Nice quick hike with a high reward. Great views of cannon mountain.

Excellent trail if you are in a time crunch or just want a short hike that ends with great views.

Great hike with a couple of beautiful views and cool boulder formations along the way.

This is not a moderate trail- the skyline trail as listed above is hard- it’s a long grueling walk from Quincy to the Blue Hill and back. Easily could consume a whole day- I’d advise starting before 9 if you plan to do the entire loop

A ton of stairs, jagged walkways, and numerous spurts of scrambling make doing this entire hike a pretty big challenge.

A bunch of great views- the best of which in my opinion all come from Buck Hill in the middle.

Great trail. The Skyline is a great quick trail for a weekend morning. We had a lovely day and it’s very clean despite the traffic. We did half the skyline trail for a 2 hour hike.

Awesome hike, did it with 9 people and a dog!

Love this trail!! I did about 4 or 5 sunrise hikes here in July and I have nothing but good things to say about the trail and the view at the top!
There is a couple very very rocky sections but the majority is a nice dirt trail

Nice river walk, payoff is nice with a closed in pond and waterfall

Nice little hike stupidly done in the rain.

What a nice place to hike. I was surprised by the abundance of different mushrooms in that forest. They grow in many colors and different sizes.
Luckily we used bug repellent so the mosquitoes didn't bother us too much.

Great hike, does get steep about halfway up but you’re under tree cover the entire way up to the peak so it stays pretty cool even on a hot day. Brought my dog and she had no problems navigating the trail. The first half of the trail follows along the Pemigewasset River and the gentle sound of rushing water is always nearby. Wide cliff at the summit provides fantastic views of the town of Lincoln and the White Mountains.

You can easily spend the entire day on this trail. Many difficult slopes and interconnecting trails. I cast my vote to categorize this trail as 'Hard'.

Wonderful hike! Views at the top are fabulous and worth the climb. We did it counter clockwise like others suggested and were glad we did! Much easier on the knees to do the steeper part going up. We brought our kids- age 6,8, and 11 and they did fine. Easy to moderate climb.

Fun trail that doesn’t take too long. Gets steep on the way up and takes about an hour. Getting down takes about 35-45 mins. Great views on top of the Whites. Awesome hike overall.

great hike, waterfalls where really nice. We had recently got rain so they had a nice amount of water. Varied terrain, ups, downs, rocks and roots.

If your not a regular hiker, this is a moderate hike, we hiked clockwise, pretty steep and uphill with little respite. Views at top were well worth the effort. Would highly recommend this if you have couple of hours to spare

This is a scenic and well-marked trail but unfortunately I had to turn back as I was swarmed by bugs despite multiple applications of 30% deet bug spray. Will return in a cooler, less buggy season.

Great hike. All woods and no views with lots of stepping stones to the summit. Fabulous views at the top so certainly worth the trip. Took me an hour up and 50 mins down. Will return in the Fall.

Nice, quick hike with lots of views. The only drawback is that it's super popular, so I recommend going early (or on a weekday) to beat the crowds.

Great hike, took us about 2 hours to complete. Beautiful views at the top. Lots of rock “stairs”, our two dogs loved it. We camped at the covered bridge campground which is a 30 second walk away from this trail!

Nice hike for the full day, very rocky indeed! We liked the view of Boston skyline at the top of the hills. We saw a really big snake, a deer, and on our way back heard some other animal roar and just ran along the trail to get away from that spot ASAP:) it was getting darker though, so I guess that’s why animals were coming closer with almost no people on the trail. So definitely a great trail, but better go in the morning-early afternoon to get back before dark.

Beautiful hike! I suggest going up Winslow and then down Barlow.

Nice trail for kids and beginning to moderate hikers. Stay left which us steeper but easier footing - come back clockwise in less steep by more rocky trail.
Nice views and dog friendly with swimming hole near parking.

Please, pick up and carry out your pets poop and poop bags. Enjoy~

This is no doubt a difficult trail: we kept joking that it goes uphill both ways , because it goes up and down a lot weather you’re going in or out. There’s a LOT and difficult areas with big rocks , this is definitely not for beginners or anyone with injuries : you could shorten it to any length you want because it is a loop you can just turn around when you’re halfway to what you want to do’ we did this in preparation for the Spartan Beast and it was a great workout with challenges !

Great morning hike. We started hiking at 7am and reached the top just after 8. Great views and a really nice maintained trail. Highly recommend and well worth the time.

The initial push up the hill can be a tad bit tricky, but nothing anyone can't handle. Big rocks to climb over and plenty of roots in some sections. Overall, I really nice hike and it wasn't too busy when we went.

Did the trail July 16th. We were surprised that the bugs were nonexistent. Did the trail counter clockwise which we thought was the easiest. The payoff is great for the effort only about 1000 ft of elevation. Would do this hike again.
