The weather was warm today and it had been raining for a few days. That along with melting snow we thought that any hike would be muddy. This hike was not. It was a great workout, steep incline to start but had its moments of leveling off. Lots of switchbacks so keep your eyes on the markers. We didn't make it to the top because we ran out of time but we'll plan to go back and see the top. Great views even on the hike up. It helps that the leaves are all down at this time of year.
I hiked this during an early spring evening in May 2013. The leaves were just coming out, so the views on the way up were limited. It is definitely a challenging hike - approximately 1,000 feet of elevation gain in about 1.25-1.5 miles. The Conservation Society has done a great job with the trail; it is well marked and maintained.
