Great hike, although much more challenging than the description would lead you to believe.
Went with a group of kids and they all found it difficult. We took the blue trail first, which in actuality takes you up to the top of "north peak" which is only halfway through the blue trail. We then turned around at that summit and came back the same way instead of continuing on to the end of the blue trail and on to the yellow one. The whole hike took over three hours and most of the party was exhausted by that point.
Overall very challenging and should not be done without snacks and breaks if you are bringing kids! Much of the trail is almost straight up rock clusters, which the kids had to be carried up.

awesome hike up the blue trail with views. the yellow trail on the way down not as awesome. It took like 4 hours with my two young kids. Blue trail seemed faster.

Great hike. I believe it's longer than 2.4 miles. Hiked w three young kids, up blue, down yellow, almost four hours.

Great Hike! I also recommend taking the Blue Trail up and Yellow Trail down. I would rate this more towards a difficult hike up and moderate down. Gorgeous mountain views!

Great views at the top. Wanted a challenge for my 4 year-old and me, so we went the blue trail both up and down. She loved that she had to use both hands and feet in a few spots going up, but I had to hold her hand in a few spots coming down.

Great hike, I took blue up and yellow down. I hiked the mountain with my dog and found a few spots a bit rugged for her, but she made it. The views were great and the blueberries were delicious.

Great trail, fantastic views. Just a word of caution this year. Ran into a yellow jackets nest halfway between the stone mt spur and burnt meadow trails on the the twin brook trail. Dog and girlfriend got stung right on the trail. Hike this all the time and love it. 30lb beagle mix can handle the rocks just fine. Just keep moving when on the yellow trail!

One of my all-time favorite hikes! It's good for all ages and is the perfect day hike if you're looking for something that is short but somewhat challenging!
