Moderate trail despite the snow on the ground. Our spikes definitely made our life easier. We didn’t have the courage to climb the ladder and boulders, so we took the alternate trail to the summit, which was much easier. Amazing view on the top and lots of space to rest. Highly recommend this trail!

I was disappointed because due to logging, this trail is a mess and not marked well at all. It's so easy to get off course and follow the wrong path.

Nice hike, river view and historic markers. We took our 4 year old grandson and had fun teaching him how to identify the different types of trees and leaves, moss mushrooms. Picnic tables and small grills available and a playground. Only complaint would be about the hikers that let their dogs off leash.

went up stone cairn trail very steep but the views from the top were spectacular. came down stone hut trail, not well marked but easy to follow great hike

Pleasant, easy hike to get to and from the falls. The area of the falls was more than we expected. Our 50 lb pup had no troubles.

Great place ❤️

Easy trail, quick payoff if you only have a little time to spare. We're not experienced hikers, saw ages 2 to 72 walking with no problem. Falls are worth the short walk. Pit toilets at entrance, $5/vehicle fee.

Really nice easy hike with beautiful views in the Fall. Had the place to myself on a drizzly day!

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

Very family friendly, my 1 1/2 to had a great time! Stunning views of natural pools

Easy and great waterfalls. Kid and dog friendly.

Lots of improvements to this preserve since I last visited it. Hawkes Trail has been modified to include a change in the midsection. A section has been close (marked) and a new route created. Improvements include new catwalks and information stations. A few new trails too. Watch out for the poison ivy which is prevalent throughout.

Easy and gorgeous

Agree with positive reviews. A nice hike with some scrambling, especially if you climb up the falls. One point. Your most likely be sharing with multiple visitors rather than finding solitude. The easy access to a super cool water feature attracts waders and swimmers that like to hang out in warmer weather.

Fun and easy hike with beautiful falls. Very similar to the Basin in Franconia Notch.

Very nice. Just exactly what our family of four needs for an afternoon of exercise.

Went on rainy ☔ day and still loved it. Serene.

Couldn't find the trailhead at all...Decided to try finding Parsonfield Trails (also couldn't find, and didnt allow dogs). Waisted trip to Parsonfield; ended up at Mousam Way Trails!

Gorgeous views of the water. Serene and welcoming. Magical.

Good hike and relatively easy! Watch out for rocks and tree roots. Many different paths to go on so pay attention to where you are going. Some are marked some aren’t.

This was a good hike, lots of effort and one of the longer hikes I’ve done with my kids. The view was okay for the amount of work going up and down. I think this was a good hike, but I’m not sure I would do it again compared to all the other mountains and moderate hikes around NH. However, I do think if you are a regular hiker, then this is a must do just because it is a popular hike and it’s nice to be able to compare it with other hikes.

This is a nice, 7.4-mile hike, but I have to say that I have never spent more time looking at my iPhone to stay on the trial. Blazes that start out reliably and then end abruptly, and trial signs that are great intersection markers, but poor guides mean that it is an adventure just to stay on the loop. Particularly at the bottom of both trails, it is easy to blindly follow roads or the remains of roads and miss the hidden trailheads. Check your progress on the AllTrails app frequently at the bottom of both trails. At elevation, it is not so difficult to stay on track. (I still find that putting my iPhone in Airplane Mode works perfectly for maintaining GPS function without draining my battery and GPS works even when there is no cell reception.)
We took the Stone House Trail up and the White Cairn Trail down. The White Cairn Trail definitely is the steeper of the two nearing the top, but it also is the more scenic. If you are not doing the entire loop, and just want to go up and down, take the White Cairn Trail. It was a busy trail, but the good news is that you can find a number of lookouts at the top to have a private lunch with a view. By the way, the top is a little hard to find too. Watch for the "Lookout Loop" sign and follow the trail/cairns to various rock-faced clearing overlooking the valley below. You can have great views and spots to have lunch below the summit along the White Cairn Trail; no view lost by the lower elevation. I marked several of those good lookouts as waypoints.
Never did find that "Rattlesnake Pool," but did see a sign for it.

Enjoyed all the interconnecting trails

Our new favorite trail to hike with our two boys. They are 9 and 6 and loved climbing all over the rocks.

Nice wide trail that's easily accessible. No tough terrain. Well kept and complete with bathrooms, trash cans, picnic table and railings. Quick walk with great waterfall scenery and beautiful wildlife. No real challenge but a great quick family friendly hike close to town.

Nice loop trail. Lots of roots near the trailhead makes for looking down a lot. Trail goes down to Royal River which loses about 120ft of elevation and then comes back up afterwards. The uphill portion will leave you a little winded but besides that it's an easy trail. Takes less than an hour.
