Really nice trail. Bugs were terrible at cemetery and we had heavy duty bug spray on! Cemetery is a little difficult to find but when you do find it, it is rather fascinating. But the bugs were HORRIBLE in the graveyard.

This hike is by far one of my favorites! Also perfect for hiking with kids. We start and go up Faulkner, and then go down the old carriage trail. Going up is fairly flat and then towards the top a little rocky but nothing crazy. And it’s only for a few minutes like that. This app says moderate but I wold rate it easy. It’s not steep. My boyfriend carried our 4 month old. My daughter who’s hiked it at the age of 3,6,7 wearing a dress and carrying two Barbies the first time. Definitely pack a lunch, and enjoy the view for a few. It’s dry and no ice on the Faulkner trail, and carriage trail. Highly recommend going out to eat after at “The White Cottage” down the road. They have the dankest fish and chips! And the staff where friendly and just awesome! Happy hiking! Enjoy your 2020 quarantine hiking and enjoying Nature, not thinking about it!

I felt this hike was rated correctly as moderate. There were a couple of small streams to hop across, but there were adequate rocks so I didn't get my feet wet. It was steep in parts, but not too strenuous. The lookout was great, the view of the lake was awesome! The summit was just okay, in my opinion.

10 out of 10. Such a great hike. My husband and I are NOT beginner hikers but a beginner hiker could easily do this trail. It took us 2.5 hrs up and back (we hung out on top for 5 minutes, it was cold). Beautiful views.

Trail is very well maintained and easy to navigate.

Good and wide for roughly 2.4 miles to Irene Falls. From there it gets narrower and rockier. Last .5 miles is getting pretty washed out.

Great trail! Easy for the first 2 miles and then up up up ending with a very fun scramble. No bugs whatsoever but today was cold 54, top was windy and quite chilly. Panoramic views. Slightly muddy, not bad at all.

Muddy and there’s no marking of the trail. It’s all logging roads. Nice view at the top though.

Awesome 360 degree views at the summit. Weather was cloudy when we started but by the time we reached the summit it was clear all around. Beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and the Adirondacks across Lake Champlain. Ice was almost completely melted. Pretty buggy until about half way up the mountain.

Good challenging hike, but not too long and not too challenging. This trail had no streams or rivers, differentiating it from the Windsor trail on a 90 degree day like today, that would have been nice. The lookouts were nice.

Enjoy the hike along the lake because it’s a sustained slog, passing a waterfall, to the lodge. Continue up another couple hundred feet to a beautiful view of the notch.

Good hike run with little elevation

Just hiked this on 5/24/20, with my sister. It was about 65 degrees out. We hiked deans trail to the summit. Both trails are taken care of and marked well. Beautiful streams and little bridges. We enjoyed the wild flowers. Deans trail was pretty dry, Monroe not so much. We ended up sliding down Monroe on our buttocks and using are raincoats as sleds. It was quite slippery trying to walk it for a good hour or so. We saw some children hiking on Monroe (not sure if they made it to the top) but only adults on dean. Then we did Monroe down. I suggest bringing gloves to slide down Monroe due to the snow and ice, also wearing pants (some people had shorts on ) all depending on when you do it of course. It was beautiful hiking deans trail, I wouldn’t bring young children on the trail personally. It was steep at times. If you’re not an experienced hiker I highly suggest Monroe to the summit and back. If you’re up for a beautiful challenge try deans then come down Monroe! Bring lots of water and maybe a windbreaker for the top as it gets windy. It’s beautiful!
