Great winter hike with the dog. Trail was marked well. You will cover a lot of elevation in a short period of time.

Well maintained trails and pleasant walk through beautiful woods.

Great easy hike, make sure you go to the second peak, as we almost stopped at the first thinking we were at the top. We came up from the mead base conservation Center.

Fantastic. Steady up the whole way and really beautiful.

excellent hike with amazing views

Good intermediate level hike. Rocky and rooty paths, if it was wet (but wasn't today) may be very slippery. All-trails app says it is a 3 mile hike but a sign at the beginning if the hike says it is 4 miles.

nice Mountain, more for distance climbing not much for elevation good starter warm up for the 4k training.

Lovely views of all of Squam Lake. You can hike from the bottom (as shown on this map), or drive up a gravel road for .9 miles and hike from the base of the Doublehead Trail only.

Moderate is a good label for this trail. Enjoyed it with my two sons (12 and 13) and my father (almost 70). It's a steady climb the whole way but is not overwhelming. It was a hot and humid day at the base but the trail was shaded the whole way with a beautiful breeze and gorgeous views at the summit. Don't get tricked by the false summit, keep hiking to the summit marker and you'll be rewarded with some beautiful mountain and lake views. It is longer than 3 miles, as others have stated already- the trail marker at the base says 2 miles to the summit.

A good hike, not too difficult and good views mid-way and at the top.

Easy trail with great views at the top. Perfect family hike. It was a super hot muggy day and the bugs were pretty unforgiving. This would be a great spring hike...lots of potential for small waterfalls along the trail.

Intense hike for a family. We saw a bear cross our path! Very few bugs. Well maintained.
