Nice hike but easy to get lost. We took Teds trail up and followed the markers the whole way, but missed the direct route to top. It's not well marked and recommend following the map here as there are no signs for it. The hike is quiet and serene w nice views at the top. We did get a bit bored as the scenery is the same the whole way up and down.

Did this trail with my niece a few weeks back and had a good time. Scenic and moderately easy with a few steep points. However it is not that well marked in a few spots and we went off the trail a few times and had to back track. I'll probably do it again in the fall.

Great hike! Ted’s trail follows a stream and has a small waterfall. When you get near the summit there are multiple vista points and good spots for sitting to have lunch. If you bring binoculars (or have good eye sight) on a clear day you can see Boston from the Southeastern vista point. There are wild blueberry bushes at the top that will probably bear fruit by July/August. Carolyn’s trail is easier so make sure to take that one back down.

great trails all around the mountain. shannons trail was the one took most of the way but the gregg is nice too. good views throughout.

Nice views, most of the trail is clearly marked. Enjoyable and scenic. Meet some nice people on the trail and we travel together for most of the trail.

Great little hike, stream was flowing full with winter run-off. We hiked in 1.5 miles and back, can’t wait to do the whole loop!

This was pretty good. We got lost off the trail a few times. It wasn’t super duper gorgeous (but still pretty good). Good views going up — nice waterfalls— but the summit didn’t have much to see. Took us just under 3 hours (but we did go at least 0.7 miles off course). I’m glad I did this hike but I don’t think I’ll do it again.

very cute short little trail

Took Teds trail up with our Westie dog, and found the whole hike got better and better as you ascend. Toward the top, we missed the direct route to the summit, but got back on track before taking the cliff trail. Eventually reached the top, with some unclear trail markings. Descended down Carolyn’s trail, which again was tricky to follow and find the path the start at the top. Easy clear path when you’ve descended a little. Overall great hike.

A great hike. My friends and I started on a misty morning and ended up taking Carolyn's trail up instead of Ted's trail by mistake. It has some more difficult spots but overall not that difficult. Made for a nice, enjoyable day. The scenery was pretty. Since it was cloudy, we didn't have the best view at the top but I would do this home again for sure. Next time we will be sure to take Ted's trail up.

One of my favorite hikes! View was great.

Hike was very pleasant. I started up Teds and came down from the summit view using Carolyn's trail. Ted's is very rocky with lots of tight treed forests going up. There are a few spots you have to scramble up some short climbs. There currently is no running stream or water falls going up Teds. The climb might start to feel like you are never going to get a view and then you come out of the trees with wonderful views.
The top has a huge cairn of rocks. Plenty of space to stretch out and relax without being within sight of other hikers.
I took Carolyn's trail to the right on the way back down. Very nice open pine and hardwood forests with a well marked trail. The hike back down was not too demanding but there are a few spots you want to slow down where it is steeper or slippery.
I would do this hike again if I lived closer.

First of all, there were ABSOLUTELY NO TICKS found on any of the 9 people in my group. 'nuff said.

Trail taken in counter-clockwise manner.
Stayed on Gregg for insurance from ticks.
No signage on from lookout at top off Gregg trail to Shannon trail. Poor signage on Lower Link trail.

2 star ding for poor signage and blazing on Lower Link Trail.

Nice directional views

Great hike! No bugs. After you get through the field, I recommend taking the Lower Link first rather than continue on Shannon Trail. I have bad knees and Lower Link is pretty steep so going down would have been a long, painful trip. It was a workout going up but worth it.

Gorgeous views, the rambling little waterfall along Ted's Trail is lovely, definitely go up that way and not up Carolyn's. Tons of beautiful mushrooms and ghost pipe. My complaints are the awful bugs for half the hike, which really put a damper on a great outing, and the not-so-well-marked trails. I would recommend this in early spring or a cooler summer day with very good bug protection, and it is worth it for the rewards at the top.

No dogs...screw you NH.

Took Shannon's trail from the Crotched rehab Gregg trail. Did not have a single tick. I know it was a terrible season, but I live close by and the tick population has dropped significantly in recent weeks. Also folks, I see a few people bring their dogs. If you are using the rehab trail, please do not bring your dog. The trails are designed for wheelchair access and the rehab center also brings residents with developmental issues, and a dog can be very frightening, no matter how well behaved. There are lots of access points to Crotched trails, and I would have loved to have brought my dog too, but not on Gregg trail.

Great trail. I was scared to come because everyone was raving about the ticks. I didn't have any issue with ticks, prepare for deep wood bugs(lemon grass oil worked nicely). Great views off Shannon's trial. Get out there, it's lovely and no one is out there! Total serenity.

Great hike, not much water in stream was kind of hopeful for that but views were amazing!

Trail is great. It was a little more demanding than I thought it would be. Pretty good climb to the top, but was worth it. I wouldn't want to take younger children on three trail though.

Ditto about the ticks! Came up Gregg's & Shannon's Trail, and was going to hike to the summit. When I stopped to tie my shoe, my socks and pants were literally crawling with ticks. I was stopped near a stream crossing which was high and I wasn't sure I wanted to cross anyway, so I aborted the hike.

Nice hike but couldn't continue on because there were so many ticks. Got onto the grassier trail and there were instantly ticks on my shoes.

ive done this loop before and enjoyed it very much. Decided to take my son out for hike and shortly into the walk i found a tick. Ok, there out this happens. Went a little further and found a few more on both of us. Then I happened to look down on some of the grass and could literally see a handful of ticks hanging on the grass. Decided to abort the trip. By the time we got off the trail i had pulled a dozen or so off each of us! The area is infested!. Its unfortunate because I do enjoy this hike but id avoid the area at this time.

Okay, first I must say I loved this hike with my dogs. I did go slightly slower than normal because I was taking pictures and resting the dogs. I took Greg's trail until I realized dogs were not allowed, so I jumped over to Shannon's trail. Then Upper link to Summit West to Lower link. I must say lower link kicked my butt as I thought it would be cake walk and instead it's all uphill! Really fantastic hike.

The only negative aspect of this hike which really only reflects the environment and not the location, was the ticks. Between my two dogs and myself we had over two hundred ticks on us! I'm not exaggerating, it was horrendous and I'm still finding some several hours later. I had three different bug repellent/ spray/oils on but I'm not sure if it made any difference at all.

Nice hike. Great views at top. little miss leading on trek down says trail doesnt go back to recreational area but if you follow map it does.

Take Gregg trail and at the top take a right and follow the ATV trail over the wall to Shannon's trail to upper link trail then Summit west trail to lower link trail you won't be disappointed. Picnic table at the top about a 5 + Mile enjoy.

it was nice , more of a walking path through the woods than a hike though , but as for dog friendly, there are signs everywhere that forbid dogs and horses and bikes , I ignored them and brought the dog , one plus is that the trail is VERY handy cap accessible!
