Nice easy hike with a pretty good view. Would probably be a nice place to watch a sunset. Follow the yellow arrows and bring your bug spray. Seriously, bring your bug spray.

Easy hike, kid friendly. I hiked for the first time at the end of winter and thought I got lost a few times. Might be easuer ti navigate in the summer without the snowmobile trail packed down.

Nice trail through the woods with a great overlook of lake Champlain and the Adirondacks in the distance. The trail is rooty so not great for running but a relatively easy trail with some ups and downs adding to the variety and interest of the trail.

I tried running this on a rainy day in May and it was a complete mud bath. Impassable without going through ankle-deep puddles-verging-on-ponds. The surrounding woods are beautiful, and there are some well-made bridges over the more permanent streams. This is probably a very pleasant area on dry days, but it certainly doesn't drain well.

Wonderful trail. Great view. Want to go down Sucker Brook, ran out of time. Little muddy but real easy to follow.

Great Sunday afternoon hike. Good snow pack, trail easily walked with crampons and poles, following easy hills to the Overlook. View is wonderful for low elevation. Will return in Spring.

Lovely, well marked trail. Beautiful views from the overlook, even though it’s past peak foliage.

This hike is great. It's in the woods. It's up and down hill a lot. It was great for kids. Plenty to see and the view? Well the view at the overlook can't be put into words. The best view in VT...

A short hike great for kids!..you can make it longer if you hike down to Sucker Brook. you will need to turn around and come back,or park a car on both sides. Easy fun .
