I LOVE this trail! Its very short, maybe 20-30 minutes and in the middle of nowhere (very long drive from the seacoast) but WOW the view is spectacular! I love hiking and this is by far the shortest, easiest hike I've ever completed but no other mountain beats this view.
An easier side of moderate hike. Trails were well-marked and easy to follow because of previous hiker tracks in the snow. Would recommend wearing some traction gear like microspikes due to some ice. Could not go up the ladders on the ascent to Percival due to icy conditions; nor thru the caves on the descent from Morgan, so opted for the alternate routes which bring you around to avoid these. Views at top were really pretty and similar to West Rattlesnake, just at a higher elevation. Parking lots were plowed and plenty of space was available. Definitely would recommend this hike, good for beginners or any seasoned hiker!
Great, well-marked trail on the easy side of moderate. Beautiful summit - great views! There was a small layer of snow / ice so we didn't go through the cave. Went up Morgan and down Percival - took about 2.5 hours. Descent speed reduced due to slippery conditions (wet leaves, some ice, and small amount of snow.) Loved this hike; will definitely do it again.
Hiked to loop on 2 different occasions. First was in December before snow. Had the trail to myself. 2nd time was Labor Day weekend and was very busy. Summit of Morgan was crowded. There was a line at the ladders with alternating ascent and descent. I prefer to go up Morgan and down Percival.
