Nice hike that offer some good views from the top. I've heard that it's easier to do it counterclockwise but we did it clockwise and didn't find it too bad.

Great hike, but it is seriously like climbing a flight of stairs. The knees did not like it! Great view for the amount of time it takes to get there though. We did it late afternoon and had a great time.

Approx 3 miles loop trail, parking at the base, $5 per car. My suggestion is take the left trail up, it spaces out the elevation inclines. This is approx 2100 feet gain in elevation throughout the hike, so bring snacks! Probably take about 2-3 hours,...More

We had intended to hike up Tuckerman's to the cascades or even further but it was very snowy up high still so we went with plan B. Loved seeing the covered bridge, and no bugs out yet.

We enjoyed the walk w/ friends and family (kids as well). Covered bridge was a sight to see on it's own. We located the boulder which we think the loop is named after.

Wow, beautiful but the guides rate it as easy. Maybe for some but not for us & we are in pretty good shape. 3 miles with the last 1/2 mile pretty much straight up. BUT once you get to the top the views are amazing!

This hike has a great starting point at the Albany covered bridge. The counterclockwise route is steeper but still quite easy. Views are nice but not as good as some other nearby hikes of similar difficulty.
