Great trail, but the leaves made the rocks pretty slippery!

Use it for training for summit ridge hiking. Too many dogs and cyclists, though.

Nice views even in a winter day. A couple spots are a bit rocky but that's the fun.
Probably it's easier to start going south / left from the trailhead and do the loop.

This is a great hike. Lots of others hiking and enjoying the scenery from the top. A few strenuous sections, but overall a pretty consistent challenge.

Did this trail in peak fall foliage season and loved it, though no matter how you dice it there will be lots of others with you and I prefer a more solitary hike. Still beautiful views on top !

after moving to this side of the connecticut river from Manchester, I was looking for a local hike comparable to case mountain. what a gem this place is. 10 minute drive from where I live and more than enough of a challenge to make it an experience worth having every time. love this mountain.

Awesome hike for history buffs.

Always a good hike. One of my favorites in the area.

beautiful views year round

Many reviews had stated that the trails were poorly marked however I am assuming they were recently repainted because all of the trails we hiked were clearly marked.

Fun trail great to do with family and friends. Can’t beat the view.

Markings could be better and trails maps located in the parking lot would be helpful. Trail contained some nice views.

Excellent hiking inside the city! It's rare case when you don't need your hiking boots to have a great hike! ;) There are a lot of great historical places which will be faced on this trail. Nice trail!

Fun trail! The start from Bellevue pond could use better signage...

This is my favorite mountain. I grew up nearby and any chance I get when I visit New Hampshire I trek the White Dot trail. I have a cousin who has hiked Monadnock thousands of consecutive days setting a record. The views are incredible in the summer, fall, and winter. White Dot is difficult. 800 to 3100 feet in one mile. Be somewhat fit, bring water, dress properly, and use caution on the granite. It can be hazardous to your well being. On clear days the Boston skyline can be seen, Canada and Vermont are visible and many lakes, ponds and church stepals are also visible. My favorite butt kicker trail.

This trail was really fun! Lots of good views, some good scrambling at times. Good amount of mud, plenty of rocks to walk across though.

Middlesex fells is super convenient to the city and is very beautiful.

Views are spectacular !! Trail is steep and there is some climbing you have to get through but very well worth it !!

Great trail! Would love to do it again in warmer weather. We went on a snowy day in November. There is a fun rock scramble during blue. Very wet on the lower levels of the trail. Great day!

Markings could be better.

This is a very unique hike which is totally different from any conventional hiking trails you’ll find in the sierras. Definitely worth doing at least once. Be careful; it’s very easy to slip and fall. Views are OK, not much to look at honestly.

Quick getaway for NYC resident. We completed the trail in approximately 4.5 hours (with a 30 minute detour off the white trail and a 20 minute meal break at the top of the blue trail) with two fit adults and a 45lb beagle dog. Trail markings at times missing, which, thankful for the free Alltrails app with prior free download of the trails.

Some dos and dont's:
Go counter-clockwise, as recommended by many on this page (white - blue - orange - red - yellow). Yellow trail is along the water and brings you back to the parking lot, but minimal trail markings to find the merger from the red trail. To find the orange from the blue - take the left fork when descending from the highest point of blue. Especially if bringing a dog go counter-clockwise because of the rock scramble on the blue trail. 80 degree angle at points.

Wear waterproof boots is a must - no tennis shoes.

We arrived at 10am and there were only 3 parking spots remaining (in both the visitor center and the dirt lot across the road), however, cars were parked adjacent to the center on the main road by the time we left.

Climbed for first time. Not a traditional walking trail. Trail begins at white dot trail over rocks and tree roots and ascends quickly. Lots of granite on trail. In fact the “trail” turns to all grainte rock scrambling most of the way, sometimes crab walking on all fours becomes necessary. The summit is beautiful. Getting down equally rocky. Follow the trail markings, take your time, enjoy to views.

Pretty nice trail, I would rate it easy except for that steep part on the blue dot which is moderate difficulty, would recommend doing it counter clock wise, otherwise it would be more scetchy going down on blue dot. A bit too crowded.

Great trail overall. We did the red, blue, and then white but I would recommend the opposite (white, blue and then red). Since the blue was a STEEP downhill, it made going down for our dogs very difficult. Other than that part, we all had a great time! And also, wear waterproof shoes/boots! Getting your them soaked is almost inevitable.

trail was extremely muddy, make sure to bring proper footwear. easy to get off trail (and off property!).

The walk to the falls itself is nothing much to speak of, but the falls are amazing! Excellent spot for some photo-ops. Trails are well maintained and nice and wide. Good for a casual stroll, particularly with pups.

Really great hike!! First mile is relatively simple, second mile is more climbing than hiking. We underestimated how cold/windy/icy the hike would be towards the summit. Wear good hiking shoes and many layers!
