HikingGreat!

This is my absolute favorite hike. Hands down. Just an incredible view. Took my 3 dogs and had my weighted vest on. Was able to run some of the trails - also encountered a moose. Had the whole place to ourselves. Highly recommend.

Fantastic hike. Good one to get your heart pumping. Went on a Tuesday so it was just us on the summit! No ice or big mud spots to worry about. Happy trails!

Great hike! Not a ton of parking, so keep that in mind. It was fairly challenging for us as we haven't been hiking all winter, but it was still doable. Basically no ice left currently. View from the top is actually more to the north, but you'll still get some peeks of Squam Lake on the way up. Took us about 3 hours, with plenty of breaks on the way up.

Fantastic workout and views. Very well maintained. Go up Dot and down Cross. More like 4.4 miles if you go all the way to summit. Don’t forget extra layers in Spring it can get windy and cool up at top.

HikingFloodedGreat!IcyMuddySnowWashed out

Beautiful trail- we avoided crossing the river & took the higher trail by taking a right at the sign with the wooden arrow pointing left (right before the river cross). Once up the small hill you’ll see the markers begin again- just faded. This helped us not have to double cross a very flowing River spikes were needed towards the end of champney trail and for the majority of piper trail- until you get above tree line. Very wet & muddy conditions with the snow melting + river flowing. Be prepared to get muddy/dirty on this hike because it’s impossible to avoid right now! Incredibly rewarding panoramic views at the summit. Check out the scenic view spot at the top too- great place to eat lunch and rest before hiking to the top

Very bright, warm spring day. Due to spring melt off, we chose to not cross the Champney brook, and just walk along the ridge, next to the river (which is marked somewhat with yellow blazes). This saved us from recrossing upstream. Once we got to the switchbacks we had to put on microspikes/crampons to make it up (and down) the snow. The snow, ice, and the monorail are quickly melting, causing everything to be slick and muddy. I do not think that the snow will last much longer. Overall, excellent hike worth doing. It is a moderate trail, just be mindful of the temperature outside (and whether this will cause the snow to melt or you to melt - because we needed none of our winter layers).

HikingGreat!MuddyRocky

Couldn't have gone on a nicer spring day. Was 70s the whole way even at the top. Very minimal snow and no ice whatsoever, no spikes required at all. Top is amazing super scenic. Hike is definitely challenging towards the top, especially after not hiking all winter! Fowlers Mill Road is closed right now from the Chocorua Lake Road side so you have to go around from the other side.

HikingGreat!

We hiked this on Saturday, 4/10. The gate on Long Pond Rd was still closed, but we parked on the side of the road as did several other cars. As others have noted, the trail isn't well marked but if you follow the combination of cairns and blazes you should be alright. This is a fairly easy trail to hike, nothing too steep and there aren't a lot of roots and rocks to stumble over. There are some granite slabs close to the summit that might be slippery when wet, but it was dry when we hiked it so we had no issues. We only had to sidestep a couple of muddy spots on the trail, and there was no ice left anywhere that we saw. It's still too early for the bugs to be out so we didn't have to worry about them either. There are nice views of Moosilauke and the surrounding ridges once you get close to the summit.
