“Nice short hike!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

This hike is a very short hike with beautiful 360 degree views at the top! It seems very popular but was not over crowded. There are a few different trails you can take to the top with varying degrees of difficulty. The trails are well maintained and marked with exception of one spot at the top of the squam trail.

“Fun family hike with a great reward at the TOP!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2014

MM is a great family hike for all levels. Once you reach the summit, there is an amazing view of the Berkshires that can't be beat! Every season offers a different and rewarding scenery.

“Nice hike”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014

Nice walk, even if given the time of the year I visited it was most buggy place ever. Mosquitos everywhere, even in my mouth!

“Awesome short hike”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

We took the more challenging route up and it was about 3 miles round trip. Views are great from the top and it's a good work out.

“A great hiking experience.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2014

This was a challenging climb for us as we are not experienced hikers. Yet, it was very doable and fun. Once we reached the top, the views were amazing.
Definitely recommend this for someone who wants to experience hiking in the area. There are trees marked with blue dots throughout the trail so you know you are walking the right way.
