My husband and I did this hike after dinner in hopes of a good sunset view - we were not disappointed! The trail was well marked and we made it to the top in about twenty minutes, spent ten or so at the top gazing at the view, and fifteen to get down. The two hour estimate on the sign board is a little long for anyone in decent shape. The views from the top are absolutely gorgeous!

Spent over 50 summers on Loon Lake, but didn't climb on Kipp until this week. This is a short scamper up to the ledge above the cliffs that grace Kipp's southwestern face. A beautiful view of Loon Lake awaits those who hike up. Suitable for all ages, the hike is wooded and well-marked. Part of the Chester Challenge.

Beautiful morning hike with the family and dog. Picturesque views of Loon Lake. This was my five year old daughters first hike. She said, “You can touch the sky from up here!”

Nice short trail with a decent view of Loon Lake and a wooden platform to sit and rest your pack and things. Good spot for a picnic.

This was a nice quick hike to views of Gore Mountain and Loon Lake. The trail was a mixture of mud and snow and windy at the top. Overall I’ll do this hike again.

Great quick trail fir the youngsters I have done this one twice. On the second trip we spotted a fairly big porcupine near the summit. If you are looking for something to do with the young kids, this is it. Only 2 miles round trip.

Great trail, well marked. The sign at the trailhead said it was a 2 hour hike, but it's not really that long. I did it in an hour and 15 minutes, and that was with spending almost a half hour at the summit

Awesome hike! Some parts were steep but well worth it once at the top! Views from the top were stunning! Bring bug spray! They were brutal! Would love to do it again!

This is a very short trail but has great views! Perfect to do with Stewart Mountain right down the road and some of the other Chester Challenge mountains for a full day of hiking. I brought my dog and they were nice short walks for him.

Nice short hike of 1.8 miles, views of Loon Lake and southern Adirondack peaks are very nice. This is one of 8 trails that are part of the "Chester Challenge" offered by the town of Chester.

Great easy-moderate hike. There was a little bit of snow/ice on the ground so a light crampon could be useful. This trail is very well marked with yellow signs almost every 20 feet or so. Beware of the private property and stay on the trail! The trail ends with a fantastic view of Loon Lake and Gore mountain in the distance. There is also a nice sign that denotes different peaks that can be seen at the end of the trial. I am a fit 28 year old and it only took me 20 minutes to reach the end.
