Recommend going clockwise on loop as pitch from pond to top of bubble very steep and rocky.

There are 3 ways to get up/down the mountain. We were hiking with a dog and one route is not dog friendly, so check with the ranger stations. One path is no joke, hiking over boulders. The views were worth it!

We didn't attempt the southerly descent from South Bubble on the advice of several other hikers (including their six and eight year old children) at the top, who cautioned that it was extremely challenging for younger children (which calls into question the moderate rating), but otherwise a very enjoyable trail.

we did just bubblerock and the north peak and both were well worth the short effort. we did not complete the remainder of the north trail.

Kid friendly for sure. Go early so that you can avoid all the foot traffic!
