Not as steep as I thought it would be, and earned this hike by first walking over to the Overlook and down to the bottom of the ice beds. On this hike just off the edge is a waterfall worth visiting, and the passage of through hikers on the Appalachian Trail. The summit rock garden, with rock cairns it's fun to explore. We enjoyed exploring the summit area and the triangle rock out of the far right edge was a great place to have lunch.

A quicker hike that lead to some of the best Green Mountain views. I'll be back!

This was a great hike, moderate is exactly right. Warning that you have to cross a stream - I'm sure it's usually manageable, but it had poured rain the day before so it was a legitimate rushing river. The water reached my upper thighs and I am almost 6' tall! Be prepared and be careful, the views at the top are worth it.

Nice moderate hike with good views, though the route I took is different from the map here. I parked at the White Rocks National Forest lot and went up the Keewaydin trail to its juncture with the AT/Long Trail, and followed up to the spur to the outlook that gives a nice vantage point to the west. Also checked out the Greenleaf shelter and another side spur that gives views to the northeast, and the hike amounted to 4.7 miles up and back. There hasn't been any trail work this spring, so there is some blowdown across the trail in places, but it is an easy-to-follow trail.

Great hike.
1. Plenty of parking with bathroom facilities.
2. Steep, rocky, beautiful trail. Nice soft level out about 3/4 way up with beautiful fauna.
3. Views similar to Baker Peak. Route 7 valley looking West.
