Perfect day hike. In late May the way is very muddy & the black flies are in full force but the air is pleasant. The Summit includes a very steep, high fire tower that must be climbed to really see the views.

Ended up hiking this on the rain. A deluge actually on the way back. But all in all it was a nice hike in late April - snow still at the top. The first mile or so was not kind (just steep) but the rest of the hike wasn't bad.

Moderate incline the whole way without many great stopping points. Nice view from the fire tower at the top but extremely buggy in late May. Our group instantly turned back around and hit up the Long Trail Brewery for a well deserved beer

Went late march so some harder parts with leftover ice. Snuck into some of the unused trails on other side in Mt Okemo. Most insane way to go sledding on your rain jacket definitely recommend doing this. Trails not too hard, but not many areas for good views. Only good view is at the top in the firetower and its well worth the trip.

Completed this in several feet of snow with my dog. Beautiful views from the Fire Tower up top. If you go in early March, you won't see a soul!

This trail is in my hometown and I've hiked it several times in different seasons...generally it's not a trail I go to when craving solitude, but the fire tower is a nice bonus! Gradual and meandering most of the way up, with a few steeper pitches.

Very nice trail, this one will challenge some who aren't used the the hills of Vermont. Met a few at the top who were pretty pooped. Not to rough a trail in general, very well groomed, and there was some trailwork that was obviously done in the past month.
The view from the fire tower was tremendous.
This isn't a trail you hike for solitude. I met quite a few people at the trail and at the top, and it wasn't even a weekend.
