Nice tail though needs widening.

This is and all day hike, food & extra water. Parts are very quite except around Mt. Major. Once past this area you won't see more than 2 0r 3 other hikers. Some areas are steep and rocky others are gentle in a forest setting. This is part of the Belknap Redlining Patch Program. 66 MILES AND 15 PEEKS, IT WAS A great TIME ....

Nice hike. Beautiful view at the top. Took the blue trail (watch for lots of turns). Headed up around 10am and made it back to the lot at 1pm. We stopped for pics along the way and had lunch at the summit (15 min +/-). Trail was well marked. Nice to have a well maintained port-a-pottie at the trailhead. Didn't expect one of those.

Great short hike. I agree w/ others that the rating is misleading. I'd put it in the low moderate rating.

Pretty good hike, if you have a dog don't go down the blue trail from the top just double back on the yellow. Way to steep and rocky. Had to carry my 100lb doberman down a few spots which was very sketchy.

You will almost miss this trail! But amazing views and a god work out. Parking is adequate and shares the same if you have to go Mount Belknap. Both Piper and Whiteface has amazing views and hiking back to the summit of Piper is a little challenging, but simply worth it.

Worth a hike. Steep in some areas.
But the view is worth it.
Yellow trail clearly marked all the way up.
Very quiet didn't see anyone on trail only at the fire tower

As many others have said, giving this trail an easy rating is misleading. Steep all the way up. Often on ledge. Without the app. we never would have been able to figure out where to find the orange trail down. We wanted to avoid taking red trail that we had come up since it was steep and the ledge was sometimes wet. The orange trail lead to a gravel and then tar road down to the parking lot but it was quiet and the surrounding woods were beautiful. We were concerned about how challenging and time consuming the unknown hike down might be but it went quickly and was much easier than the hike up. I thought there were plenty of panoramic views. Loved the mixture of forest hiking and open summit.

It was a good exercise. The view is ok. I finished the loop following red marks up, orange marks from the top and white marks leading to a paved road (about 1 mi) back to parking.
