There was a lot of climbing involved, I would do it again but after going up once I was too tired, so I went home...do not recommend if it is your first time on a mountain bike trail.

Actually a newbie for hiking but this was a lot of fun and really loved the shade as we went in the afternoon

The trail is a beautiful place, but if you don't know the trail itself it is very easy to get lost. In a couple of case while I was hiking trail #49 I came upon a sign nailed to a tree that said 49, however, I had three options of which way to go. Once I made the wrong guess and we got lost. As I said the trail is great, but the labeling of the trails is horrible.

Beautiful terrain!

Most scenic trail I've ever seen!
Beautiful place for a wedding too!

Great hike on a nice day.. we took the whole loop. Directions are not always clear but once started this is a great trail. Views on top are beautiful but we did the boulder trail the day before and I personaly found these views more beautiful as UNH.

Easy hike with beautiful views

Short and to the point, too residential for my taste

Hiked this according to this map the other day, be careful there are many branches along the loop and some turns you have to take into areas that are overgrown. Looks like maybe 10 years ago? this area was much clearer but now there are very little views. Mostly blocked by small growth trees, even at the summit. It was a lovely woods setting, but little pay off for the gain in elevation. There were plenty of trails in the area, maybe there is a clearing along one of them, but not on loop marked here. Oh, and the name seems to be fitting, lots and lots of moose droppings along the trail.

Beautiful trail. Very easy to follow and navigate. Steep moderate is accurate as it is steep in some places. Seems to be either uphill or down throughout but plenty of gradual elevation gain, just not much flat terrain. I cannot express how beautiful it is in John Muir Woods. Enjoy!

A good trail with lake views. A campground is at the trailhead. Lots of families out on the beginning/end of the loop, but not many people on this trail once you get a few miles in. There is cell service on this trail so you can use this app and check maps. Get outside! :)

Great trail with a lot of single track options as you go.

This is a nice trail through the forest, especially during foliage season. The first 2/3 are very easy flat walking, the last third up to the summit is a bit steep and very rocky. The views are nice from the top but somewhat hindered by the trees below that have grown quite tall.
The trail is well marked, but the trail head is hard to find: in New Marlborough take North Road on the right of the church until you turn left onto Old North Road and find the parking lot and trail head 100 yards down the road.
