Challenging! Have to put this as one of my favorites. The "rock climbing" at the top is the last stretch to one of the most amazing views :)

Tough little trail. Highly recommend if you want a lung burner. Harder than Camels Hump in my opinion.

I hiked Hunger Mountain in early spring and was the only person on the trail. The top was still frozen and getting to the summit was a bit tricky. Lots of ice. On the way down a gentleman near the trailhead told me it stays frozen until mid May. Definitely one of the more challenging hikes I've ever done but worth it.

Always a favorite but can be challenging for sure!

Excellent solstice hike! I wore microspikes almost the whole time. Trail was packed down pretty well but it was very icy. A moderately challenging hike despite the short length. Always a favorite.

Steep hike, but the views are worth the sore legs!

great hike, but definitely challenging for non-hikers or those who aren't in great shape. this could take you an hour or it could take you five

Completed this today on 11/6/16 in shorts and sneakers. Top half is a sheet of ice on wet rock and leaves (death) with a steam running down it. We made it but definitely the most difficult hike we have done in a while. Still giving it five stars even though there was a foot of snow at the top and no view. Feel like a king when you finish.

Tuff hike from the start. Nice quick workout with beautiful views from the summit. Can't wait to snow shoe this trail.

This trail is very rocky and challenging, especially the last couple of tenths of mile. It was dry when I hiked it, and if it's wet it could be difficult and dangerous. If you're older (I'm 55 and in good shape) it will be a cardiac challenge on the way up and an orthopedic challenge on the way down. Trekking poles will take some stress off the knees. The view at the top is 5 star, but the hike in and out is not very interesting.

Great view! Great Hike!
