My absolute favorite! A really nice hike with a lot of challenges, twists, and turns, but very exciting. I had an old map and description which threw me off a bit (I didn't know it had been redone so I was looking for the wrong things), but the trail itself was very well marked. Some steep rocky areas were a bit scary but definitely doable. Eagle Rock itself was breathtaking. I would love to go back again!

It was very muddy, but has been raining a lot recently, it was a great trail, but online it says it is 3.2 miles, but it has been recently redone and is now 4.6 miles. Worth it though :)

Nice trail. A little muddy after rain but worth it.

Great view at the top, take the 20 extra minutes to go to Eagle point, well worth it. Muddy right now but the bugs are not too bad.

Decided to hike on a rainy afternoon despite low cloud cover. Had a beautiful hike nonetheless and the view, if windy, was glorious.

I did the "Round the Pond" trail to the "Gnome Stairs" trail. It's an easy couple miles (maybe even less). There are beavers in the pond, and the "Gnome Stairs" were pretty cool (man made stairs leading down into Wheeler Brook). The trail ends at a "Trail End" sign. Just follow the blue dots.

Great hike. Weather was great..
Got to be careful, the trail markings are missing at approximately 15 mins in at a hair pin turn in the trail thus easy to miss. Also on the rock section, the marking are mostly worn off.
