great hike to the fire tower 360 view from the tower a must.

This hike gives the best views of Winnipesaukee I've seen yet.

Pretty good day hike for families both my 9 and five year old faired well. The first mile and a half have a couple "steep" sections which I think is the only reason its rated as moderate.
There are several rock outcroppings that provide good views of the lake. The last is the best but you are still quarter mile from the summit. The summit is the only part of the trail where you will see something beside the lake and you do get a fairly decent view of mountains north.

We summited and went back to the last lake viewing point to eat lunch and rest.

It might be in your best interest to just stop at the last view point and lie to your friends about doing the whole enchilada. You'll know you've past the alternative peak when you go down into a small creepy pine forest with a narrow trail. You really cant miss it. The trail starts to suck and you'll get that nagging feeling that it isnt worth the effort.

Nice half Day hike for people in the area. The first 1.5 mile and old logging road also used by snowmobiles in the winter, then take a left at the kiosk . This nice woods trail, open Beech and Maple ridge. Some rocky and root areas. Trailhead is in parking lot at the end of Moose Mtn. road in Brookfield N. H.

Moderate rating appropriate, trail well marked and maintained. Quick steep incline. Fire tower views spectacular, signs at top level of fire tower identity mountains in the distance. Red Hill/fire tower trail up, blue trail/cabin down. 4.5 miles total. Recommend waiting for a clear day.

Beautiful in fall

Steady incline, first outlook was gorgeous but the rest of the way up was fog. Summit was small and not a real comfortable eating/resting spot before the descent down. The views along the way and overlooks were the best part of the trail.

Scenic view was absolutely gorgeous!!

So crowded with big groups when we went on a Saturday morning but such beautiful views and an excellent, well-maintained trail. Steady climb!

No views until you get to the fire tower, but once you get there it is amazing. Possibly one of the best views I have ever gotten from a hike.
At the top there is a picnic table that would make this a great picnic hike but you'll need a backpack to carry your food.
