Well maintained trail and a hearty moderate hike up the mountain. It is a 1,200 ft or so elevation change. The Flume trail loop across the street is rated moderate and in my view you can't use that to gauge this hike, as Mt. Pemigewasset is more strenuous and a true moderate hike. We loved this hike. The summit is amazing and we spent an hour enjoying the views.
Beautiful hike...great trail across a river bed...nice upward hike through the woods....vein fed path lovely, turned into a nice steep climb with a great clearing. Then on to the top. A nice climb not too hard really got you breathing . Nice sights.Well worth the short hike.
Tough trail but totally worth it. It is a solid 8 hour hike. We did the falling waters trail to the Franconia ridge trail and back down the old bridal trail. Be forewarned that even once you reach the top of the ridge there is still lots of scrambling up rocks as you cross the ridge. We are in our mid fifties and mostly saw folks 1/2 our age attempting the entire loop.
A wide, well maintained trail (a part of the Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway Trail) that allows two hikers to walk abreast with ease. Little elevation gain (300 ft at most). Howe dam is the start of the Liza-Adams Gorge and at that point there is a smaller trail that follows the gorge to another pond. Not a lot to see but it is a quiet and serene walk. The Spiltoir Shelter of the MSGT is on this trail as you head north from Route 101 (about 3/4 of a mile from 101). If you do the trail from Rt. 101 and add the gorge trail your distance is increased to about 3.8 miles.
