions. Great hike.

This hike is rated moderate, unfortunately I could find no definition. Given that most of the "trail" is a stream bed with lots of rocks and boulders that is not my definition of moderate. Especially when the last 1/2 mile is up the beginning of a downhill ski run which has a very steep pitch naturally. The hike is beautiful nonetheless with streams along nearly the whole way. After the trail ends you can turn right and follow the toll road for about 1/4 mile to the summit. Then make sure you head down another 1/4 mile path to right of visitors center so you can get full view looking west to Lake Champlain and beyond. The views east and west from the top or near top of this hike make the trip very worthwhile. Did this hike October 13, 2017.

Definitely more challenging than I anticipated, but enjoyed it either way.

Had an absolute ball hiking this trail Saturday, May 27. The ascent was truly a moderate challenge, about an hour up keeping a good pace. And what a marvelous view from the top! Your hard work is well rewarded on this one. RECOMMENDED.

Fun and challenging trail. Quite steep in places. Could be marked a little better in spots.

It's a nice hike up to the ski resort from Smugglers Notch State Park camping sites. Not too difficult and was a great start to our day hike.
