Amazing view from the top. A little steep in a few spots but worth the trip.

This is a steeper trail that is pretty rocky throughout. There are some flatter parts, but they are followed by a good incline. The top is a great place to watch the sunrise and is a larger summit. As a new hiker, I would recommend this trail to someone looking for a challenge and a great summit.

One of my favorites. Especially the rock scramble towards the top! Overall, this hike is definitely a good challenge with beautiful views.

Beautiful hike! It’s pretty intense with a lot of difficult rocky scramble closer to the top. The view is gorgeous. Lots of cool mushrooms! The conditions were good - a little muddy in places but not a lot of bugs and a great breeze at the top.

Really fun hike! Harder than expected, seems like it’s all elevation gain. And the scramble at the end was very cool. Which led to an amazing summit!! If you’ve done Camel’s Hump (my favorite hike in VT), I think this was tougher. 3 1/2 hours round trip which included a long summit stay. Hit trail at 7 AM and saw no one all the way up. Seemed to fill up around 9 or 10. Saw a lot of families on the way down.

Great trail and was a fun hike to do. The trail wasn’t well marked and looked like it hadn’t been taken care off in a little while. If you were to do it as a sunrise hike, make sure you really pay attention to the trail and bring flashlights. Due to its poor markings it was hard to tell which parts were the actual trail. All in all it was fun would do again.

Favorite trail in VT! I went on a rainy day, and it was perfect—practically had it to ourselves. There’s plenty of tree coverage until the scramble at the top. Obviously, it was muddy and wet since raining but didn’t even break out the poles on the run down because the trail descent is staggered well.

My favorite hike in Vermont. Incredible 360 degree view up top. Can’t wait to do it again.

6/28/2020-Great hike! Took us 3 hours round trip. The bugs weren’t bad and it wasn’t too crowded. I suggest getting an early start to avoid crowds. Towards the top gets quite rocky and is a bit slippery on the way down. Not too challenging with good hiking boots.

Big elevation change in short distance but well worth the effort. Panoramic 360 degree views at the top.

Gorgeous views! Beautiful hike, just buggy near and at summit. Tricky for dog at some points, but able to get around first steep scramble. Well maintained and marked, some signs could use a polish. A fantastic day!
