This was a beautiful hike. The trail was well maintained, as its part of the AT. Our GPS logged the out and back as about 8 miles, which I didn't expect. We took our two kids- 6 & 9 with us and they loved it. Go to the North side when the trail splits and you'll find a bald peak made up of quartz, it was gorgeous! The views were incredible and made the 8 miles well worth it.

awesome hike, great view

One of the wonderful hikes in the lesser known western white mountains. A strenuous hike, but not too difficult for the payoff of great views.

Trail was washed out in many places so slowed us down a bit but just as well because this was a hard hike! The views at the top were spectacular and definitely worth the hike. The last 45 minutes of the hike back down we had to listen to very loud music from the summer camp across from the trailhead :(

A bit muddy this time of year but the view is amazing.

Took us about 2 and a half hours to reach the top. The first half of the hike is a steady incline and then after that it's a bit more difficult. Throughout you cross about 15 streams...one of which is much larger than the rest so be prepared to hop across some rocks! Very quiet, we only saw 3 other people. We went to the north peak which had great views of Moosilauke and we could see the windmills in Plymouth region. Probably could have seen even further another time but it was a cloudy day.

Love the trail and the view from on top is amazing

I would say this is more of a moderate level trail. It has a long lead in before you begin climbing, but the climb itself slowly ascends with a couple of switchbacks.
