went to the falls and back. would love to hear if anyone hikes all the way to Stratton Pond.

the view alone was worth the effort! we found by accident as we were just looking for the falls...ended up hiking to the vista! breathtaking views.

Very tough hike! Definitely a difficult rating, parts of Hike were rock climbing along cliff edge. It is all up hill and then all downhill on return trip. We went up Long trail to summit, then came down on Profanity trail. Profanity trail is very steep but much more protected than Longs.

Monroe trail is a fantastic hike. My dogs love it. The trail is challenging and the trek down always feels longer than I expect it to. I plan for at least 5 hours. It takes me about 2 hours each way with no stops and I like to stay on the peak for about an hour.

Ok my wife and I love to walk and hike all over, and this was the first time we had picked a moderate hiking trail. It’s fall in VT. an the colors are changing so we chose to go up Canty Trail, we drove by the trail head it was not well marked out. The sign was behind some small trees and there was a little pull off room for about four vehicles. The walk stated out good and slow but turned out to be much more half way up. I’m getting up there in age but man I never thought we would have taken three an haft hours to get to the top. It took almost two hours to get back down. The falls was the best part of the hole hike. The wife and I would do it again but only to the falls the top is not all that.
Happy Hiking.

Nice low-key hike. Trees obscure view at the summit.

The hike is nice on relatively easy terrain. The falls are well worth the short trip. Make sure you see all three sets of picturesque falls. (The middle ones were our family favorite.) Seasonally these falls are also a great place for some mountain stream swimming and wading. There are several large pools around the falls. (Be careful of dangerous currents during high water times.) Beautiful spot! We stayed just down the road and hiked there a number of times.

This was a great hike. Moderately difficult. Quite a challenge for my four year old son with points of steady rise and Boulder strewn terrain. Only moderately difficult for my six and eight year sons, & wife who is 32 weeks pregnant. The cold ice beds were very neat, and the stunning Vista views just off trail were gorgeous.

I have a rash on my taint. it's a tough hike from the cascade falls to the summit. bring extra water! no view from the actual summit but there's a lookout tower with a good view

The trail seemed fairly easy until the second cascade. After that, it was hard. Today was almost a 90 degree day so my boyfriend and I went through over 3 liters of water, together. Snacks and possibly even a lunch/dinner are a must. I would rate this trail hard. Also, the summit has nearly no view unless you go to the lookout tower.
