Hiked with my 3 kids ages 12,11, and 4. It was a great hike with a few cool landmarks to see and a tower at the top!

Took a group of 4-6 graders today. Great hike for beginners wanting to experience a bit of scrambling. Great for any level wanting to get a quick workout and see some gorgeous views. The monadnock region has a great resource of moderate hikes; this is one of them.

1 day after rain, muddy in beginning parts, dries up midway. Steep climb towards the top. Good views all around.

Beautiful views and scenery. Can be a little difficult with a kid carrier (Osprey poco pack). Definitely doable but needed to get a little creative for a few spots to get through.

Beautiful and peaceful. If you enjoy wooded trails as well as lovely views, then you’ll really like the trail.

Great hike but the reports of wasps at the summit are true so be careful.

Trail fairly well marked. Mid point has some steep parts so pace yourself or you'll be panting as it can get strenuous in parts. . Weekends are crowded but no problem, you can park on the side of road if you have too. Views are excellent. Saw plenty of hawks migrating south at summit

Short but s lot of ups. There is some sharp scree that could be a problem for kids or anyone in open toed shoes. This mountain is typically the start or end of the seven sisters hike.

I've hiked this a bunch of times and it's always great. The views up top are beautiful and you can be up and down pretty quickly. I would rate it moderate instead of easy.

Note: I hiked this on July 28 and was stung by an aggressive wasp at the summit. There have been other reports of people getting stung on the summit too. Be cautious, there must be a nest somewhere and they're stinging without provocation.

Some fun hiking, but not many good views, and lots of bugs. Hiked in mid-July.

This hike was suggested to me by a friend that grew up near Mt. Watatic. I hike almost weekly year round in the White Mountains and really had no interest in such a small hill due to being spoiled by views from the "real" mountains up North. So, after a boring day at home and feeling restless I decided to do this hike and watch the sunset as it is only 45 minutes from home. I have to say the views took me by surprise! 270 degree open views that give the feeling you are on a much higher peak. The hike up has some steep sections but overall is very doable for the average person. It would be a great introductory hike for a beginner as well as children. Unfortunately, the western view was somewhat obscured by trees so the sunset idea did not work out as good as I hoped, although I bet a sunrise hike would be outstanding, so I will return. The trail is well marked with yellow triangles, however, care will be needed to stay on the actual trail as many people have strayed and wandered off trail in the midsection creating random paths that weave about. The good news for those not comfortable with wilderness navigation is all these extra paths seem to blend back into the main trail so getting lost is not a real concern. To sum it up...If you are new to hiking or wish to take a newbie or children for day out this is a great choice. Pack a picnic and hike at a comfortable pace and soon you will be treated to big mountain views ! ! !

Hiked this trail yesterday - limited parking. Moderate hike - great views. Clivus Multrum toilets, fire Tower & small refreshment/shop at top with bubbler for water on side of shop.

Nice short hike with rock scramble. Okay views of Amherst, but great start to the Seven Sisters! My dog, Lily, enjoyed jumping over the rocks.

Really good workout! Great views. Watch for the yellow and/or red markers.

When the trail splits for bald mountain between uphill to the left or straight/Right, Right is much much shorter and you can still hit the other view points that way

We took the left which was much longer, not well maintained or marked very well in some places.

Easy short trail, Dog and 6 year old did fine

Great walk to the fire tower. Vigorous enough to get a good sweat but not too hard to be exhausted at the top...

Did this hike for the first time, had great weather but lots of mudholes just as a heads up for current conditions.

Beautiful area. We used a GPS to get to the location and it brought us in from the all access road. DON'T recommend this (Blue marker trail is what we took in, over grown and not alot of markers). Thankfully we are avid hikers and managed to find our way to the actual trail. If you use a GPS to the parking lot it tells you that you have reached destination, go another half mile down the road to the boat landing area to enjoy this hike. Yellow/Red markers are much better and great views/hike.

GREAT HIKE. Most of it is an easy incline. Lots of
Muddy spots right now, but no snow!
Towards the last part of the trail is a long set of stairs then a fun scramble at the top. The scramble was tricky while carrying an almost 30 lb. toddler on my back, but would have been a lot easier without carrying.
You could see that there were TONS of blueberry bushes.
Great views from the summit, especially of Mount Monadnock!
I look forward to doing this one again without a toddler on my back!

short but rather steep, with a rewarding view from the ledges.

This is my fallback hike when short on time but need to get some quiet time in. Have had many restful times in the wind break overlooking the pond.

Quick fairly vertical mildly strenuous hike! Very worth it because of the beautiful view at the top. Rocks were somewhat slippery when we went.

We arrived at the Notch on a Saturday early afternoon and the place was packed with cars. We hiked to the top of Bare mountain in decent time and continued to hike to the next peak called Hitchcock mountain in about 40 minutes.It had good outcrops for viewing.Then we hiked the red trail southward off the back side of Hitchcock mountain to the yellow trail heading east which lead to the main road back to the parking lot . All and all I figure it was just under 5 miles .I recommend this hike because it goes in a loop and it’s not so short as climbing to the top of Bare mountain then back down

on Mount Watatic

Hey views for a 45 minute hike!

Gives you a decent workout, but not too tough, the view from the summit(s) is very nice.
