This is a great hike! It's doable in a morning or an afternoon. It's very vertical but the pay off is huge. Kids and pets can manage it. I would recommend going mid-morning and bringing lunch to the top. It takes about an hour to hike up and the view is incredible! So glad we did it.
It's only .6 of a mile in, but it's all uphill, so this is a real "hike"--though it requires no technical skills. The view from the cliffs is phenomenal--270 degrees around, a great reward for making it up. Best short hike in Vermont.
This is an easy to get to location with a short hike up to some great views from the cliffs. The hike itself is nice and short, around .6 miles, but there is about 600 feet elevation gain so you do need to work a bit to get there. Luckily the reward at the end is worth it!
