Pine Mountain Trail ist ein 3.4 Meilen langer, moderat besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Gorham, New Hampshire. Er führt durch schönen Wald, vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt schöne Wildblumen und oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als moderat einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und ein Ausflug in die Natur unternommen werden.

Pleasant short hike with great views of the Presidential Range. I recommend doing the steep climb on the way up. Bench at Chapel view is great for a picnic!

A group of 10 of us at different activity levels did the trail from the Gorham side by the cemetery. We made it to a bout .75 miles to the top. 3 of our group were having trouble with the ascent...and we had several who were worried about the descent as there was an area right before the first look out that was steep and the trail was still slightly wet from the rain storm from 2 days prior. We had taken the recommendation that you had to go up from this side. We didn't want to split up the group. 2 of our very athletic members did a run to the top to scope it out. They did state very amazing views, but executive decision was made based on the 3 members to start the descent back down the Gorham side, as we weren't sure how technical the descent on the Dolly Copp side would be (we considered sending half the group that way while the other group went down the Gorham side to grab the cars and meet the other group on the Dolly Copp side. I think Moderate is an adequate description, but other reviews really mislead us about the length of the hike from the Gorham side...it was a good 3+ just up and we hadn't reached the top. We had expected the 3.4 total. I would definitely go back and try from the Dolly Copp side...and even the Gorham side again with a different group and more prepared for the longer hike. I have to say after being deceived by reviews and then again on our third hike by the AMC information personnel at Pinkham notch...I really feel like to get an accurate assessment we have to send out a recon group to hike it first, to assess for full group capability.

The first time we tried to hike this mountain, we started on the graveyard trailhead (by the gravel pit). It was overgrown and the bugs were so bad we had to turn around. We decided to finish this mountain, and started on the Dolly Copp side. There were two large piles of fresh bear scat in front of the trailhead. After a quick google to refresh on black bear encounter protocol, we decided to do it anyway. As opposed to the opposite side of the mountain, this hike is essentially a mile on a dirt road, and .8 miles which cover the entire 800 ft of elevation gain. The views on the ascent trump the (non) view at the summit; great view of the presidentials.

To really enjoy this trail you MUST start from the Gorham trailhead and NOT the dirt road from Dolly Copp Road! Go past the cemetery on Promenade St, take the gravel road for .1 mile and park at the trailhead or the gravel pit. Use the entrance with the hiker sign and not the unmarked one 100 feet to the right near the gravel pit. Hike through woods, then an open area and turn left onto a woods road, carefully following the arrows for about .25 mile uphill where the trail bears right into the woods . The trail itself is varied and winds through nice open woods with a few moderately steep sections but these are short. You can choose just to visit the summit and its 3 outlooks along with the Chapel Rock spur and then return that way. But I prefer to run down the dirt road for about a mile and take the Ledge Trail back up to the summit. It's got a few moderate scrambles and the real feel of a more exposed hike but with no difficult hand holds. The complete loop this way is almost 7 miles so you'll feel like you worked pretty hard! Not much direct sun means the rocks are mossy and there are plentiful roots so footing is more tricky than you would expect, especially when wet.

I really enjoyed this trail. It has a few steep parts that help you break a sweat and you don’t have to reach the summit to see a panoramic, beautiful view. I also recommend making a small detour to Chapel View (you’ll see a sign for it). I’d happily hike this trail again. I do recommend not going when it could possibly be wet. There are lots of rocks that would make it easy to slip when they’re a bit slick.

Nice, short hike with reward views of Mt. Madison. Ledge trail was steep but not too difficult. Enjoyable hike when you are looking for a few hours of hiking with fantastic views.

This is a great hike if you don't have all day! Short, steep trail with a great view. My dog is new to hiking but didn't have much difficulty.

This trail was very fun and challenging at some parts, but very doable even for a 50 year old woman with little experience. Poles did help a lot and would recommend using them for the steeper parts. We did the whole loop starting on the dirt road. However, when you reach the sign that says pine mountain 0.6 (miles), if you plan on doing the whole loop, you should go up that way because it takes you to the summit quicker, and it’s easier going up the steep end rather than going down it. There were multiple views, all of which were amazing and you should definitely take the 10 minute detour to chapel rock. Overall, a very fun hike with a great payoff.

Excellent short hike with great views. A little steep through the scrambles but not too bad. Our Aussie loved it!

As others have said, part of the trail is a dirt road. Don't let it deter you though - hike via the ledge trail and the views of the Presidential are amazing with great lookout spots for lunch/snacks. Scrambles were great. Completed with two Aussies and both did great.

A really nice hike. A little buggy and there are some steep sections and fun rocks to climb - great for those looking for a light hike and/or kids. The views are great and the Chapel View is very peaceful with both a shelter and a beautiful bench! Bunchflowers are out and sweet birds calls to listen to. I liked the dirt road sections - also peaceful and pretty with wild flowers along the way.

If u push itself this is a challenging climb. Did the out and back in 2 hrs. Summit was worth every drip of sweat. Downhill was difficult as the terrain was wet from the days before rain. Overall it ‘‘twas a terrific almost 4 mile hike!

The trail starts and ends with a walk down a dirt road. Kind of boring. The uphill leg is a bit steep but the view at the top is worth it. Plenty of places up near the top to take a lunch break and just sit and enjoy the view. There is a shelter on the downhill side just before the turn on the map. Didn’t make it to chapel rock. Overalll good. Not too hard. But be aware of the rock climbs near the top sections. Use Caution if its slippery .

We did the Pine Mountain Trail from Gorham, starting from Union Street. It’s about 2.4 mile one-way. Views are amazing from the top. Make sure to go to Chapel Rock.

Great but too much dirt road before the real trail.

I love this hike. Very light moderate with some climbing at the end. Great views! Make sure to side trail it to Chapel Rock... worth it! Took me about 3.5 hours including about 45 of resting/exploring the views time

Someone said it earlier, road to the path was a yawn, but the trail itself was amazing. Challenging for sure going up the ledge trail but nice and easy route back to the car. That’s were able to scramble up easily. AMAZING VIEWS!!!!!

Great views for a relatively small payout. I've hiked it in all kinds of weather. Be careful if it's raining. The trail requires navigating up a smooth, open rock incline that can be quite slick when wet. Great views of the northern side of the Presedentials as well as Gorham, NH up top.

Great view, not crowded

Wonderful views of the changing colors. A good hike with some steep climbs.

1/2 on a dirt road - yawn, 1/2 the best trail around.
