This trail actually came out to be closer to 4ish miles and the elevation gain was really not bad! The trail to the cabins/ruins is packed, you could probably even get by without added traction but it did help me (microspikes)! After the cabins I'd recommend snowshoes/skis as it's not packed, I tried to get up to the mining stuff and post-holed the whole time so I turned around. Beautiful views of the mountains both in front and behind, a really good sized parking lot (it does come up on you kind of fast so be prepared!) with no facilities but definitely a great hike! I'd love to see it in summer with no snow too!

First time hiking a real mountain and I’m officially hooked. Went on 4/22/18 and lucked out with a very clear day. Views of Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood, Mt. Jefferson, and Mt. Rainier. Summiting was an awesome experience!!!

This was a great hike. Love the waterfalls and river. There was still snow, but I still was in my running shoes. I would say it is not hard, but moderate for beginners.

Great family hike

Took Tuckermans via lions head up and down. Awesome hike, more like a climb- especially the last mile.

Went this past weekend to attempt summit. Had a late start and a 6 mile walk to the trail head where we set up camp for the night and decided to call it quits the next morning and will return to attempt the summit when the road is clear. Still spectacular views and a fun time camping out at the base. Good practice hike. If you want to attempt it with the road still snowed over, snow shoes will help you immensely, however crampons will do fine too.

The waterfall was stunning. We parked on the Mass side but also chose to go along the NY side and back. It was a lovely hike!!

Great hike! All the snow has melted and the view at the top is amazing!

Great hike

Went up yesterday — Sunday April 22 — and it was classic spring hiking conditions in the mountains. Slick, icy packed snow on the trail in the morning that was mush by the afternoon. Mud, ice, and slush.

Definitely felt better with poles and microspikes. There is an avalanche chute that some had used as a shortcut. Would require ice ax / crampons but the conditions yesterday were ideal. No heavy snow loads and excellent packed snow for an alpine style ascent. I had the gear, but I opted to stick to the switchback trail.

Nothing too crazy. A nice way to spend a morning. Took me three hours up and three hours down. Worth it to stop at the lake on the way up or down. It's barely any extra hiking.

Was windy enough at the summit that I added a few layers. Didn't bother shedding any on the way down and was almost 60 when I got back to the trailhead. It was a relief to change into a t-shirt.

Nice easy hike with my kids today. Beautiful view of Warrensburg.

Incredible day on Saturday for a hike. The view from the top was crystal clear and the trail was packed and a bit slushy. Would highly recommend doing this before all the snow melts over the next week or so. Great little hike. Didn't use spikes or snow shoes.

First time hiking Mt Moosilauke. Phenomenal hike. Still a lot of snow along the trail on 4/22, but well packed down. Icy at the top and so beautiful. Used crampons + trekking poles and was fine. Be aware that the gate to access the lodge is closed (at least it was when we hiked), so expect to add at least 30 min to 45 min to your total trek time.

For a short distance to the top of this 4k you will be packing a punch, it is quite steep, but the path is well-marked, no issues with that! Need microspikes, the snow was melting in a lot of areas though so it was REALLY slippery, I gotta say this mountain surprised me with how hard that last part was, it just keeps going up and up and with melted snow well..... I was extra slow! View at top was amazing and worth it and the decent was a breeze!

I was visiting Palm Desert and wanted to gain some elevation for a view. This was a fun hike with terrific views, glad I chose it.

Absolutely beautiful trail!! It was hard packed - we did it with yak trax and had no issues. Stunning views the entire time!

Beautiful hike, very well maintained trails. Very busy on the weekends though...

Quite a nice walk. Gets very busy on the weekends (with nice weather). I usually go on weekdays to avoid the crowds.

Went about 3 years ago on a school field trip, and it was amazing! Beautiful scenery, lots of wildlife, light traffic, plenty of shade in the woods, but it's honestly hotter In the woods. on the open trail it's nice and breezy and easy to keep cool, only hiked halfway, as school policy only allowed so long of physical activity for prevention of injury but all in all a great hike! stopped in the middle for lunch, climbed up the mountain a bit to get some amazing views then turned arou d and hiked back down! definately intend on finishing the hike someday!

Muddy but awesome! We've done it before. Great for kids and dogs.

Great workout. But the views kinda stink at the top. It was blocked by so many trees, you do get a better view if you move down the trail to lookout. Over all though it was a good hike.

A great place for birding and easy hiking or trail running. Avoid in the middle of the summer when the horseflies will swarm you.

Just a little snow at the top! Great hike.

Well graded trail. It’s nice and wide, good for groups/dogs. My GPS put us at almost 8mi round trip. It would be miserable without micro spikes/snowshoes. Near the top you have to frogger through the skiers and boarders. It’s compact so spikes are best at the top. I’d recommend getting a late start and heading down at 4 after the runs close. That way your return trip is peaceful and without the mountain traffic.

Amazing hike to hojo’s. Steady climb the entire 2.4 miles. Great views.

Went all the way to the summit...about 1.5 feet of snow at the top...it slowed me down a decent bit but it was still doable with out an extra gear...just keep that in mind. Again, I’d like to reiterate that the second half of the trail is soooo much better than the first half...it’s got a whole different energy to it.

hadn't done yet. looking forward to the climb in late May. wish me luck I don't get eaten by lion, tiger and bears.... oh my.

Hiked this with my husband pushing our bob stroller and my 7 month old baby strapped to me in the Ergo. Difficult but amazing. We loved every minute. The views are outstanding!

My son & I did the loop this morning in about an hour starting about 8:30. Definitely ascend clockwise as the trail is quite craggy. There are many switchbacks to the top but none are too vertical. Completing the loop on the descent the trail is generally wider with fewer rocky steps so it's an easy run to the end. I'm 72 and he is 35. We both agree that on a scale of 1-10 this hike is a 6 for difficulty and a 9 for fun.
