Tough towards the top, but well worth it!

Well marked trail with a steep incline in the beginning, strenous but not too hard. Great views and dog approved! Good trail for a dog used to trails and has some listening skills and is conditioned a little.

Great loop around the reservoir. Wet in some spots but maintained very well. Very tranquil. Loop took 75 minutes in total.

This trail was pretty intense at the beginning. Lots of rocks and pretty steap but totally doable, just breathe and make it to the top! Once at the top it does clear out to a pretty clear with some areas of tall grass. The veiw of Bennington at the top was beautiful ♡

Great hike and challenging at times. All the information in previous posts is useful and great, so please check it out before going out on this one. The view of Bennington is beautiful.

Visited this summit yesterday. As indicated in the previous post, the start of the trail is under construction, due to spring washout, so the first quarter mile is a bit rough. It was a fantastic hike after that though! It IS quite wet in some areas still, so good boots are suggested. As others have noted, there is not much to see at the summit, but there is a great view overlooking Bennington about a mile and quarter before the summit. The rock slides were fun to climb, and the short jaunt I followed along the Western Ridge trail was neat to see. Overall, a very enjoyable, and challenging day out! I would certainly do it again.

very easy trail. $4 for each person to hike.

Nice, peaceful trail with the reward of chilling by the reservoir at the end. The trail is pretty flat - the main challenge is fording all the little streams. It can be muddy in spots.

Well maintained trail, perfect for walking with kids and dogs. Picnic areas abound, perfect for a snack before or after your walk. Kona gives this 4 out of 4 paws.
