Great trail. Hiked N-S. Few views on northern end, great ones on the S. Saw few hikers on day 1 (started around 1:30 pm and went to Killington view where we camped). Day 2 did the rest of the trail loop and saw about 4 other groups of hikers. Spectacular weather, leaves just starting to turn. Great water at both Cooley Glen and Emily Procter with streams--we should have refilled more though at some small springs along the trail as hiking with 4 kids ages 9-14, 3 adults and 2 dogs. Would be nice to have a few views cleared along the trail at the northern end. Nice to be hiking in shade--some other sections of the Long Trail can be very hot.

This loop probably is best in spring or fall when the hardwoods have dropped their leaves and the surrounding ridges and peaks can be seen. The trails are gorgeous but the young forest created the green tunnel effect ~ barely any sun could splash onto the trail, barely any sky could be seen, views never opened up, and it would have been stunning if they did. A nice couple of days but no drama here.
