I'm more bruise than person at this point because the trail is so icy and pretty much unused! There's a good inch or so of both ice and snow along the entire trail, more so once you start getting to the steep bits. I definitely recommend shoes with grip and warm gear!

It seemed like the never ending trail! I loved the view of Pinnacle at the top. Be sure to be prepared to scale some large and jagged rocks the closer to the top you get

Did this for the first time on 8/19. Pretty forest with brook(s) running along most of the trail to the summit. A couple small pools of water on the way too. The trail starts to incline pretty quickly .
The trail is rocky with a lot of moisture . Proper foot wear a must . I found hiking poles very helpful on this trail . The last mile is a pretty steep incline that is all rock . If your new or you are on your first few hikes this is not the one to start with . If you are eager for a challenge and have a few more hikes under your belt go for it . I will do it again. Worth the trip .

The hike up and down Mount Worchester is not 2.2 miles, it is 3.8 miles each way and we found it quite technically difficult. Beautiful views and forest but muddy trail and definitely rock scrambling that feels a little unsafe at times.

It's a bit early yet for this trail. We stopped shy of the summit when the ice got a little too much for safe passage. Parts of the lower trail are still very wet but passable. We will definitely be back!

New favorite hike! Starts out easy in a primarily deciduous forest (going back for foliage in a few weeks!) and then the second mile hits...steep with lots of rock climbing, a great challenge! The view at the summit was AMAZING! Full 360 of the White Mountains to the east, the Green Mountains to the West. We brought our 7 year-old lab and she did great climbing some difficult steep rock sections but was very winded at the top. We brought plenty of water for her. On the way up we passed several other dog owners going down the mountain who said their dogs couldn't make it up the rocks. Not a good hike for older dogs.
