I found this to be a magical experience.... Going up the forest feels typically New England, tall green trees, moss, mushrooms, fern... yes a lot of flies... It’s beautiful, in a Grimm brothers fairy tale fashion. But once you reach the top and begin going down on the other side it changes completely! Shorter pine trees, pine cones, sunny, no more flies (around sunset in Aug)... the rocks, flora, smells.. everything made me feel like I am on the Aegean coast (which for me is home). Loved it and highly recommend it.

We did this hike with our 9yo and 11yo kids, and they feel “tired, but good.” Good length, lunch on the vista, beautiful VT hike I would recommend to a friend.

Great hike, closer to 4 miles round trip. Moderate elevation gain plus relatively short mileage means most if not all of the trail up is pretty steep. Reviews that suggest it's too steep for a casual hiker are misguided--just bring water and rest if you need to. The views from the top are stunning.

A pretty nice trail if you don’t want to do a challenging hike but still get some decent views from the mountains. We were a pretty big group and it took us almost three hours to complete the whole trail. Definitely have some bug spray with you!

great hike. arrive at the cut off from the LT and see a cool "cairn garden" (A term I, think I coined, but maybe not). WAY nice view down to the White Rock below.. Looking DOWN on falcons below.

Took seven kids up this, it was hot day but we still did it. The view is awesome the hike was challenging in some spots but we all made it! Very rocky and roots! On the harder side but was still doable. I’m not sure how to get to the waterfall but would like to go back and find it one of these days!

Typical VT Hike. Uphill and Buggy. Stopped at the Waterfall and Shelter to add miles to hike. Lots of spots for the dogs to stop and get water.

I was not a fan of this trail. The trail itself was very buggy and rocky. It was very easy to loose your footing, which was just unpleasant at times. It was also kind of challenging. I ended up taking breaks, and on the way down, saw others taking breaks too. The trail was also not very scenic, so it wasn’t all that fun to look around. The saving grace was the view at the end. The view was breathtaking and there were multiple places to chill out up there and relax in the sun. However, I probably wouldn’t do it again because the hike itself wasn’t that pleasant.

This is a great relatively short hike that is mostly shaded. Some views through the trees on the way up that won’t be visible once the leaves are on the trees. Breathtaking view from the rocks at the top.

Trail had light snow and ice coverage. It was well traveled. Micro spikes helped but others in the group were just in hikers

Trail was broken. Fluffy snow. Took 3 hours RT. Pretty rock stackings dusted in snow, and summit look out.

Would be easier in warmer months, but between Christmas and New Year's it was pretty icy. Beautiful view at the top made it worth the scramble though.

Great trail. Very interesting. Beautiful overlook at the top. Cool cairn garden. I’d say on the easy end of moderate. Bring a lunch to the overlook!

Steady ascent with varied footing. Boulder scrabbles, gnarly roots, pine footpaths, laid stone steps. Deciduous forest at the bottom changing to spruces and pines higher up. The vista(s) are beautiful, making the hike a worthwhile one. Follow the blue blazes west near the cairn graveyard, and when you get to the vista be sure to go left as far as you can, then go right as far as you can. The northern vista gives you a view to the airport and city of Rutland. South down the valley. We liked the northern one because you can dangle your legs over the cliff and lay back against a comfy seat back of stone. We had lunch there. You can see over into the Adirondacks, so I disagree with those who say the vista is not good. . 1 mosquito or 2, no bugs on this 62 degree day. Not much mud, we went south down the AT a bit, but backtracked and decided to go back and do the ice boulders short hike instead. Both combined are about 7 miles. White faced hornets were buzzing us during lunch, beware if you are allergic.
