Well maintained. Beautiful place. Bring your dog, but don't fish there....not allowed. Great hikes. Lots of Beavers, frogs, toads, salamanders! Go hike the mountain, but wear your hiking boots, you'll need them on your way back down. The views from the mountain are spectacular!

Lovely smooth trails through snowy woods was beautiful. Rolf Anderson, owner, was the best. Very helpful and kind during our visit. A unique, out of the way experience I will want to repeat again.

We went to Hazen's Notch for snowshoeing. The price was just $5 since the trails hadn't been groomed from the recent snowfall. We were given a trail map and some directions. We got a little lost, but the trails are lovely and its a nice hike. A few extra trail signs would be useful, especially if the trails hadnt been... More

This is a very beautiful narrow winding road through the notch. beautiful farm country sides at each end of the notch before entering the higher elevations. Up in the notch, nice waterfalls and deep forest. Shady and cool even on the hottest days.

We enjoyed the well groomed trails in Hazen's Notch and the hike up to the summit with the 360 views of mountains all around must be amazing in fall.

During the summer and fall, this is a lovely drive. In the winter, this is where we go to cross country ski. The trails are not crowded and provide both wooded skiing and great views. The fact that this is a small operation is part of the appeal for us. The trails will not be as well groomed as larger... More

a trip down the Hazens Notch Rd takes you through the notch; a breath-taking cut into the mountain range that is best seen during foliage season but also spectacular in Spring and Summer. Road is closed at the notch during the Winter months. Bring your camera for this scene!

Great for cross country skiing too!! This is one of the prettiest drives for montgomery center visitors. We own a small bed and breakfast, and most of our guests visit this area even in the winter where they can go cross country skiing or snow shoeing at Hazens Notch Cross Country Ski Center. There are wonderful hiking trails we have... More
