It was a very nice hike. Great view from the top. Very peaceful walk through the woods. It was not kept up very well. Could see the trail somewhat but could have been better.

This a great trail to hike. Not took him traffic. Views are amazing. Well marked so you know where to go.

Great hike, nice trail, snow is soft packed. Wore spikes, but not even necessary. decent views at the top and a good little work out.

Great trail!! Definitely wear your spikes for this one, and head up middle mtn, down peaked for stunning views. Would for sure call this a moderate trail, as it gets fairly steep in some spots. Loved the views from the top! Took 2.5 hours round trip, including about 15 mins up top (it was cold!) and my garmin tracked 4.8 miles :)

Great quick morning or afternoon hike.

super snow hike

Great hike. A little ice patch 3/4 way up. Micro spikes are helpful. Great view at top.

Nice easy trail. Well marked and good views on a partially open peak.

Beautiful day at Peaked Mountain today! I took Middle Mnt trail up to Peaked and then Peaked Mnt trail down. Well..that was my plan but soon agree getting on the trail to decent I started to follow some snowshoes tracks thinking that was the trail....nope!! Before I knew it I was in waist deep snow following bushwhacked tracks. I throw my snowshoes on which really made no difference in that deep of snow. But eventually it met back up to the main trail at the connector. So if your coming down keep to the right for the nicely groomed trail unless you want a challenge!
The loop was beautifully packed down and used my microspikes just for some added traction. The view was so amazing and was a clear day!! There was no technical aspects of this loop just a nice grade up!

Excellent hike featuring expansive valley views west to Cathedral Ledge and north to Mt. Washington. My quick fix when I need some nature time.

Pretty! Snow made it harder but was a great workout.

Wow! What an amazing hike! Absolutely beautiful country. Was interesting with the ice and snow, but was so worth it!

We had a nice little walk up the trail with our pup. The area had gotten a little snow, earlier in the day. We went up the Black Cap trail and down the Black Cap Connector. Views near the top were good.

Moderately easy trail with amazing views from lookouts along the way to the summit.

Hiked up peak. Started as a walk in the woods but quickly turned into a steep consistent incline through dense wood. The trail wasn't too technical, but we were winded on the way up. View from peaked mountain is nice, though a large Walmart is clearly in view. The way down was beautiful for the first half mile or so.The remaining mile was through the woods again. I recommend following the trail this way, as otherwise you'd miss the views down Peaked. This hike is best for someone who doesn't have a ton of time and is looking for some reasonably nice views.

It’s a perfect family hike: not too long or strenuous, but getting to the top still feels like an accomplishment. There is some rock scrambling required at the top that may feel moderately challenging to some, but it’s very doable. We saw people of all ages and fitness levels on the trail. We went with several kids ranging in age from 2 to 10 and they had a blast. The two year old was carried up in a pack but insisted upon climbing the rocks at the top. There are actually several areas at the top where it was safe for the two year old to roam! It took us about 40 minutes to make it up but that was with kids. Adults could do it much quicker. Trekking poles or a walking stick aren’t necessary but they do help on this particular hike. We went around noon on a holiday weekend and it was crowded; the parking lot was full and cars were lining both sides of Hurricane Mountain Road. However, the crowds dispersed along the trail and didn’t take away from the experience at the top.

IT is more than great. No Words for iT

Easy, but crowded . Great views.

It’s not easy, starts off easy but the climb up is very steep. Views are great !

A well marked trail from Thompson Rd parking area to Middle Mtn to Peaked Mtn and back. Steep in some areas but a great view from Peaked. I was hoping for more from Middle mountain but a great hike.

Great hike. Some challenge for children or older folk (like me) but worthwhile.

Love it. Relatively easy for most everyone.

Love this hike! If you have kids I wouldn't call it easy...it is a quick hike but towards the top it made me nervous with the kids because of the steep rocks. Overall though, AMAZING!

Nice easy hike, not a flat trail, the last 700 feet are pretty steep, but, hey, you're in the white mountains, nh.
