This trail 1.9 miles to to top so it is a total of 3.8 out and back. It is well marked & VERY steep!- there is also a marked side trip along the way (beginning) you can check out some old Lyme Kilns - hence the name Lyme Kiln Rd where the trail head is located - they are a marked historic sight.

Excellent hike, gets pretty steep a mile in but offers an excellent view from the summit. You can also access the summit from the slightly easier but not as scenic Black Mountain trail.

Beautiful lookouts all the way up. Great conditioning trail for the serious hiker. Also right in my backyard and the first trail I did on a "real" mountain

Excellent climb! Wonderful views from the ledges. A bonus was the old Lime Kilns dated back to the 1800's.

Starts out downhill then climbs moderately for 0.7 miles Next 0.7 miles is fairly steep climb up rocks and roots. Not too difficult. Then starts to climb with intermittent steep stretches with easy moderate grades over ledges in between. Many view from short side trails in this stretch. Last section dips down into the woods and climbs to junction with the Black Mtn trail near the summit. The summit is a long stretch of ledges and cliffs with very nice views form the Kinsmans in the North to Moosilaukee, south to Kearsarge, and Sunnapee.

Amazing but extremely steep. Not for beginners lol which I am but I made it all the way up and back barely. Great views along the way up and down, down is slippery here and there on all the pine needles. But worth it.
