Great hike ! Relatively busy with lots of dogs. Lift was running at the ski area. Great views from the overlook at 2/3 to the summit.

This is one of the best trails I've been on this a year. Lots to check out and lots of views. Highly recommend.

Love this trail. Takes about 3-3.5 hours. Nice up and down. I take it from the Andrew Brook trail to Lake Solitude, over to the peak of my Sunapee, and down the SRK trail to the lodge at the base of Mt Sunapee. You can also take the ski trails down Mt Sunapee for a smoother go. Lake Solitude is a nice stop over... and the view at the top of Mt Sunapee is stunning (views of Lake Sunapee, Mt Kearsarge and more). Love taking my dog w me.

The trail is in very good shape considering how early in the season it is. With snow covering roughly 60% of the trail, make sure you tackle this short half-day hike with decent waterproof hiking boots and consider bringing micro-spikes. I took my 5 year old black lab out today and she was able to complete the trail with no problems! The view overlooking lake solitude is stunning.

2 hours to White Cliff Overlook. 1 hr 15 down. Trail was icy in spots and lots of leaves. Must be careful on descent. Fantastic view from Overlook onto Lake Solitude. Strange energy in the woods, though.

Really great hike. Hard and steep to start off (for about a ~1.25 miles, then flattens out. Went to eagles nest, then lake solitude and then crossed over to Mount Sunapee (only an extra mile there, really flat and worth the mile). Chilly and windy with snow on the mountain, but awesome trails.

Good half day hike! It is a bit challenging sometimes with the steepness and many rocks. If it has just rained some of the water crossings can be tricky! But great view for the effort put in!

We hiked this on a beautiful fall day. Not a difficult hike in a beautiful forest setting. Very doable for little kids. Good view of Lake Solitude from ledge that we almost missed. The ledge can get crowded due to the limited viewing space. But if you can find space to sit and enjoy the view, it is well worth it. We continued to Mt Sunapee summit where there is a ski lodge with restroom facilities and good view of Lake Sunapee. Apparently people get up there via ski lifts.

Easy hike. We had lunch at the top Will do again.

Great trail! Starts out steep for about a third of the hike but then levels out. Beautiful view of the lake at the end. Definitely worth the extra mile to the summit, it's a pretty easy mile to the top and the views are worth it! Good place to stop for lunch and relax before heading back down.

Amazing. Wore the dog out! Much of the trail is rocky and those who need sticks to walk might want to take that in to consideration. It is a fabulous hike, and the lake and then the overlook is beautiful. Busy.

The views are spectacular, a perfect combination of rocky and plain terrain. A must go hike.
The view of the lake from the summit is superb!

This is the trail to do on Sunapee. A lovely trek with interesting terrain, a babbling brook, and a very rewarding destination. We also continued on to the Summit Trail and then down Newbury Trail. The summit, I imagine, would be great during foliage season. The trip down Newbury has several nice lookouts and a flume slide. Lots of interesting features! The family and I will be back to enjoy this landscape wearing the attire of different seasons.

great view

I did this trail for a spring hike and had a great time. The trail follows a flowing brook the whole way up. There are a few river crossings without bridges but nothing too difficult. About 500 feet from the summit there is a beautiful little pond. From there you can take the final steps to the summit and enjoy the view from the rocky cliffs. You can easily see mountains for miles from the top. Definitely worth it, would do again.

My family (2 adults, 12 & 14yr old boys) and I did this today. Left from the side street in Newbury and were greeted by a pretty steep start. We decided not to go to the Lake at the Jack & Jane junction, but to continue on to the Sunapee Summit. All told, I logged a little over 6.25 miles and it took us 4.75 hours with several stops. Last mile down was tough on the knees!

Beautiful! The lake up on top is the icing on the cake.

A good workout and a good climb. A bit more strenuous then Andrew Brook. Added 2 miles too it by going over to the summit. Although some ppl say nay to this I say go for it. Great views there.

It's practically a yearly tradition for my family and/or friends to hike! It's absolutely beautiful and it's only slightly tough bc of the steepness. Love the top portion the most and the view! Highly recommend!!!

Amazing hike beautiful views. Very dog friendly!

This is a rail trail I runs from Newbury harbor to Bradford. The lake referred to is Lake Sunapee. It's a nice walk MOuntan Road to South street is 2.5 miles each way. The historic part of the trail known as the cut is between Mountain Road and the harbor. The trail is an easy walk for all.

*****This is not the Andrew Brook Trail which goes up to Lake Solitude and the ledges above.

super quiet. i had a hard time finding the Newbury trail so i went down the street five minutes because i was losing the light. I'll be back for sure

Moderate hike. Good preparation for 4000 footers. Dog friendly.

A great hike today. pretty fortunate to have this gem in our back yard.

Lovely at the beginning. Definitely a workout, but lots of small streams crossed, and small waterfalls all along the way. Made it to Lake Solitude which was out of this world. I hiked on a weekday alone and literally saw not one soul all the way to Lake Solitude. I was very much looking forward to the cliffs, however, got completely lost. I kept following the white trail what seemed to be miles, and then checked my location. I ended up heading about halfway down the Monadnock-Sunappee Greenway. I was super frusterated that I needed to turn around and retrace my steps but I then saw someone had painted "Scenic View" on a rock. I took the turn to at least get something positive out of my mistake. I think this could have been Lucia's Lookout? Honestly not sure.... I then noticed that the red paint continued, and someone had marked a trail down from the ledge that said "Trail to Mountain Road" which is where I parked! Instead of retracing my entire way back, I took the chance, and followed this mysterious red trail. THANK YOU TO WHOEVER MARKED IT. Although very steep in spots, and not technically a trail, I made it back down to mountain road. (Had to cross a sketch pond). I am thankful for this adventure, however would not necessarily recommend to anyone. I plan to revistit this summer to find the ledges, and actually reach the summit!!!

Great view from the top!! Wear waterproof boots, as there are brooks and mud on the trail.
