Getting There

A nice shorter hike with views of the White Mountains! This trail is wide and has beautiful views at the top.

If you don't know the area well, the trail might be hard to find. If you're coming from Newfield Road, the trailhead is just past a newer home and clearing on Gray Road--and if you go too far, you'll see multiple ATV trails and the road goes up a small hill. There's no parking lot,

The trail head wasn’t marked and there is a No trespassing sign. I took the wrong Trail but was able to get to the peak. The leaves made it very difficult and slippery to walk on the rocks

No trail markings, no trail head. But worth the work. The peak is awesome especially this time of year. Great adventure!

HikingScramble

Trail is rough when covered in leaves definitely very tricky for young hikers. Trail is also used for 4wheelers and dirt bikes so path is rough in a few areas and being covered in leaves makes it slick. Trail is not marked so follow all trails map. Beautiful view at the top definitely worth the hike. Enjoy :)

Great view but no trail head marker, no markers on the trail, and dirt bikers riding around you.

HikingGreat!

Wide trail with some washout because of ATV usage. Some spots where you scramble a little, but overall an easy hike. Rock ledges. Great view at the top. Today the fall colors were just beginning to catch our attention.

A nice shorter hike with views of the White Mountains! Normally I wouldn't be excited about a trail that is mostly an ATV path, but because of COVID, I'm happy to have a wide trail to provide space if needed. If you don't know the area well, the trail might be hard to find. If you're coming from Newfield Road, the trailhead is just past a newer home and clearing on Gray Road--and if you go too far, you'll see multiple ATV trails and the road goes up a small hill. There's no parking lot, so I just pulled off to the side of the road as much as I could. I've uploaded a photo of what the trailhead looks like to give future hikers a search image! It's clear that there used to be a sign, but I don't know what it said. Ultimately, this trail starts out close to some homes in a pretty rural area, so I tried to be as respectful of that as possible. Actual moving time = 45 minutes for me, and I spent probably 20 minutes at the top eating lunch.

First to Review

Part Bushwhack at beginning due to no trespass sign. Rest of the way is a snowmobile trail for the main peak vs a unmarked deer trail for the western peak. Quiet road with no technical parking area.
