Brook trail is really dangerous if it is wet at all. Do not recommend descending from Chocorua via Brook trail. Even if you are quite fit and have good gear, I would recommend a different route.

Great trail! The last mile of Liberty (and the first mile and a half of Brook coming back down) are a scramble and a workout, but the views at the top are amazing. Would not recommend coming down Brook alone or after a particularly rainy period. Wear shoes with good traction.

Great trail. Some fun and difficult scrambles, but mostly medium difficulty. Never found the waterfall. Would do again and camp in the Jim Liberty Cabin.

Loved it, difficult but fun. Work is worth the reward. Bottom was good, lots of elevation to flats to catch a break from the climb. Top was difficult. Sometimes putting the hands down to keep tight and stable. Lots of traversing across rock faces, but the view was incredible enough to let the sweat and sore muscle fade.

Great views. The grade and final scramble are what earn the “hard” difficulty rating. If I did it again I’d probably go out and back on the liberty trail. Descending on the brook trail, I found it less well marked, with many more patches of smooth, slightly steep (and in my case, wet) granite in the top 0.5-1 mile.

24 and 29 year old, experienced hikers. Took us about 2 hours to peak going up Liberty at a good pace. Peaking was a blast towards the top. You get the classic rock face, and some gold climbing parts. Stopped on the top for lunch and 2 more times on the way down on the Brooke Trail to hangout. Brought two large Pit-Bull mixes, both experienced hikers. Both dogs had to be hoisted at at least once along trail. Be prepared to be able to help your dog up at places. Cabin was really cool going up Liberty, definitly a nice place to camp. overall, great trail.

Not the easisest. Not recommeded if you're out of shape. But the view is amazing - not just at the peak, but also at a few other points en route.

This hike was amazing! My friend and I loved this loop trail as well, you are mostly on a flat treeline for most of if with steep elevation gain as you approach the top but we had a great time! There were a lot of bald face rocks that if you don’t have hiking boots may be harder to scale, but overall 10/10 if you are looking for a great day hike, took us 5 hours and we are by no means professionals, and amazing views!!

Loved this hike! My phone died while recording it unfortunately, so I guess I'll just have to come back. Went up brook and down liberty! Amazing views.

Beautiful and moderately challenging hike. Steep from the beginning. Incredible varieties of moss. A good challenge for folks who don’t do a lot of hiking. Yellow blazes faded in many places but trail is mostly obvious. Fantastic 180 degree views. Had the company of red tail hawks at summit.

Took the Liberty trail up and back with kids as young as 10 years (they made it to the top in 1.5 hours) and adults 53 years, me, who made it to the top in 2.5 hours and loved the trail. it is fairly easy for most of the hike. Then you see the rock top and think, can I actually climb that? The answer is yes, it's no where as challenging as it looks but there is on spot that's tricky. Where boots with good grip or go barefoot at the tricky spot. The 360 degree view at the summit is magnificent, mountains and lakes in all directions and 2 eagles playing below was magical.

Went up Brook Trail and down Liberty. Amazing views.

Went up Brook Trail out and back. Took us 6 hours on the nose, and the distance given by the Forest Service information pamphlet was 7.2 miles round trip. The first section was wooded and fairly easy grade- once you got to the rock ledges it was very steep going all the way to the top. Good shoes a must, and don’t try this trail in wet weather! There were lots of great views once you started the rocky scramble, and the summit has a 360 degree view. Definitely a beautiful hike!

My 6 year old son and I hiked the Liberty trail out and back. I decided because of the length of this trail, we’d choose Liberty both ways over the trickier ascent up Brook and then down liberty, even though the Brook/Liberty loop would have shaved off a little distance. For anyone considering the appropriateness for younger children, my son has hiked Kearsarge and Monadnock before. This was his longest hike to date , and although quite taxing in the last two miles because of the shear distance, he made it to the summit and back. The hike itself has some fun, light scrambling at the top, but it’s easier than than formidable looking peak eludes to. The lower trail is not taxing and is easy to follow, even though it’s not marked until above the tree line. Conditions were fine with minimal mud and water, but it was buggy. Bug spray is a MUST. Other reviews are correct that the trail is not crystal clear once you get close to above the tree line. It’s not that there aren’t sufficient markings, they’re just quite worn and faded. I was a bit worried about this after reading other reviews but we didn’t have any problems. As noted by others, Be sure to descend carefully and find the appropriate trail markings on the way down. We drifted left of the trail junction just below the summit and had to back track for about two minutes to pick up the Liberty trail. The summit payoff is amazing with captivating views in all directions! Well worth it!! My understanding is that these trails are less used because the trail head is accessed through a few miles of dirt road and is not close to the main routes. This would make sense but I’d say it’s worth it. There is not room for more than 30ish cars at the trail head in my estimate so get there early. We were one of only 7 or 8 cars at 7:30am. Even on this beautiful August day, however, we only encountered a dozen other parties in the trail.

Great little loop, recommend doing Brooktrail coming down as it is steeper towards the mountain and flatter for a longer period of time towards the bottom, liberty Trail is more of a slower steady or climb going up the hallway. Abundant water while climbing until above tree line, still recommend bringing freshwater. Great 360° views of the White Mountains

Up Liberty Trail and down Brook Trail. Mosquitoes were horrible the first 1.5 on Liberty Trail. The view at the top was amazing.
