Excellent woodland walk with the reward of amazing views at the top loved it
Moderate hiking trail, well-trafficked but not heavy for a Saturday around 12:30pm in October. We went up the right side of the loop since we had read it was the steeper ascent. The right side of the loop features more stone steps. I enjoyed going this route because, by the time you reach the lookouts, you've past the halfway point/summit (which did not feature a view). The views were nice for the effort and length of the hike, but there may be other trails with an even better payoff (this was my first hike in the White Mountains). Overall, exerted some effort and found the hike enjoyable.
I loved this trail and was able to get up with little difficulty. I haven't hiked in over 3 years and I'm in my mid 50s. Pretty easy coming down. We took the turn to the right which is a bit steeper going up. Amazing views at the top. One of the best hikes I've done.
Great hike...tough for kids
The Boulder Loop Trail lives up to its name (boulders everywhere). A good moderately strenuous hike. Don't miss the pay off by making it up to the ledges. Great views. Saw rock climbers on the cliffs opposite the ledges. Great visibility on a clear day as we had today. Would definitely like to come back in the fall.
Good trail, gets steep but views at top are worth it. Wouldn't recommend for young children.
Hike was a nice 2 hour hike with incredible open views on top. I would rate this hike on the easy side of moderate.
What a view from the top!!! I took the trail by the steepest and didn't regret it because it was!! (just go ahead when you see the sign for the Ledgers instead of left). That was a moderate trail with a 10 min tougher before the summit. My 2 chihuahuas did well but they are in good shape.
When we entered the trail head we kept right and found this direcrion to be more steep and rocky than if we had gone left, but it made the hike down very easy! This is a great little loop with a decent view.
We must have gone up the difficult side-beautiful views on top, coming down much easier. Would advise hiking poles if doing the loop.
great hike, dogs loved it. slightly difficult with them on leash.
nice hike. lots of killer bugs. haha
Brought our dog and had a great time! We are semi-beginner hikers who consider ourselves in good shape. This got a bit difficult at times (mostly due to keeping a good hold on our dogs leash) but we made it up the trail in about an hour. Spectacular views. Doggy loved it. Was extremely buggy when we went around the end of May, almost made the top unbearable. Wear bug spray and long layers, we got bit up pretty badly.
Easy hike with great views!
Nice easy trail for a quick hike or even quicker run. Was there at dawn, day before yesterday, and came across a mother bear and her two cubs! Thankfully they ran the other way :-0
Awesome nice easy hike great views
