This trail is a great hike. We did do the Trail counterclockwise and it was a lovely hike. I want to go back and hike it clockwise to see which way is “nicer”.
There were some smaller trees down throughout the trail - easily maneuvered
We wore spikes as the path was packed by hiker traffic.
Note: When you cross the covered bridge from the parking lot take a right to the trailhead.

We’ve explored a lot of New Hampshire these last few years, but I have to say, today was probably my absolute favorite hike. I love winter hiking even more than spring, summer or fall. What I took in with my senses today I will cherish forever. BTW...super short hike with multiple viewing spots. Bald mountain summit was a bit scary, but Artist Bluff a piece of cake. Tyler didn’t make it all the way up. But, with a lot of determination I did!! Yay!! (We both have tremendous fear of heights).

great workout or beginner family hike with nice view.

Awesome!

We had a great time hiking the .3 miles in snow to the falls. It's a beautiful place and a short walk. The stairs were closed to view from the upper area but we still got great pictures and took home some wonderful memories.

Boulder Loop is a great intro to the White Mtns. The solidly moderate 900' ascent and gentle descent are a good workout, rewarded by spectacular views from the ledges up top. Our knees hurt the next day - but we're getting old. ;-) Hiking shoes and trekking poles advised.

Great place to enjoy fall foliage colors. It is very crowded during peak fall foliage and the ticket line could take 1 hr, but it is worth the wait. Pathways are well maintained.

We had a wonderful hike with our pup. Not too easy. Not too hard. Good investment in time. Outstanding views from the top. Could have stayed up on the ledges for hours.

Easy hike and great view

We do this hike about ten times a year. The trail is a great morning get away. Only negative is to those of you that can't respect to dog leash rule, this weekend was a mess, enjoy the forest,,, respect the humans.

What a view! Rocky, with boulders, and roots make this trail interesting. A few steep spots but overall steady inclines. It was hard to leaVe the ledges. The view was so beautiful. We had them all to ourselves on a Saturday, after 3:00. You have to go back to the trail each time you go explore the ledges.

Awesome hike! Pretty quick, but awesome views of beautiful fall foliage! Definitely recommend!

Love this waterfall. Easy trail to a very cool waterfall.

As expected - a perfect place to enjoy the foliage! Gorgeous views and waterfalls, and the wooden decks are very well maintained! But note that this place is super popular in the fall and prepare to stand in the line for approx.30mins to buy tickets, unfortunately you can’t buy them online. But the trail is definitely worth the wait, you will love it!

This was a awesome little hike with some amazing view points. Was enjoyable even in the rain today. The most and fog made the foliage pop even more. A bit slick and rocky but very doable in the right footwear

Gorgeous fall color and waterfalls.

This is a great little hike with a fabulous view, especially in Fall when the leaves change color! The whole hike is fun, but if you just want to get to the bluff without doing the loop or adding Bald Mountain, you can access a much shorter (but also steeper) trail across from the Echo Lake parking lot. Just cross the street then bear right. The trail will be on your left, and is marked with red dashes. Enjoy! :)

awesome trail not hard at all easy hike

Short and easy hike with nice views points. Be prepare to climb up to Bald Mountain. Only sad point: we hear a lot the noise from the highway.

Fun hike

it's a nice and easy trail to hike, perfect for all ages. the fall foliage is spectacular. 16$ seems a bit expensive though, considering there are plenty of beautiful and free hikes around the area.

Really enjoyed our hike. We went counter clockwise and spent about half an hour at the summit. Personally, I'd rank the hike easy overall. There was a brief period of steep incline, but it was short and not technical. Be careful you don't miss the summit!

Great hike with super rewarding views at the top. Definitely follow the advice to go counter clockwise, glad we did. My dog loved it, too. Not too crowded, even in peak foliage season.

Great views!
