Oh boy, the muscles in my legs were certainly tested, especially on the descent. This "monadnock" is a real pip. The views were fantastic from the hang-gliding ramp and from the observation tower.
We loved this hike. We followed our dog all the way - he somehow seemed to know exactly whcih way to go. It is a challenging hike for 2 legged beings. But it was absolutely worth it especially when we reached the snow covered firns nr the top - it was like entering a Christmas wonderland, and the views from the summit are spectacular. Do it!
This was a great hike. Cyrstal Cascade water fall was nothing like I've ever seen in New England. The trail was a lillte hard to follow but over all it was a moderate on the difficulty range. The views from the glider ramp and the fire tower at the summit were impressive. Mountains that stand alone never dissapoint in this department. One of my favorite hikes of all time
We went on a nice fall day. The hike was a good workout and in my opinion the trail was very well marked. I would definitely recommend this trail to the average to experienced hiker. The ups and downs of the trail were amazing but a lot some time for stopping to enjoy the scenery.
We went on a sunny spring day. The trail still had snow on the ground in places especially up near the summit. It is a pretty good workout and overall well marked. The waterfall at 1 mile mark is impressive. As you near the top, there is a wooded area that is not very well marked. Overall, not very crowded and a positive experience.
