This trail is now well marked . It states in the GMC guide to Vermont that : “although the elevation is not one of the highest it is among the most challenging in VT.”
I agree . I loved the view (but I also love that whole Eden area.)
The other reason I gave it a 5 is the variety of terrain and this trail is not well traveled by people so if you want to escape people this is the trail . Saw two partridge , at the summit many signs of moose . There is a false summit that gives a great view too. I took my time, with pictures , breaks etc . For me It was 4 hours round trip , or 14.300 steps on my fit bit . Poles very helpful on this trail , hairpin turns and rocky the last 1/2 mile .

NOTE: This trail is on private land owned by the Boy Scout camp across the road. They are pretty understanding but just so you know. Plus they hike up this trail every Friday between June 15 through August 10, with up to 45 people at a time.

It is a good, moderate hike with expensive views in lots of directions from the top. A fairly long hike for kids under 11, but older ones should do fine. There are some short scrambles towards the top but not bad. The trail doesn't get a ton of maintenance but is in good shape and mostly well-marked. You will see numerous animal signs, including birds and moose.

It starts as a quick cut off from a logging road which is easy to miss. After that, it's pretty clear which way to go.

This trail was pretty easy and I recorded it on my fit bit as 1.52 miles each way so right around 3 miles total. Took my friend and I only 45 minutes up and 30 minutes down. This would be a very nice one to take kids on- just remember to take bug spray!! View was not 360 but you have a great view of Eden lake and the windmills to your left!!!

i’m a pretty experienced hiker and found this mountain to be much more difficult than expected. the mountain dragged on and on. if you’re looking for a hike where you will see no other people but lots of moose, this is the hike for you! clocked it as 4.5 miles

A few steep parts but very manageable. I thought the overlook .5 miles from the top was the summit and then stumbled into the rest of the trail when I was going to head back down.

We tried this hike in 2016 and for the life of us couldn't find the trail head. The trail was very easy to find marked with blue markers and arrows. It took us 1.75 hours up and 1.25 hours down. My 3 year old walked about 2.5 miles. This trail anyone can conquer. Just keep going. Great hike with a very pretty view!

There have been changes and improvements to this trail. It is now well marked and easy to follow. My first attempt was spring of 2016 but never found the summit. We reached a point where the trail used to go but is now marked with caution tape. Sparse blue tree markings led in the opposite direction. Following those seemed wrong since they led downhill. During another recent attempt, July 2017, I learned it was the correct trail to the summit. It is 5 miles total (up and back). There is a look-out a 1/2 mile from the summit. The view is nice but don't stop there! Continue to the summit for the most reward. This hike requires lots of rock and root climbing. It's not terribly difficult for the experienced hiker but could be tricky in wet conditions. Took us 4 hours total. We hiked at a moderate pace and spent time taking pictures. I enjoyed it very much.

Tough hike. It's 6 miles up and back. Hard hike at the end but nice view once you get to the summit.

The description of the hike is wrong because the elevation is about 1473. We expected much easier hike based on the description but it was beautifully marked and the view at the top was great!

The trail is now open to the summit . Don't be fooled by the false summit . There has been some nice work done on this trail just this year 2017 it has opened the trail up and easier to follow . The blue insignia and the new wooden arrows that point the needed direction and say Mt. Norris are the way to go . This is approximately 6.1 miles round trip . Moderate until the last 3/4 mile or so and then it is more advanced. Awesome views with signs of moose in the area . Worth the trip .

had a hard time finding a trail (if there is one), and we don't think we found the top. Bushwhacking for sure.

This is not a marked trail. Great for bushwhacking type adventure . Bring GPS and or compass .
It is about 3.5 miles round trip and steep with rocky ledge at the summit. Great exploring , not a thick forest . Such beauty in the forest. Streams and plenty of birds .

I'm not sure we found the right place, but two locals confirmed the location. In one direction it was old logging roads, and in the other mostly hiking along a washes out stream bed. We trekked around, wondering if we were missing the main attraction, but had no luck. I
