Mount Watatic Trail

Hiked all my life. Nearing 70 so slowing down a bit. Mt Watatic multiple times and all seasons. Sometimes with small grandchildren. Always with 14 year old, small, 4 legged princess except in dead of winter. Nice easy hike for exercise and peace of mind. Everything said in other reviews is true. Nothing to add other than confirm parking is limited and can be very crowded on weekends and holidays. Being fairly local and retired those concerns are not a problem but would be with a family to see foliage. I've met younger people who run the trails daily for exercise so not terribly difficult. A real gem.

My daughter and hiked a portion of this trail while on vacation. We really enjoyed the hike. Overcast day so views were not fantastic. Great exercise and very enjoyable hike. Would love to return when leaves are turning.

Nice easy trail; I'm by no means a seasoned hiker and I completed in about an hour and a half or so. (I came up the Wapack and down State Line.) The views from the summit are really something. My main gripe would be how crowded it was–there were nearly always other hikers in my line of sight for the duration of the hike. While I'm not sure it's one I would feel the need to revisit anytime soon, I think it would be great for walking the dog, or a good option for a family with young kids.

Came up the dirt road trail from the nh side. Was a good long steep trail to walk up. Came to the top to c a great view then walked over to the further out hump at the top to c a even better view! Great place to hike with friends for a good 360 view!

I'm certainly not an experienced hiker but here are my two cents. My wife and I have recently made a commitment to hit more trails and more often. We started off our 2013 year with a hike up Mt. Watatic. We got there nice and early around 9AM which I really recommend, on our descent we came across a lot of people heading up and there were many cars parked on RT. 119. We ascended on the State Line Trail (marked blue) and descended on the Wapack Trail (marked yellow). Overall a great hike, pitch was moderate and there were no real footing issues. On the way down there were certainly some rocks and tree roots but if you pay attention you're good to go. The summit is beautiful and we were blessed with great visibility. Like I said, I am not an experienced hiker so as we hit the summit I was not aware of what was in the distance in terms of land marks and state lines.

This is a nice easy to moderate trail offering great views a the summit. I've seen families, novices, and dogs manage the trail well. I have also enjoyed snowshoeing here. There are some steep parts, which maybe too difficult for old dogs.

Most of the trail is great but there is one part north of Blueberry Hill that is in clear cut and is very difficult to find where the trail goes from there.
