good challenging trail

great for a day hike

Would probably rate this Trail as difficult due to rough terrain and very steep inclines. Took 6.5hrs and enjoyed every minute!

Early in the trail, a large dip in the path was full of water. There were old beams and fallen trees pushed in, but they were not secure -- be aware and cautious with your footing. Just prior to the bridge towards Granite Lake, the ground was completely saturated with water - the planks set up for crossing were submerged and loose. Fortunately a previous hiker had set up some rope to hold onto between two trees -- unfortunately, my stride was still not long enough to make it through and I ended up stepping ankle deep in water! Make sure you bring an extra pair of socks!

Parts of the trail were quite narrow through low shrubs. I recommend wearing/having long pants for this section.

Passed a few other hikers but little activity. Beautiful and quiet.

Bummer got all the way here and the trail head is off a private road. No where to park before this except a park then over a mile to hike to the start of the trail through a neighborhood. Not worth it. Decided to hike elsewhere.

very nice trail. this is my favorite trail close to dartmouth. the road leading to it is a bit rough if you have a low car.
