Great hike. Nice cabin and lookout rooftop deck. Partially on AT.

Awesome hike, gorgeous trail. This is well maintained and it being my 1st Vermont hike was impressed by how well maintained the trail was. A very accessible trail head makes the start of the day even better. Well done Vermont. Tent platforms above Cooper Lodge makes it a nice play to say as well.

Pretty forest and some variety of trail with some boulders and rock at the top. . Interesting abandoned structures at top. No real great views or sense of arriving at the top. Some good steep parts for cardio. Very well marked. Very lightly traveled. I almost never see another person and hike here regularly as it is very near my house.

Loved the hike! My wife and I are always looking for a challenging workout. First 2.2 miles were gently rolling. The next 1.4 miles to Long Trail were strenuous, but enjoyable. It was great looking through the trees to Pico and Ramshead peaks as we gained elevation. Cooper Lodge was neat... never been to it before. The last part of the hike was interesting... steep, but not very long, and plenty of foot holds. Views were fantastic. 360 degree views. Gorgeous.

This is a lovely easy trail that follows a mountain brook and various small falls. The drive to the trail was beautiful! We even saw a black bear bumble across the road.

Great hike for a cool summer day. Slowly builds in intensity before leveling out around the halfway point. Final mile involves some rock scrambling but nothing that should prevent someone taking their time. We experienced a rain storm on the summit and still made it back down with minimal slippage.

The beginning of the hike is fine and very interesting due to some write ups about the history of the area in Gettysburg quarry. However, the remainder of the trip is poorly marked and overgrown in the area where you would make the final assent to Owls Head. We have done this hike many times over the years and were disappointed to not even be able to find the trail. Go for it if you’d like to see Gettysburg quarry at about .5 mile.

Nice hike. The rock backdrop on the falls is beautiful!

Nice short hike with some elevation gain. Make sure you see the sign on the trail on the right to the prospect rock otherwise you might miss it.

A Great morning adventure! A fun amount of climbing and hiking. Recommend to all seeking a high intensity walk through the woods.

Beautiful view, nicely maintained trail, kid friendly and high foot traffic. Wish it was a little less busy but it was a VT summer day, can’t expect to have the trail to ourselves. Was a great hike with the kiddo.

Kicked our butts. We took the Eagle cut to Ccc road to Laura Cowls Trail to the top. The LC section was steep and seemingly unending but fun in that it was a challenge — mostly a boulder and rock scramble. It had rained off and on the day before and much of the way was damp. Came down via the sunset ridge trail — easier and drier. Might try it as the way up and back if I do this Trail again. (Hubby says he never wants to do it again)

Such a great spot! This is a working farm that takes donations and welcomes dogs! Keep the leashed at the parking lot, visitors center and farmland bug let them loose in the forest! They have 30 miles of trails so it's definitely an adventure.

Very good trail. Well marked. Lots of small elevation changes but nothing too steep. I was slightly unnerved by the two different makeshift shelters in the middle of the woods (homeless??). Probably would not do this solo for that reason.

Super hard, super gorgeous at the top!

Super pretty! Great way to spend a couple of hours.

went end of may... spectacular view at the chin. worth the long trek and deffinitly worth making the loop. profanity trail was covered in deep snow, so watch out going down after winter time into.

Lovely hike, terrific view.

Loved this trail! Our favorite bit was the young pine grove near the end. Smelled like Christmas! It’s a bit tricky to find the entrance to the trail though. We ended up parking in the lot and taking the long trail entrance at the back of the lot and crossing the road. It’s not marked as the white rocks trail until you get a decent way up the mountain. Make sure to wear good hiking shoes and bring a walking stick as the trail gets a bit rocky.

fun hike with some partial views of Monadnock.

Awesome hike, almost too easy

Absolutely gorgeous, peaceful trail that crosses the Long Trail toward the top. A nice lodge for through hikers at the pond, which is a lovely vista. Very uneven ground, lots of short but steep increases and crossing over water ways. A fun hike with a decent work out. Definitely recommend!

Decent hike. Could hear highway the whole time and see from “window” view. Still pretty, especially when you first walk in. Great hike if you are looking to go all the way to Camels Hump!

Beautiful view ! The leaves were colourful, and the lake was blue turquoise. Not too challenging, just enough if you don't stop! Would recommend

Beautiful place to explore. Be sure to walk past main viewing area to find away across to the other side for more spectacular views and less people. You can find your way into the water for a swim and natural whirlpool.

Was a great little hike, definitely a steep hike, but worth it. If you’re looking for a nice workout/hike and don’t have a lot of time, this is the hike for you.

Great hike. You start with stone steps. The pond is beautiful. You can also keep going for a few more minutes to see the top of the ski lift. We aren’t regular hikers and it took us about 2 hours round trip.

Pretty classic New England hike, lots of rocks, 3-5 feet in spots with rungs, and one rock to climb under. Top has great views.
