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.

Awesome hike but it is tough. I brought my three kids and they hated me for a little while afterwards. See my full write up. http://www.eastcoasthiker.com/trails/equinoxmountain

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.

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.

Great waterfall and short hike. Water was crystal clear and the perfect temperature to cool down in July.

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.

This is a nice easy out and back with beautiful forest, fields and flowers with Shelburne bay and Lake Champlain views.

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.

Beautiful hike through the woods (with some rocky scrambles) to an amazing view! Great workout.

Beautifully maintained trail. most of it is relatively flat with lots of tree roots. it's really close to a step drop off at the beginning, so don't bring little kids unless they'll hold your hand firmly. great informational signs.

This is right near mountain biking and the Catamount cross country ski trail. A great hidden gem of a resource. and it's a beautiful drive to get to the trail head.

Highly recommend!. The trails were very well maintained and well marked. There was a wide variety of trail types for all levels of experiences. Make sure to go to Mike's Tiki bar afterward!

a little buggy but lots of trails to explore and adequate signage to find your way

We hiked this trail yesterday with our pup. It’s a beautiful trail with views of Silver Lake and the Falls of Lana. It took our group of 4 (plus pup) 3 hours to complete. We did stop at the small beach near the picnic area of Silver Lake to let the pup swim and chase tadpoles. The trail is accurately rated as moderate, as there is a lengthy incline at the beginning to get to the falls and there are parts around the lake where you have to navigate up and around large rocks, boulders, and fallen trees. Don’t let that discourage you! It was great to have a trail that varied in terrain and the trees provided a welcome shelter from the sun. We highly suggest it!
