Great hike. Trail head is about 0.6 miles up the Class VI road from the intersection of Half Moon Pond and Martin Rd. a 4WD vehicle could continue to a small parking area at the trail head. We parked at Martin Rd and walked in. The trail is in great shape, well trodden and blazed with white. The views from the top are a little underwhelming, too many trees for a clear view. Still a nice hike, might do it as a loop next time walking along Half Moon Pond Rd.

A short hike on a well-blazed trail up to a very nice summit. Hiked on a gorgeous, 78 degree July day. I did notice some bugs but had spray on and wasn’t too bothered. Parked just off Lovell Mtn Road at its intersection of Half Moon Pond Rd a short drive from Washington and did it as a quick up and back. If I did this hike again, I’d try making it a loop, going north on Half Moon Pond Rd, hooking into the Greenway and coming down the steep trail back to Lovell Mtn Rd and the car.

GPS led us down a class 6 road, ended up in the middle of nowhere with no trail in sight. Would’ve loved to do it but where the heck is it?

The trail was well marked and maintained. The views from the top were some of the best in the area. I did this with a buddy as part of a thru-hike of the Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway.

Trail maps brought us down old mountain rd which wasn’t accessible by car after a while. Turned around and went up half moon rd to where the trail starts which wasn’t nearly as bad but still bumpy. Buggy but nothing some bug spray and netting can’t help. Lots of shade along the way up and very peaceful. The top had better views than the lookout spot. All in all, it was a great first time here and would love to go again.

Parked at the beginning of Lovell Mountain Road. Walked on the road to the Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway, then took that to the summit of Lovewell Mountain. There were a lot of puddles on the road, but that’s pretty typical for May, I imagine it dries up later in the season. There were also a fair number of bugs, fortunately they didn’t seem to be biting. The Greenway was moderate overall, with level sections and moderately steep climbs. There’s a small overlook a little before the top, and there are decent views north and east from near the summit.

I have not hiked this trail yet, but will give it a 5 star based off other good reviews. I went there yesterday April 2nd to hike this trail. This trailhead is impossible to access with the snow. It is not plowed all winter! There is still tons of snow on the access road that is not possible to get through. The directions will bring you to a dirt road that you must drive about 5 miles on to the trailhead. After about 1 mile the road is no longer plowed. The only way to hike this in the snow would be to use another trailhead in the area and do a longer hike to this summit. I’ll attempt it once the snow melts

difficult due to fresh snow (7 inches a week ago) with 18 inch drifts. requires snowshoes. wonderful workout and views. no other hikers, so awesome.

Great view from the top. Narrow at some points but well blazed. The view up top offers a different perspective of the pillsbury state park area.

Great terrain clear path well maintained and gradual climb. There is a view but not a bald peak. We hiked up in 1 hour 10 minutes and down in less than 1 hour. Really good for dogs and a quick hike to keep your cardiovascular and muscles on par.

Th is is a great trail! It is well designed and interesting. There are some good views on the way up and especially on top. It is a steady, moderate climb. Be careful at the bottom before you turn and head up as this section of the trail is also used by 4x4 vehicles.

hiked up other side on this rainy day. Both treks are good hikes and you can loop the whole thing. Bumped into a group of Greenway hikers, all females which was cool

January 7th, 2017. I parked down on Half Moon Rd and hiked Lovewell Mtn Rd to the trailhead. The trailhead was well marked and the trail itself was well marked with white blazes and cairns. The assent was moderate and offered some nicely forested scenery along the way. The summit offered excellent views of Mt. Sunapee, to the north, and Mt Kearsage, to the east. Also of note, the Hemlocks on the summit were ornimented with ice.

One of my favorite places to hike in the area!

Note: Going in from this direction, Halfmoon Pond Road turns into a class VI road for the last half-mile or so, and there's a large, protruding rock near the start and many very deep puddles. My Corolla just barely had the clearance (and not for the large rock!). This trail is a nice mix of climbing, descending, and flat (all in the same direction) with great views at the top. I believe the two fire towers to the north and northeast are Cardigan and Kearsarge, respectively. My mapping app put this at 4.86 miles, not 4.0.

I bushwacked this trail from my friends remote cabin on ayers pond rd in east Washington. it was difficult and I was supposed to join the trail almost at the top but my gps showed the trail in the wrong spot. I eventually found it and made it to the top. Ive been going to that cabin for years and new I had to do lovewell. when I got to the top, I wasn't disappointed. I enjoyed the views, signed the log book and headed back down

This particular piece of the Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway ascends Lovewell Mountain. This was one highlight of the MSG for us. It was slippery when wet and foggy at the top but we saw a few mountains poking up through the fog. The moss and trees made us feel like we were at a much higher elevation in the White Mountains. We remarked as we passed through that this would be a nice place to return to on a day hike.

The trail was beautifully maintained with amazing views along the way! We hiked from the road to Lake Solitude! I would definitely recommend this hike for both beginner and experienced hikers! Experience hikers can continue on to the summit for more of a challenge and the beginners who may not choose to continue still get the gratification of making it to the look out point and then the lake! My 5 and 9 year old loved it!

Hike destination: Lovewell Mountain(2,400'), which from the Half Moon Pond Rd. trailhead, is a 4.6 mile out and back easy to moderate hike with a 925' elevation gain. The trail begins on a rough jeep road marked by white blazes which ascends gradually for .9 miles, then heads off to the left and continues for 1.4 miles to the summit. The white blazes and nicely built cairns near the ridge mark the trail well. Several wonderful views at summit.
