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.

Should be rated hard as it is very challenging in my opinion. Great views along the way and make sure to hike all the way to Rattlesnake Cliff (ok after August 1st as Peregrine falcon restrictions lifted) for great view of Lake Dunmore and Green Mountain ranges. Stunning

Trail was pretty, but the rattlesnake trail wasn't very well maintained. The cliffs are closed between April 15th and August 1st, so there's no view of the lake
