Decent hike with great view from the top! Almost all way up is tree-zone so you might get a feeling that there will be no view at all, but you will be pleasantly rewarded when you get closer to the summit.

After the overlook there are tons of blackberries and blueberries. Watch out for bears! We did run into a mamma bear and her 2 cubs directly in front of us on the trail. She reared up on her hind feet to ward us away from her and her cubs. So we backtracked and didn't finish the loop but it was a fun adventure. Easy to get off course as not well marked.

Fun hike, lots of dogs

Great trail, well marked! Both Ted's and Carolyn's seemed to have yellow markers across most of it. Not too steep of inclines that it couldn't be done with good sneakers if you didn't have hiking boots! We hiked a little bit of Cliff trail (which is only on top of the mountain, doesn't start from parking lot), to search for the summit but from what we found, the Ted's trail provided better views. We hiked up Ted's and came down Carolyn's and it was really beautiful even just being in the woods! The waterfall was 10 feet tall probably, but really thin -- not too exciting. But that didn't deter us because the rest of the trail was really nice! Fresh blueberries in many parts nearer the top, maybe a good idea to bring tupperware or a little container to take some home! They're ripe now!

All in all a good hike with rewarding views. There is a lot of water at the base (several streams and boggy areas), so it was humid AF and verrry buggy. Bring your spray! The trails were all marked yellow, so we accidentally looped around and started back toward the trailhead before we’d realized what we’d done. The trail signs were also posted in poor sight lines. Keep your app up or your wits about you.

Great trail! Went up Ted's & down Carolyn's and did the Cliff trail on the way up. Well marked for the most part. Waterfall wasn't huge (10 ft) but very pretty with a foot bridge to cross right at the fall. Cliff trail is worth the hike as it had the best vista views. Didn't push it and made round trip in 4 hrs with stop for lunch.

Challenging, very scenic and pretty trail going up Carolyn's Trail, pretty much straight hike all the way up with some pretty rocky/ rooty areas. Pretty well marked through most of the trail. Pretty view at the top. Tons of blueberry bushes although not ripe yet. The "waterfall" is more like a "water tinkle." It's about 3/4 feet tall with not much of a flow. If you're a waterfall junkie, don't go just for this, you'll be disappointed.

The trail itself is a pretty easy going leisure hike with nice scenery. tons and tons of ticks though!!!

Great trail. We missed Ted's Trail on the way down.

Nice easy hike up to North Pack. Definitely recommend continuing on to the Cliff Trail viewpoint (adds a total of 1 mile there and back). Note that maybe a quarter mile past the trailhead, the trail seems to continue straight ahead while the actual trails bears to the left.

This was a wonderful hike with rewarding views at (what we assumed was) the end. Only complaints would be the plethora of bugs (pack lots of bug spray!) and the lack of indication of the summit trail on AllTrails. Very well marked- there were markers about every 30 feet or so- just make sure you’re paying attention directionally. Overall a very nice hike.

both trails were fine but the 1.5 mile road walk was not enjoyable. i wish i had done teds to the peak then backtracked to Caroline's trail

It was a great hike!! If your not use to hiking this gets pretty difficult!!! BUT Let me noteee at the end I pulled 15 ticks off of me! Got home and pulled at least 30 off of my dog! If your going to do this be careful and check yourself throughly!!

took the Gregg trail up and back, this is definitely an easy hike...lots of bugs...disappointed in overall description of this.

Hiked May 22nd, no snow or ice. Beautiful views. Nice hike. Not challenging.

Up Lower link to upper link then down Shannon’s. Lower and upper link definitely more challenging. Steep and rock scrambling at times. Personally I loved it and we accomplished it fine with dog in tow. Became very buggy (May flies) normal for the season. Wet in places but doable. River crossing a little high- but again- doable. The views at the top are 100% worth it! Amazing. Shannon’s down definitely moderate to easy. Wider trail with less scrambling. Much shorter way to get to summit as well from the parking area on Crotched Rd. Less buggy. Wet in areas again making the rocks a little slick and again a higher stream crossing but all doable. Very ticky for so early in the season- one off of me, 5-6 off the dog and 2-3 off my friend. Next time will come a little more prepared with some sawyers! All in all amazing hike and can’t wait to do it again!

Hiked up and down Ted's Trail on a beautiful cool day last Thursday. Micro spikes were needed for the last quarter mile or so due to ice and snow, but it looked like a winter wonderland with ice and snow on the trees. Clear views of Mt. Washington, Boston skyline, and Mt. Monadnock. Great trail and always looks a bit different each time but not too difficult .

Took the Ted's trail up and Carolyn's trail back down. Ted's trail was pretty easy, challenging at places. Carolyn's trail made it difficult to descend because of ice on the trail. was able to bypass ice while climbing up by staying in the woods but would definitely recommend spikes for coming down on the ice on Carolyn's. took a total of 5h with adequate breaks to enjoy the view. Wapack trail surrounds these two trails, it is longer and more challenging.
