I prefer blue up and yellow down. It takes about an hour to go up and an hour down, if you don't take many breaks. Blue is steep but it's nice to get up there quickly. and this is a perfect mountain for sunrise hikes because it's not a long hike up

this was actually a good day out biking. it would have been 5 stars except for the bridge crossing. first time through a group of kids were blocking the path. they had absolutely zero respect for anyone. we stopped so they could step aside and let us through. as we passed, o e of the kids grabbed the safety flag of the trailer I was pulling with my dog in it. the kid snapped the flag right in half. on the way back through, I gave the kids plenty of notice when I asked if they would step aside this time and let us pass. this time they wound up forcing my trailer, with my dog in it, over the edge of the trail into the railroad tracks. this turned into a very mouthy 13 or so year old being a complete ass. really took a lot out of what could have been a perfect day.

Hiked it again today. Went up Blue and down Orange. Steep going up but definitely glad it was shorter than yellow with the steepness. Orange was challenging going down but not as bad as going down Blue.

It was amazing when you get to the top.

Went counter-clockwise which was more steep but in the end worth it bc the descent was much easier on my knees. Great views, even overcast!

First time going, theres a couple different parking spots with trail heads, but we chose to park at the lot at the bottom of Mt. Agamenticus look out [I believe you can drive to the top and park up there as well]. BEWARE of the bathrooms. My friend used the one at the bottom of the hill - No lights and poop all over the seat. Some trails are beginner friendly where others I'd rate moderate. We hiked to all 3 mountains; the first being the one with an actual view [if it's not foggy]. The second has no view but still has a sign labeling it Second Hill [LOTS of ants all over the rocks] and the Third One isn't even marked so we walked right past it [after taking Third Hill trail which actually ended up being a longer way - Easily could of took Ledge trail and been there sooner lol]. By the time we realized we had passed it we already had been hiking over 2.5 hours in the heat and was getting eaten alive by bugs [Yes, we put bug spray on before hand, but must've sweated it off] so we decided not to turn around. We thought we'd take the short way back, but ended up at Old Mountain Road. Used our "Maps" app on our phone to navigate the remaining 1+ mile walk back [on the road] to the car. Took us 3 hours to hike 4.35 miles.

great hike!
though lots of tripping hazards (rocks and many tree roots)
After .8 miles of the hike the trail splits into 2 sections
On the left is a harder .3 mile path that involves a more steep incline with some rock scrambling
On the right is the easier .5 mile path that stays consistent with the path type of the trail. some rocks and roots in the path but easier to hike up.
Both routes are worth taking to see the beautiful view at the top!

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

great, nicely maintained trail. The whole area is nice epecially for it's location near the shore. it's worth a visit and if you don't won't to climb to the top you can drive there still with access to all the other trails.

Nice hike, very pretty pool. With all the rain last night there was a lot of mud in spots.

That was a great little family hike. Lots of cold water pools to lay around in and 4 leaves up or so there was a hole that was about 2 ½ feet wide by 3 ½ feet long and about 10 feet deep. Jumped in with my arms by my side. What a rush. The hike is easy. Parking was a problem so get there early.

Amazing view at Summitt

Hiked orange trail up with three kids(13,11&10 yrs). This was their first real hike. it was steep enough to get a little winded and make your legs shakey but completely doable It took us a good 1hour 30 minutes to summit. Beautiful views of the lake. On the way down we took yellow trail. great hike

Accurately rated as easy, though there are a few steep points where old pups or people with weak knees might struggle. Beautiful lookout points. The whole loop-de-loop that AllTrails lays out here took us just under two hours, including short stops to take in the views.

Liked this very much. Good for the dogs and enjoyable for everyone else

Great hike...kids loved swimming in Rattlesnake Pool.

Perfect hike for families with younger children. One of the highest visual-payoff-to-effort ratios you can find.

Amazing trail for family of 6. This was our first time in the White Mountains and a perfect hike for beginners. The trail is well marked with a beautiful forest canopy to start followed by a rocky ascent deserving of some fancy foot work. The kids couldn’t wait to get to the top. What a view! Well worth it. Spent 30 minutes snacking and taking in the amazing vistas. Coming down saw many hikers going up. We lucked out not having hikers on top. Will definitely visit next time.

A nice hike with some very scenic views at the top, but it is not ‘easy’ (at least not for a 65+ year-old who is reasonably fit). Elevation increases the entire way; lots of roots and small rocks to watch out for; and large rocks to climb on the last 1/4 mile. For me it was a medium-level hike (especially since it was hot and humid today), and a very enjoyable one.

So romantic to do with your boo ;)

Super fun little hike. I’ve done it a few times and each time and it seems to be more fun than I remember. Just this past weekend I hiked it after a heavy rain. The run-off only added to the enjoyment. (The lack of people due to the rain certainly didn’t hurt either.) Take the dog on this one. They’ll love you for it. One very active, high strung puppy slept all the way home.

living near the base of this mountain I find it one of my favorite trails to hike.

we went up through Brook trail(yellow) and came down on boulder loop(orange). Our way up was moderate, there were lot of water streams and small falls that actually made climb tricky as the trail got slippery at some points.

Boulder loop was one of toughest descents we have ever been to. Lots of rocks and steep climbs. I suggest carrying an extra pack of socks just in case your socks get drenched in water!

Short hike to falls- first part of the trail could even be accessed by wheelchair or with a stroller. Climb up higher on the path to get up to the top of the group of falls. Small waterfalls and natural rock slides - good for all ages but can be very slippery so watch the little ones.
Gets very busy on nice days, go early or go when it’s raining to avoid the crowds.

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.
