Solid hike. Pretty mellow until you hit the ski trails, then the steeps begin. Final half mile is seriously steep; hands necessary up and down. Cool views. Easier summit than Equinox.

This is my first year hiking. I set out on this trail at 4:30pm on May 14th. Weather at trail head was 46 degree with a over cast. However I want to climb the peak. I was moving at about 900 steps pre ten minutes. Trail was well marked, one of the best I've seen this year. However it was muddy and super wet. About half way up there was snow, and it gets steep in spots. Like crawling steep only in spots do to all the rain and snow the trail was a brook. I see now why the green mountain clubs state trail closed until Morial day. However I don't listen and did it anyway. Weather changed quick at top of Mountain. Due to wet feet I walked service road back to bottom. I didn't like that it's a ski and cell phone gig. But it was nice and the closes I've been to 4000 feet yet. So much over cast I could get good picture. Deer leap loop is better hike for view !! Be well and see you on the trails, namaste!!
