There is no view at the summit. The trail is massively grown in. I'm convinced my group was the only one there this year.

Nice loop, no views during the summer when the trees have their leaves.

Overgrown, undermarked and poorly maintained, and limited views at the top. Traverses a variety of ecosystems, including deciduous forest, swamp, and evergreen.

Nice forest hike but ZERO views at summit.Trees have overgrown it as of 9/17. Disappointing.

This trail is a bit overgrown and easy to lose, so pay attention to the blazes. The waterfall is not much of a waterfall- we weren't even sure that was it until we got to the end of the trail. And you have to go over and back across the creek four times each way- so 16 total crossings. It had been raining a lot recently when we went so you definitely couldn't get across on the rocks- we had to wade a couple times. However, the woods and the creek were beautiful and it was a pleasant hike!

I recently took my girlfriend on this trail, and it was definitely a good time. There are a few spots where you have to play leap frog on the rocks to successfully get across the brook and continue your hike but I find that to be the best part. On our way back out to the truck, she got a little froze up on one of the rocks and ended up taking a swim lol. I suggest this trail to those who are just trying to have a moderate walk through nature

Easy, short hike along the Broad Brook. About 1+ mi. Lots of shade; nice on a hot day.

Long steep hike with relatively bland views of bare trees, wish there was a better view at the top. Might be better at a different time of year.

A lovely long climb. Several options to vary off this trail. Will go back to try those variations. Not the end all BUT a view at the top is always nice. A wide well maintained trail. Recommend it to all
