Beautiful view of Winnie lake at the top. Took the dog, loved being off leash. Just a few Moderately steep parts.

Some of the best views in the Lakes Region at the top! Take the Main Trail (Blue) up for a work out and rewarding partial views and the Brook Trail (Yellow) back down for a quieter walk in the woods.Trails are very well marked and it would be difficult to get lost. Only drawback is that the mountain is quite popular so I would recommend getting up early on the weekend or go on a weekday for a quieter experience. Highly recommend!

Very nice hike. Easy to start, but then it gets a little steep and rocky towards to very top. My puppy loved it! The summit view is absolutely beautiful for a hike that only takes about 45 minutes.

Loved the hike. We went at the end of December. It was a moderately cold and clear of snow but there was some icy areas. We were a group of 9 people ranging in age from 3 to 55. Plus a dog:) The 3 year old did some walking and climbing but had to be carried almost the whole time so I would not recommend bringing kids younger than 4-5! We had lots of fun and the view from the top is totally worth it.
