This is not the most challenging hike I have ever attempted, but it has several tough moments. I consider myself a well conditioned, tennis playing 58 year old and there were certainly some areas on the trail that created the ole leg burn and took...More

Nice hike for about 2 hours. From the ridge you have a nice overlook. But take care, you might meet a moose on your way.

My husband and I hiked to the top of Mt. Healy with our 20 year-old daughter. Easy for her but challenging for me! Enjoyed the views along the way and the wonderful panorama from the top. We started before noon and met a few hikers...More

This is not a particularly challenging walk as the trail is well marked, paved at the beginning and then a bit of climbing toward the end. The reward at the end is having great views across the park.

Nice walk in the woods for a great view of the town below and the entrance to the park. All uphill (then down) so not for the sedentary.

We hiked this trail and the views the entire time were wonderful. Make sure to bring water and snacks- be prepared in general. It took us probably 2.5 hours to do the whole trail and we stopped at the top to eat and take pictures....More
