Long climb to the top but worth it for the view. Challenging but the kids (12 and 7) kept up. Plenty to look at along the way to take a few breaks here and there.

One of the first hikes I did in VT. The falls were fun to explore and great view of Lake Dunmore at the top!

In parts challenging for beginners, but the view from Rattlesnake vista was totally worth it. We went during Fall and it was incredible. Our dogs went along and were a little frustrated by having to be kept on leash the whole way.

The trail would be challenging for a beginner, but turned out to be a perfect moderate difficulty trail. Follow the signs for vista off of rattlesnake trail for a beautiful view of Lake Dunmore and Silver Lake. Great hike!

Good day hike - challenging enough with a pay-off at the top. As of Labor Day weekend, 2017, there seems to be a series of new switchbacks near the top that join with the ridge trail. These new switchbacks are not on the map.
