Easy and rewarding.

Nice walk for the dog. Not many scenic areas but relaxing. Should be rated as easy rather than moderate.

Edit to my other post: the whole route is not closed, just the route to the left from the parking lot. Sorry for any confusion.

This route is closed as far as I know. There is a house being built here and the only way up the mountain is the fire tower loop towards the right of the parking lot. Still a good hike but a bummer that section has been cut off. Hopefully there will be some rerouting?

nice and easy trails that lead to a beautiful waterfall!

yay finding mushrooms

Great hike up. Really easy climb and great views at the top. There's a fire tower to climb. I think it took me an hour round trip.

good walk with the dog. other dogs off leash made it more difficult. not much water for the falls but balancing Rock is cool.

Not a bad little trail if you want a couple of hours to kill nothing hard about it.

Great and convenient place for a light trail run or an easy hike. The trails are well labeled too.

Back to hike the red loop! One pretty steep section, but otherwise a great couple miles in the woods with plenty of stops along the water as you head back upstream toward the falls. Also took a spoke out on a trail marked with bars like the Dutch flag; decided to turn around and head back to the red loop when the trail became too steep for small children.

Nice loop but there is a section along the fence which had not been maintained and had several spots with thorns to push through. Other than that it was a great walk.

Very nice setting and great area at the falls to let the pup go on for a swim.

Love this trail. My husband and I go here a few times a month with our dogs. It gives a decent work out without kicking your butt pending your fitness level. The dogs love it and we don't have to worry about tons of people on the trails.

So the map for this one is no longer accurate, or is soon to change. While we were there the other day we noticed a posting from the state saying that parts of the trail were going to be closed due to trails being damaged by hikers and getting washed out. It was the part from the last parking lot that headed around the lake. We were very disappointed when we got there to find that the little bridge over the water had been removed. I guess we could have hopped over to the other side since the concrete foundations were still there and close together. The other trails here were really nice but a bit long.

Beautiful view and well marked trails

Took my kids (almost 5 and almost 3) on the full loop. Trail clockwise from the parking area right near the pond is very muddy in places, narrow, and highly unmarked. Hillside was a difficult climb with small kids, but we made it. SELT loop back down the other side is much wider and more maintained with trail markers and bridges over streams. Continued the loop out to the road instead of trying to climb back down right near the pond; adds a little to the overall distance but is much safer.

Great trail, mostly easy but with some more challenging spots that make it fun. Amazing views at the top; I definitely need to bring my camera next time! Please be prepared to bring your trash out with you; keep NH trails beautiful!

Took my kids (4.5 and 2.5) on the Winnie the Pooh loop. So cute! My kids were super excited to go from sign to sign and location to location along the trail. Great fun for all ages.

great trail takes me about 45 minutes to complete.

Can’t wait to go back and hit the other trails off the main one

Ehhhh, nothing to write home about, probably won’t go back and it is more of a walk and was quite buggy. If I wasn’t using the gps I would have been lost for hours!

ok, decent trail, not clearly marked though.
