What a great hike. Started up with the loop trail. Challenging and not recommended for dogs or children. As an experienced hiker, even I had a few moments of needing a quick break. The summit was delightful and many spots to explore once there. Hands...More

This modest 3,000-foot mountain offers a big New England mountain hiking experience. It's a best bang for the buck hike. We took the Tumbledown Brook trail to the top. Easy first mile gives way to much steeper climb over boulder fields and numerous waterfalls. Alpine...More

Summer time swim in the high Alpine Pond, picnic above treeline on a craggy overlook. Multiple trail options make this a repeat adventure that can include several other peaks.

Excellent views. Many options to climb. I prefer to go up Little Jackson Mountain next door and then hike down to the alpine lake for a refreshing swim.

We took the brook trail to summit which is the quickest way to the top, the last quater mile was tough but we'll worth the hike. Spectacular views and the pond was beautiful! Approximately 3 1/2 hours out and back. One of my favorite hikes.
