We hiked this trail to the top and back, it was not 6.4 miles but a little over 8 miles. There was not a clear spot to turn around as the Catamount XC trail goes on for many miles, so we stopped at approximately the top, and we got a little view, but not very much.

It was an enjoyable trail to hike, with beautiful scenery, but does not see much traffic in summer, some areas were not very well marked and 2 different people missed a turn and got lost on the way down. It was wet in places and the footing could be slippery. I would not classify this as a great trail for beginners.

At the top there was a lot of signs of moose activity.

(FYI The reviewer Jesepe A is obviously commenting on a different trail that starts nearby goes up to the Long Trail and back, https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/vermont/nebraska-notch-lake-mansfield-trail, that is not this trail)

It was nice but I was expecting more but it is great for all skill levels as well as biking and is strollerable and dog friendly but pooches must be leashed and clean up your scat. I was thinking there was more scenic stuff on this trail.

Just a walk in the park. Nice stroll but not much of a hike nor are there views. A lot of bike traffic to maneuver around too. Not all bikers know the rules of the road so you need to be aware of them or may get knocked over or run into.

Some greenery, nice scenery with the mountains around, easy, but you're never far from the road, fact reminded by the constant traffic noise and the regular crossings. Nice for a daily run, less for a Sunday hike.

Really nice trail system but they belong to three Trapp Family therefore you need to buy a trail pass at their outdoor center.

It was an easy walk. We did this walk in the beginning of November and it wasn't busy at all.

Super relaxing path around town with beautiful views. Thru town, fields, near the quiet path, under a covered bridge... Just a great way to get around. Accessible to any and all!
