Great hike, 3 different options to go to the peak. I believe the red was the most direct/difficult path. Amazing views

Amazing views of the lakes around you. Saw some wildlife and also got to eat some WILD BLUEBERRIES which are scattered ALL OVER the top of this mountain.

We took the Main trail (blue trail) to go to the summit and it took us an hour and 30 minutes. It was a little confusing as the blue marks where not present in some cases. It was very slippery and I was wearing Merrell moab ventilator. The view on the top was awesome. While returning, we took the brook trail and it was very simple. If you take Main trail or Boulder trail, sturdy shoes is a must.

Good trail. Took the Brook trail as first time hiking in a couple years. Has a couple taxing spots for cardio but not terrible. Couple quick stops but very nice views at top.

Family of 4, Parents and 2 boys (9 and 6). Started at 9am up the Boulder Trail on a Saturday. Weather was perfect, parking lot almost full. Went up Boulder Trail (orange trail) and came down Brook (yellow) Took 3 hours. Not many people on the way up but crowded the way down. Boulder was harder than expected and doubt we could have come down it. Had a great time.

We did the blue trail while visiting NH for vacation. Lots of large and small boulders on the blue trail so watch your step. I twisted my ankle a few times going back down. Beautiful views at the top!! Not easy if you're out of shape, which I am lol.. But well worth it.

Great hike! There are three trails that lead to the summit- we took the orange trail or Boulder Loop Trail up and the yellow trail or Brook Trail down. The Brook Trail looked like it may have been a little easier to hike up than the Boulder loop b/c there didn't seem to be as many large rocks. I would call both trails moderately strenuous. We brought our corgis and they did great.
We got there at 9:30 and there were a couple of parking spaces left. The trails were not too busy but the top was pretty crowded. The view was amazing and was definitely worth the hike, even with the crowds. The total trip including a rest at the top took about 3.5 hours.

We went in Mid August. Mt Major has some of the best views. We did the boulder trail up and it was quite difficult. from there we extended our hike over to Straightback and over to Anna. When we came back we went down the brook trail which was pretty easy but longer
