TheHikerDog's review here a few pages back is the most accurate. I'm a 63-year-old, fairly experienced hiker, and I found this hike tough, both on the way up and down. Brings lots of water and carb snacks! It took me, my 2 daughters (in their...More

Great hike. Easy to follow (marked very clear), it took less time than advertised (3 hrs. 15 minutes total). Incredible views from top of the firetower at top. Enjoy!

Great moderate hike with spectacular views. I took just under 2 hours up and 1.5 down and saw a mother and two bear cubs near the summit attempting to cross the trail in front of the stone chimney, until I screamed and they retreated! Highly...More

We are healthy 69 year olds and this certainly a challenge. Two hours and 15 minutes in each direction. You really have to watch your footing on the way done as there are many tree roots and rocks. We only went up to the first...More

Done this one a couple of times with the dog - takes me around 1 hour 40 minutes from bottom to top (dry conditions, late summer, early fall). It will get your heart beating especially as you get closer to to the top and I...More

It's quite a hike up the mountain... hardly Olympic, but way more than a casual stroll. Steep and long, though terrain is pretty manageable.

This is a 3+ hour hike uphill to the top Mt. Okemo where you can then climb up the restored old firetower to gain a view over the tree tops of surrounding valleys & fields. There are no special views along the way but it...More
