    Amazing vista! Trail was short and manageable. Uphills followed by level portions, and the walk along the ridge is amazing. It had rained the night before and the rocks were very slippery, but all in all, a hike for just about anyone. Looking forward to doing this in the leaf season.
    The trail head only has 10 parking spots, so you may have to park at Guida's.

    Overall, the trail was very easy to follow and suitable for all ages and all level hikers. I went in a group of three and we completed the trip in 3 hrs. It was very icey as it had rained the night before after snowing which made footing a little slippery at times however, with a pair of yaktrax it was mostly no problem. The views from the ridgeline were uncomparable in CT and definitely worth the effort to get to the top.

    The trail starts off a little rocky ( I started before Guidas dairy)But after the first 10 mins It really became a nice trail. The ridge line with the views are incredible. Some parts off the trail have been uprooted but if you look ahead you can pick it up very quickly

    This is a very nice trail. Pretty basic hike but great views, especially this time of the year. Not very strenuous but very rewarding. I would recomend to anyone looking for a quick 1-3 hour getaway.

    The Mount Higby trial is a very fun hike. I think most any level of hiker can handle it. The hike is only about three and a half miles and it seems even shorter. Ive hiked it twice and once with a group of about eight people 3 of which we had to force to go. Those three ended up liking it the most. We sat for a break along looking over the cliffs egde and it was amazing, we could have stayed there for hours. There is lost of fun exploring on this hike which I love, because I always wonder off trail in search of something interesting which I wouldn't always recommend doing. This is a beautiful walk and you should definatly give it a try.
