Keewaydin is a beautiful trail we love to hike and have done in the fall. Highly recommend for its solitude, awesome views and variety. However, the conditions earlier this week were not good. Earlier in the day the trail was slippery but do-able but by later in the day it was solid ice in places. I had winter hike boots and poles. The ice bed trail nearby was in great condition compared to keewaydin.

Many cars and many people using the area recently, clearly due to covid. Porta potty was extra gross. Hiked on a Sunday mid afternoon, overlook area was very crowded. Great views and foliage. Trail well marked and clean.

I would say trail was more difficult than moderate but far worth the hike up...yes up, up , up !! Very steep and heavy, rocky terrain. Make sure you have good hiking shoes/ boots. I personally hike with trekking poles and not sure I could have made it up or down without. I would definitely recommend this trail. Once you get to the top at the spiritual rock formations veer to the right and follow the blue tree markings to the overlook. Absolutely worth the extra 10 minutes.

Great hike. Steady uphill. I love the rocks and crags. There’s a pretty waterfall we caught on the way down. And of course the view was stellar!

Very pretty trail the whole way very picturesque. Good mix of steep incline and flatten grounds. Once at the white rock formations look for the us trail to the right. Follow that down and back up to what appears to be hidden cliffs. It will open up to a gorgeous cliff overlooking 5 towns. On way back be warned to not miss the turn off for the north trail. Wound up at picnic area which took us out of way almost a mile. Take a lunch break up at the cliffs. Hence why my time was so long. Got lost and had lunch. Should only take you 3 hours there and back.

HikingGreat!

Awesome hike! We start later in the day and the sun through the trees made it look so dreamy. Consistent uphill climb for most of it but don’t be deterred— the pay off was amazing at the top!! I would 100% recommend if you are in the area or even within an hour of it. A great half day hike.

Good, unrelenting uphill for about 3/4 of the trail, then steep downhill to lookout. Most of trail is rocky and pretty. Outlook is an impressive view of Taconics from Dorset north to the end, as well as many central Greens. Overlook is dramatic and precipitous.

Great trail. When you get to the lookout at the top make sure to make your way to the edge for the best views. People were leaving without seeing the good views due to them being unaware.

Awesome afternoon hike, AMAZING view. It's a steady uphill climb on very well defined trails. Challenging part is that it's uphill nearly all the way, but that's hiking. DEFINITELY worth the trip!!!

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.
