Great fall hike to lake solitude with our dog! Two miles up and then a little extra to get to the white cliffs viewpoint -- absolutely gorgeous.
Loved this trail. Lake Solitude from the white cliffs was absolutely worth it. After the white cliffs the trails wrangles around to the ski slope side. Nothing really to see over there except a glimpse of Lake Sunapee from the ski slopes. Not worth the extra 2 miles there and back.
Great hike! I live in suburban Boston and this hike is great for a quick day trip. It was amazing to come to the top and see the lake. Once you hit the base of the pond, keep to the right to get to the top of the cliff where there is an amazing view. I would recommend this to low experienced hikers.
A fun and quick hike. Loved Lake Solitude. Easy to follow trail; well marked, well maintained and well defined. The summit of Sunapee, which is actually the ski lodge, is kind of a disappointment. Really no need to go past the overlook, that looks down onto solitude, unless looking to add distance to the hike.
It was cool walking through the section of the maple lines and there are quite a few brook crosses.

Great easy day hike with dogs. Plan to see many, many dogs. Lots of water for them to tear around in, but also get nice and gross...
