really great for a fun, easy winter hike or snowshoe. parked at the fishery as I didn't want to take my car down the snow covered road with no area to turn around in for fear of getting stuck. Probably added a mile by walking to the trailhead. The trail head is difficult to find so keep that in mind, it is next to a large sign on the left side of the road. Really fun after a fresh snow, the top loop feels like Narnia.

very nice

great time with your family easy hiking great trails

great trail. there is a cave tunnel on the ledge facing craigs pond on the ledge if your on top of the summit and you look down towards the trail you come up on it is the ledge next to it on the left there is a wooden bence and it is in front of it slightly to the left look for the crack in the ledge you can shimmy down into it and walk threw a tunnel about 20 feet and come out the other side of the tunnel

easy hiking with beautiful views.

great trail

I would rate it easy-moderate. Like someone else said it is a mountain. But we love this trail. The views at the top are fantastic. My wife had open heart surgery 2 years ago. We are here for the season so we started our hiking by training on this trail. 4 months later I think she can hike just about anything.

Mead Mountain loop trail . A difficult hike with good rewards !

Flying solo with 4 kids and a dog. It isn’t a flat trail by any means but enjoyable. Like others have said it gets steeper towards the top but the views are amazing!

Favorite hike in region. Great for children. Nice views from top. We often stop to pick blueberries half-way. Nice open areas on top to have lunch.

Had a great time up the mountain. Cardio on the way up, Strength training on the way down. Love this hike in our back yard.

What an unexpectedly lovely trail with virtually no one there. A very relaxed hike- we walked down to the picnic spot along the river. Then continued around the loop and took the ledge trail where we happened upon a gorgeous overlook with lots of wild blueberries around. And then we enjoyed a nice wooded walk back down to the parking area. Didn’t go to the top of mead mountain as we were exhausted from a backpacking trip. Great place to let the dogs run and enjoy the quiet beauty of the area!

One of my favorite places to hike. beautiful and quiet with lots of wildlife.

I hiked this trail with my 3 year old and my 2 year old was in a carrier. My 3 year old loved it! This was his first hike and he did so well. Trail was fairly easy to walk on, the last .9 miles is a gradual incline to the top.

Easy to moderate trail that is well marked with metal blazes, painted rocks and cairns. Beautiful views from the top.

Easy hike, nice views near top. I would call latter part a bit more moderate effort though.

beautiful trail! Have done it 2x now and the view will not disappoint!

Nice short hike. Close to home which makes it easy to get to after work!

Beautiful weather for the hike, incredible views at the top with not a cloud in the sky! Trail is steep, but clean and well marked.
