Great well marked trail...scenery on red loop near lake fantastic. Hope to come back someday and run the trail in summer/fall....when snow all gone lol. Did yellow, red and blue trails.

Beautiful loop in the woods and my dog loved it!

Great views. Well worth the hike!

Nice, well marked. people are not cleaning up after their dogs.

Short scrambly bit near the top, but otherwise very easy. Lovely view from the top, and the ruins if the old hut were great for taking a break out of the wind.

Decent hike, was looking to do some photography but nothing too astounding

Great place to go for a quick hike! Easy trail, simple to follow, my dog loved it!

Easy, straight trail. A little boring, but still a decent gravel trail.

Nice hike to the top of Mount Major. It starts gradually, then gets increasingly steeper until a little scrambling at the end. You start getting views part way up, and at the summit, there are great vistas of the Lakes Region, the White Mountains, and even Mount Washington on a clear day. Descends via the Boulder Loop Trail, which starts off easy, but lives up to its name in the middle section. The Boulder Loop Trail can be very wet (literally a stream) after a rainstorm.

Very nice hike, starts off gradual and gets increasingly steeper until a little scrambling near the end. Easily doable by nearly all ages, though, and you start getting views part way up. Great vistas on the summit of the Lakes Region, the White Mountains, and Mount Washington on a clear day. I have heard that it can get extremely crowded on weekends in the summer and fall, so plan your hike accordingly.

Always clean and friendly environment.

A short loop to some pretty views of Alton Bay, squam lake and lake winniepasuke.. The parking lot fills up quickly in the morning. A must do at sunrise.

Very slippery. Crampons or snowshoes help.

A very pretty and fairly easy hike. There were a few small scrambles and a lot of forest; it took us ~1.5 hours to do a round trip. There are quite a number of people here (at least in summer), but the views are worth it, and there's a nice spot for a picnic at the very top!

Was beautiful in the “winter wonderland”

Please note that this is open to cross country skiing ONLY. No hikers.

great Trails, nice hills and a view at tipling rock, dog friendly but on leash.

Loved this hike! Lots of well marked trails with scenic views. The peak view was pretty awesome, especially for such a low altitude, and included the Boston Skyline. There was even a decorated Christmas tree at the top. Sweet surprise.

Did this hike in October with my little pup. It was pretty quiet on the Tuesday morning but I can imagine that it would be incredibly busy most weekends, especially in the fall. We took the main trail up and the Brook Trail down. Amazing views of Winnipesaukee from the summit!

Love this trail so much! Awesome choice if you want to do a calm walk or to hack your horse and work on pace! Were some ATV’s most were very respectful other than a few (always got those). I highly recommend.

well-marked trail

We loved this, start at the location they recommend. Interesting river with an old mill, beaver lodges within feet of a river, two really pretty lakes, heap an ice cream at the barn in summer. Lots of trails to explore. A real gem

Great ponds, so pretty and interesting terrain. Doggie heaven. Blue trail is my fav, adding yellow trail for a hike to
The peak.
Take a map, it's easy to get confused with all the trails. Fairly well traveled so no worries

Easy to get to, beautiful trail, need the GPS to navigate.

Easy to follow very well maintained

Flat and easy. Also easy to accidentally follow the wrong trail. It’s pretty. Nothing amazing but nothing unpleasant.
