Difficult but enjoyable hike. Last .2 miles to summit is basically rock climbing! No warm up, from car you start up hill and it is that for about 2 miles. Recommend the hike but be ready for a challenge!

Quite the workout. Steady uphill climb that seems to never end. Not quite as vertical as Hell Brook, but a much longer climb. This trail has a bit of everything; rough terrain, scrambles(as you close in on the summit), nice little waterfall and beautiful vistas. All in all, a challenging day on the mountain.

I climbed the mountain via the Middlesex trail and loved it. The distance was a little longer but well worth the trouble. Check out my full write up along with pictures and directions.

Shorter than Camels Hump but way rockier. A little difficult with dogs.

Tough climb. I think it was 2.2 up and 2.2 down so we may have actually taken a different trail but did have small waterfall and ended at top of mt hunger and started close to Waterbury.. Good views. Rock scrambling serious!

View was spectacular. The cliffs were a challenge.

Intense but spectacular! Not much reprieve from an uphill incline but a wonderful way to spend the day with teenage daughters!

The climb begins right off the parking area, no traverse or warm up, just up and away. The trail is fairly steep overall and most rocky sections have stepped stones for good footing. The Waterbury Trail is well maintained and marked. While there are no vistas to speak of on the route up, the views from the top are great. A fun day hike for anyone looking for some exercise.
