At least 12 times... summer & winter
I think we hit the Vermont Teddy Bear Factory and Ben and Jerry's on the way back to the hotel. It guess it's a very well located mountain.
side trip to tag it during 1976 AT thru hike
Two unmitigated peak baggers would not be deterred by a little rain storm and hiked up to the summit anyway. I loved the whole area, Smugglers Notch very interesting in a "Headless Horseman" kinda way.
Although the summit can often be very crowded (with people and radio towers), the multitude of trails up the peak make it a blast to hike. Try the Halfway house to canyon trails for an exciting route to the top. Be ready to shed your pack though, and push it through the caverns you have to crawl through! Enjoy!
My wife and I enjoyed the hike to the top and back.
Did this highpoint with my wife and our 4 month old son. Great views from both sides of the mountain.
Took the Long Trail to the summit with a friend. Windy and cold, but clear with great views! HP #20!
Climbed this mountain twice in the summer of 2004, both times using the Long Trail. I had great weather for both trips, and had fantastic views from the top. You could easily see the Adirondacks and the White Mountains, as well as the Champlain valley.
my wife and i loved this mountain. first succesful climb over 4000ft. we also did camel's hump 2 days later and found out 5 days later that she was 3.5 months pregnant!
Climbed up the Long Trail and the Chin. Was stuck in clouds at the top. Traversed over to the auto road parking lot where my wife was picking me up. Wouldn't you know the clouds cleared as soon as I got over there. Thought about going back, but nah... #24 on my state highpoint list
the sunset ridge trail at sunset is a must
been up many times but my favorite trail is hellbrook. relentlessly steep all the way with awesome views of the summit from the adams apple. the best hike in vermont!
did a nice snow ascent Nov. 5, 06. alot of snow!
met a really nice couple from canada. clear skies
Camped for Labor Day weekend at Underhill State Park. Busy day at the summit (because the weather was gorgeous).
After having to wait until 10:00 AM for the toll road to open (don't rich Vermont people get up?), we drove to the visiter center about 1.5 miles from the summit. A CD entertained us along the steep drive ("You're on it!"). The hike from the VC is pretty easy and was very crowded. The views were wonderful as the clouds were only brief and fleeting. Overall, a pleasant experience (good campsite at the State Park off 108, too).
Stayed at Taft Lodge, loop to Nose
Beautiful day out, a little hazy but amazing views. Saw very few people on the trail, but the summit was a little crowded with people coming from the toll road. Great mountain, definitely one to climb again.
very fun trail. Got hit with very strong winds as we got up towards the summit, what a blast. Atleast we didn't get much rain that day.
