Easy, pleasant, wooded, better views than one deserves for so little effort. Perfect for days when you just have to get out and hike, but you’ve got plans later. We followed the outskirts, Border Trail. Probably the best view for the easiest climb that I can think of, except maybe for Monument Hill in Leeds, Maine.

Great hike! Three in party... four year old, adult, and senior. Took Northern Loop with Ski Area short cut both up and down. Very nice hike; all trails "as advertised" in trail map. Had to remind my son to mind his footing on the roots... only ate the dirt once... and it was his own fault. Highly recommended for all ages!

Very short hike.
Several signs were missing, labeling trails heading back down the mountain.
It was very foggy, so the views from the top were not great.

Although this area does get pretty crowded and the hike itself is short, I like that there are a few different trail options to make the trek a bit more exciting. This place is great for kids with plenty to do, as there is a playground at the base and quite a few picnic tables. And regardless of how easy the hike up the mountain is, the view at the top is still one of the best.

Easy trail and not that exciting, but I was there during Fall so the colors were great! I would give it 3 stars if I had gone any other time, but Fall.

Easy trail for families and even trail runners. Does get quite crowded. Nice views at the top. Summer bonus: strawberry picking at Bradbury Berry Farm (near the base of the mountain)

Great local trails, especially for running and mountain biking. I made it more challenging by including Tryon Mountain. Parts of this trail system are as beautiful as many wooded mountain trails in the Whites. No mountain views, but there is one vast summit view toward the coast. You can see Mt. Washington from Tryon in winter, but only if you climb the rockpile and peer through the leaveless birches.

Short beautiful hike for all ages. Pinnacle is breath taking beautiful! Sights can be seen from all angles! Gorgeous in the fall!

We did the outer boundaries on each side of rt 9 and also did the summit trail put on about 7 miles total. Overall it was an easy quiet hike would be a good one for a family just starting out or someone just wanting a good easy hike or a run.

Nice local hike. Good view at the top. Short but sweet. Did hike in the rain. Couple puddles but drainage was ok.
