Nice trail with the exception of broken glass particularly at the top. Not sure why kids can't take beer cans rather than bottles. Enjoyable and an easy hike even for a 14 yr old dog.

Beautiful Intersecting Trails but NOT 4.7 miles.. 2 miles at most... so that was the only disappointment

Not too challenging of a hike, but enough to get your heart pumping. great view at the top.

Just watch out for black snakes, ended up practically on top of one sunning itself on the trail and he was NOT happy.

Would definitely hike again.

Easy, quick up and down, trails were clean and clearly marked. This trail is great for families with a lot of nice big rocks to stop and rest at. Or great for a quick trail run. I would say it is on the easy side of moderate.

Great view cool caves

Quick trip up to the top, well marked nicely maintained, beautiful woods

Is it really possible to get 4.7 miles here as listed? Doing the math it looks like 2

Great trail with amazing views from Rattlesnake Cliff! Highly recommend this trail.

Took the dog up. Some tricky spots but overall a nice up hill hike in. Slippery hike out but the view is worth it. Always fun to continue on to Pinnacle Mt via the Metacomet.

Beautiful scenery. Trail poorly maintained

Great hike with the kids. Saw a bear climb down from a tree and run up the hill in front of us!

a hidden gem! pretty steep parts, lots of rocks. it was challenging for a beginner like myself but doable. The view at the end was totally worth the hike up. beautiful. also the entrance is a little hidden, basically on the side of the main road.

Trails not very well marked. Not sure if I was on the white or blue trail.

Good hike. Tricky in certain parts due to rocky terrain you have to climb over and around. And because of the rocky terrain, it can be easy to lose the trail since it's not always a clear path through the woods. All in all, though, I'd do it again.

Beautiful grassy trails on the grounds of the Hillstead Museum, also a must see. Grounds are open to the public year round. Park at the museum. Lots of birds and wildflowers.

Well marked trail, few challenge areas.

Great view from the summit! Make sure to leave a note in the journal up there.
