HikingGreat!MuddyScramble

When taking it very casually and taking an extended break at the top the trip took about 5.5 hours. Even the smallest water features make for a picturesque, casual first half. The challenging and relentless second half is exhausting yet fun; that brief scramble everybody talks about at the end adds a nice touch of exposure and adrenaline. On a Thursday summer morning we saw maybe 12 groups throughout the whole trail, so it felt really secluded. Nice and tired now but I’ll be talking about that trail for a while. Highly recommend.

Amazing trail. Took halfway house to long trail to sunset and would recommend this loop. Sunset seemed wider and easier on the knees going down. Was told by park officials to avoid Laura Cowels and glad we did based on other reviews. The ridge line is spectacular and absolutely worth the work.

Nice moderate trail. Old fire tower piers and shack up top.

Hiked 8/1: amazing trail!! Glad I followed the park recommendation. very gusty at the top - almost 30 mph winds! make sure to bring something warm and wear good hiking shoes/boots. there is no shame in butt-scooting on the way down as this is murder on the knees for sure and very slick rock in some spots.

HikingGreat!

This trail was amazing. Just the right distance for me and my pup. I loved the view. The shelter cabin is amazing. I'm going to go back and stay one night when it opens again. A very peaceful and fun hike.

HikingGreat!

awesome hike! took us 2.5 hours to reach the peak. the last 0.2 miles was very steep. we have two shephard mix dogs that handled it well. we left at 8am on a Saturday and the trail was not busy at all. took 2 hours to go back down. the views were worth the effort. would definitely recommend.

HikingGreat!

I screwed up the recording but total trip was about 45 mins to the firetower, 15 minutes to watch the sunset, then a half hour back down the mountain. Maybe 1 mile to the peak? Great 360 degree view above the trees (W Lake Champlain, N Mt Mansfield, S Camel’s Hump & E Worcestire Mountains)

Perfect Summer day hike ...would not attempt this during Mud Season. Take E. Warren road to Sherman road, head up to take a Left on Bowan road, follow signs to parking lot. Yellow blazes are well marked until the pond. Blue blazes are old and sparse after pond. Summit isn't far beyond the creepy cabin. We had a great time. Lots of raspberries. Blueberries at the summit. Dogs allowed off leash if under owner voice control. Our lab loved this hike.

I’m giving this trail a good score because of the cool woods on a hot day and also the exotic mushrooms all along the way. Except a slight incline for about 35-40 minutes and then a very anticlimactic ending at the summit with no view. Take note of the mushrooms and pretty forest along the way!

Definitely built for biking. Beautiful but a lot of switchbacks. Pretty busy in the summertime.

Great hike! Last mile was for sure challenging. Thought it was funny when we got to the top and realized others were coming off the gondola. Was wondering how they looked so fresh at the top. it was nice having a real bathroom at the top.

Surprisingly easy climb- was really worried about the last 0.2 scramble for my dog, but she did better than I did on that part! To be fair, a lot of other dog owners said that their pups had trouble with it, and I can see why- lots of big jumps, but nothing slabby and slippery. Great views at the top, and overall, in my opinion, the easiest VT 4,000 footer by far!

We hiked the Sunset Ridge Trail up and then climbed to the Summit. Views were worth the struggle and scrambles. Very nice trail after tree line, just rocky. Towards bottom of mountain it was muddy. We hiked Laura Cowles Trail down and that was a mistake. Very steep but the problem was the slippery rocks and overall wetness. Don’t take this trail especially after it rains. Overall views were worth it. Amazing summit.
