I have done a bunch of the "high peaks" in the ADK. Blue mountain is not considered one of them, but I have to say that the difficulty level of this one surpases most of the high peaks I have done.
The path is unusual, and is more like a dried up stream bed. Very rocky, and slippery in spots. It gives the trail charecter, and you definately wont be bored on your treck.
The view at the top was not too bad. Like someone else already mentioned, you can get a better or equal view from an easier hike. I wouldnt hike this mountain just for the view, thats certain, and the fire tower at the top is not the safest feeling structure in the world.
The hike is challenging, but fun, with an average view. Careful on your way back down, those smooth rock surfaces can be tricky!
