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.

Well marked trails, lots of people. Nice views. Nice climb up and down took about hour and half total. Little slippery at the top but not bad. Dog enjoyed the rocks.

Great hike with the kids. It was cloudy when we got to the top but the kids had a great time scrambling up the rock near the top on the way up. The rock was a little slippery on the way down but we all survived. Would highly recommend. Probably best for ages 4 or 5 and up or small kids in a backpack.

Great trail for beginners or those not used to hiking but it is more than a simple walk. The views at the top were stunning!

This is a great trail! The views and hike are well worth your time. We went with 8 adults and 7 children. All enjoyed it. The children especially. While it is short and rated as easy it is a real hike. The trail is not a paved or groomed trail. There are roots, rocks, boulders, dirt, bugs, trees, gravel. Some of the parents in the group were expecting something like a groomed nature walk I think. You are virtually summiting one of the mountains. One might want to bring a small pack with water, snack, camera, light jacket or sweatshirt. Where you park is almost to the top. Just driving to the trail head was fun.

Easy hike, but you still climb enough for beginners to feel like they accomplished something. Even a Little Rock scramble and the end. Those rocks/Ledge allow for great views.

Even though we hike a lot of hard stuff here in the White’s we like to take this hike when we have a short window of time, but want to get some time in nature. It’s always a good few hours in the woods.

It’s great winter and fall too!

Today we added 3 or 4 miles by taking cutoff and looping over (1.8 each way) to the top of Cranmore Mt.

Another easy stroll through the woods with nice views from the ski lodge at the top of Mt. Cranmore. You share the space with folks that took the chairlift up but there are bathrooms, food and Tuckerman’s beer. Ha. That was a nice addition to our casual hike today.

Awesome trail for beginners with fantastic views for you reward! Loved it and will be doing it more than once.

View from the top is underwhelming. A lot of greenery. There are a few good clearings with great views though. Not too difficult and it’s a pretty brief hike.

nice view to northeast. a little confusing as signs pointing to Thompson road parking pointed I 2 different directions an we took the wrong one. take the longer route

Nice trail, very clear markings, and views from summit.

Rode probably half the trails from the suggested start and had a blast on the two easier loops. Then went up EKG and followed Side Hill to Rattlesnake and back on Swenson. Had quite the encounter with 2 different bears near the old mine site. Got really close to a big one and then a Juvenile a few mins latter.

My wife and I (both 68 y/o) hiked Middle trail first and then over to Peaked Mountain. Beautiful views at the top of both peaks. At the beginning you think it's an easy trail, but pretty soon the incline increases and it becomes more challenging. My AllTrails app says 3:16 hrs moving and 4:22 hrs total; 5.4 miles. Enjoyable hike.

Great trip for our family, but would say it's somewhere between easy and moderate. I'd still recommend it, but be prepared for more than just a stroll.

This trail was poorly mapped out, we went off trail several times, and could not find the connecting trail out to Rattle Snake Mountain trail. We still got in some good mileage doing Pudding Pond Trail to Pillar to Pond Trail, but we kept hitting dead ends after that. Next time, I will stick to the park map. Beautiful preserve area though! You can get in a lot of distance with in the park if you follow the map and markers precisely.

Beautiful view on this mountain! I will say, though, that I am glad my husband accompanied me, as we switched back and forth on carrying our 2.5 year old in the hiking carrier. It was tough, but what a sweet reward at the top!

good parking, nicely marked trails that you will share with mountian bikers. Steep, straight, and short. Trails are smooth somewhat free of large rocks and roots. good view.

Great hike. Well marked. Hiked middle mtn first then went up peaked mtn right after. Definitely a good call to go up the middle mtn side first and descend down the peaked mtn side.

great easy trail for young kids and out of shape folks like me; great views of Maine and Mount Washington. blueberry bushes galore once you clear the tree line if you go up at the right time of year.

There are 4 trails which are all in the same entrance then you can choose how long of your hike on the way. I and my dog did the shortest one 1.1 mile, Black Cap Mt. It was very good. The view from the top is gorgeous.

Your car need to good on breake and can go to steep road.

It says 2.5 Miles.....but according to the sign at the bottom from Thompson Road it was written 4.4 Miles one way....explain please??
