Great Challenging Hike

An amazing but challenging hike with the family. The views are amazing. Be prepared for some mild bouldering. Overall, a great hike for children and adults alike.

Beautiful view. Several hiking trails. Worth the effort to go up the mountain to see the view. Crowded in the summer.

Hiked the Indian Trail easy to moderate terrain, other trails more challenging but great views make the effort worth it.

Indian Trail is the easiest way up. Trails are nicely blazed but are rutted and have lots of stones to step around. Other trails are more narrow. Squaw Peak was crowded. View better than Mt Greylock but not as nice as I expected. If you have a person not doing well half way along Indian trail, turn back and take... More

My whole family, myself, husband & two kids (11 & 12) really enjoyed this hike. There were some difficult spots, but the views are worth the effort (especially Devil's Pulpit). We enjoy geocaching & there is ample opportunity for this activity. It was a great 1/2 day activity!

I loved this mountain. Views were splendid. It was hard work but it had a great reward! I suggest this for people who are in moderately good shape. I climb mountains regularly and was huffing and puffing toward the top! I would love to do it again!

Not a bad hike, but it does get repetitive after a while, all the hikes. Up down up down slippery rocks another dog not on a leash.

Lovely mountain walk, dramatic scenery, well worth a couple of morning hours. Lovingly maintained - a good feeling to the place - especially around Devil's Pulpit at the top.

Very nice hike once you get away from the noise of Route 7. There are some spots that are steep,, but manageable

This mountain offers 4 trails of varying difficulty. Indian Monument trail is the easiest and is 1.5 miles. It goes to the top. There is the Hickey Trail. (.8 mile) that is more strenuous only because it becomes steep but has a very clear path (no climbing over rocks, branches, etc.). This meets up with the Indian Trail and becomes... More
