This is a great hike to summit a mountain on the east coast and get a great view, when you don’t want to commit to summiting in the white mountains. But this trail is definitely crowded. It is wonderful to see so many families outside being active. But if you are looking for solitude, you won’t find it here.

The hike itself is a steep scramble for a good part of the way. But it’s very doable and fun. Don’t forget it’s windy at the top so bring layers.

I only gave it 4 stars due to how crowded it is. By everything else is wonderful. And there is a bathroom with running water in the parking lot.
