Easy but gorgeous

This is one of my favorite quick hikes around Rutland. Great views for not too much work.

Hiked this short loop on a Friday as a warm up for the weekend. It starts out pretty steep but levels off. The overlook is worth the hike. Great hike if you are staying at Gifford woods state park

Solid hike. Pretty mellow until you hit the ski trails, then the steeps begin. Final half mile is seriously steep; hands necessary up and down. Cool views. Easier summit than Equinox.

beautiful falls

The pleasant view from the peak was negated by the hordes of people on the trail...some of whom were smoking weed and blasting a boom box while hiking...numerous people talking on their cell phones as well. Did meet some nice folks on the peak to enjoy the sunny day with though

This trail is 17+ miles. Well marked and pretty dry till you pass the Lookout.

Great hike and view. Very good for a simple day hike or to watch the sunset. Dog friendly also. Our dog loves it

This is my first year hiking. I set out on this trail at 4:30pm on May 14th. Weather at trail head was 46 degree with a over cast. However I want to climb the peak. I was moving at about 900 steps pre ten minutes. Trail was well marked, one of the best I've seen this year. However it was muddy and super wet. About half way up there was snow, and it gets steep in spots. Like crawling steep only in spots do to all the rain and snow the trail was a brook. I see now why the green mountain clubs state trail closed until Morial day. However I don't listen and did it anyway. Weather changed quick at top of Mountain. Due to wet feet I walked service road back to bottom. I didn't like that it's a ski and cell phone gig. But it was nice and the closes I've been to 4000 feet yet. So much over cast I could get good picture. Deer leap loop is better hike for view !! Be well and see you on the trails, namaste!!

Nice little hike with great view. Well Marked !!

Trail was well marked, dry for the most part. It was a bit steep in spots
