Hiked orange trail up with three kids(13,11&10 yrs). This was their first real hike. it was steep enough to get a little winded and make your legs shakey but completely doable It took us a good 1hour 30 minutes to summit. Beautiful views of the lake. On the way down we took yellow trail. great hike

I very nice hike and the view was worth every minute of it. I suggest you go early in the day as there tends to be A LOT of people mid day.

View at the top is gorgeous! Trail was a little rough, steep, rocky.

Great hike. Challenging trail that is poorly marked and there is no official trailhead. The views are worth it!

Fun walk. Short scramble at the top on they way down was a nice surprise

nice easy hike. great view. too bad some dipshit with a drone was there that day. kinda put a damper on the 'out with nature' vibe. lots of people. probably 2-3 hrs round trip at medium pace.

Super fun little hike. I’ve done it a few times and each time and it seems to be more fun than I remember. Just this past weekend I hiked it after a heavy rain. The run-off only added to the enjoyment. (The lack of people due to the rain certainly didn’t hurt either.) Take the dog on this one. They’ll love you for it. One very active, high strung puppy slept all the way home.

we went up through Brook trail(yellow) and came down on boulder loop(orange). Our way up was moderate, there were lot of water streams and small falls that actually made climb tricky as the trail got slippery at some points.

Boulder loop was one of toughest descents we have ever been to. Lots of rocks and steep climbs. I suggest carrying an extra pack of socks just in case your socks get drenched in water!

My daughters first mountain hike. It was a great hike :)

Great day hike. Amazing views of Alton Bay and Lake Winnipesaukee

Fairly short and relatively easy, though a little steep in parts. The view is amazing and very worth it.

Quick up and down! Great for a hike that is moderately challenging but doesn't take long

It really was not young family friendly. My family had hiked this before and the conditions over the past several years deteriorated remarkably. Actually could not even relax until we hit the summit due to the trail hazards. Mount Major Erosion!

I had fun! Went up Main Trail (Blue) and down Brook Trail (Yellow). The final ascent on Blue is steep, exposed rock face. I had my sticky trail running shoes, so that made the climb easier. The Yellow is easier on the knees coming down, but definitely longer. Went the morning before thunderstorms were scheduled to roll in, so trails were not heavily trafficked. In wet weather, the Yellow trail down was a better choice - rocks get slippery when wet! I'm an average dayhiker and pushed my ascent pace to beat the weather; took me about 1 h 45 min for the whole loop including a five minute break at the top. Folks who don't hike a lot or who are hiking with little ones will probably need to budget more time.

Great trail! Amazing views! Still dealing with ignorant people with their dogs off the leash. Wish something will get done about this. I wish people would start thinking of other people, it’s a shame! I will be doing this trail again for sure! My wife got bit two years ago because of this, so that’s why it bothers me so much.

Awesome rocks. Wide trail. Went to the summit with my dog. He had a blast. It gets steep toward the top and it rained a bit during my hike. Rocks got slick. Great views. I took the blue trail.

Nice short hike
Awesome views from top

Blue dash trail is steeper and more challenging with smooth rock faces

I would not rate this easy in any way. Lots of boulders to climb over. Trail is very well marked. This one was too hard for me. Really beautiful views at the top.

Very well marked trail, quick and easy hike. I hiked it with a pulled Achilles and it didn’t irritate my calf any further. We started b 8am with 70+ degree weather which was nice. LOTS of blueberries at the top!

Super easy trail and very well marked for the green trail, Great views from the top, you can see the chairlift at the top of Gunstock from the firetower. Very good trail for dogs!

Went up the yellow and down the blue. Glad I went up yellow. Hard for me since I am out of shape but it was doable. Coming down the blue trail was very steep and made me glad I went the longer but less steep route. Beautiful view at the top.

Took the yellow trail up and orange (boulder) trail back down. Even with added distance, it was still less than 2.5 hours with a short break at the summit. Great views as expected, overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee. Not too many views or cool rock formations aside from the summit zone though. Steady climb past the first mile, but thoroughly in the middle of "moderate" range. Limit time on the blue trail to avoid the crowds.

We did this hike a few weeks ago and it was great, not too hard for someone like me with a desk job. ;) Saw lots of kids and dogs do this trail no problem as well. The views from the top were awesome! Everyone like a good view of the water, right? Definitely will be coming back to do this one in the fall for the leave change!

This trail was beautiful, and consistently challenging. It was a reminder to me that All Trail’s scale for easy / moderate / hard is inconsistent. I’ve taken ‘hard’ ones I found easier than this. That being said, loved every minute of it.

Moderate and rewarding hike. Gets a little steep on the rocks near the top, but the view is well worth it!

Great hike a few hours from Boston. On the easy side of moderate. I’m not I’m great shape, I think if you’re a seasoned hiker this would be cinch with a spectacular payoff.

Steep hike but fun beautiful views.
