Great hike with my pup! A little buggy but then again, where isn’t this year? Overall great trails and a nice view at the summit.

Very cute we maintained trail. Good for all ages but to the summit is a little step for those who might have medical issues. It’s not too bad overall go get to the summit personally. If someone in your group can’t do the summit- there’s plenty of side trails to keep you busy and moving for a couple hours. Didn’t get to explore the whole map but for what I did I love it. Always dress appropriately and smile to others!

For a local trail and a great place to watch the sunset, it’s a gem. Trail is wide and flat. Forest isn’t very dense. Pleasant evening walk. The real joy in this is bringing a picnic dinner to the summit, sitting on the bench and watching the sun set over Mt Washington, Jefferson, Adams and Madison. You can also see Pleasant Mountain, Shawnee Peak and Bradbury. As the sun sets the mountains become clearer in the distance.

Awesome trails, fairly easy. Lots of loops and in and outs off the trail. I ended up clocking over 4 miles with the loop across the street. There is also a spot where you can see the whit mountains, if you head up to the summit.

Nice walk through the woods. Only real site was at the summit. Nice place to go jogging or for a walk with kids.

Enjoyed all the different trail routes and intersections. Nicely marked! Mostly flat trails but did enjoy the nice view at sunset at the summit.

The summit was super lackluster. The rock wall and the foundation were kinda cool. But honestly, more of a hike for young kids or dog walkers, not for serious hikers. Mostly trail walking and u only climb for maybe 5 mins of it.

great for mountain bikes, 75% of it is smooth enough to keep a good speed going, some technical riding. hardtail 26" no problem

I’ve been here in the fall and winter and both seasons were beautiful. The stone wall trail in the fall was picturesque with the colorful leaves along the trail and one of the prettiest stone walls I’ve seen. The winter was icy, but with ice-grippers on my boots, it was an easy walk. It is more of a hill than a mountain, with an easy walk to the summit. The views from the summit are not anything spectacular, although on a nice day you can see Bradbury Mountain. Check out my pics. Dog friendly too!

Quick hike to the summit. Nice trails surrounding, still a little muddy.

Overall the trail is good and the view is beautiful. The area by the summit is easy to follow and has signs, though arrows can be hard to follow. I found the SE area by Keith Loop is extremely poorly marked (and difficult to navigate in the spring), especially since there are multiple routes to and from private property and I signage to mark that. If you haven’t been here definitely wait until spring is clear so you can see the clear trails.

This is a great trail to take the family on. It’s well marked, and very popular. The trails are clear and would be safe for kids. Will definitely do it again in the summer.

This trail was fantastic! Came after a snowstorm and it was still easy enough to traverse. There were lots of other dogs on the trail too; everyone was super friendly! The trails are very well marked so it was easy to follow even with all the snow. Highly recommend :-)

This was great for the kids because there were so many trail choices and loops taking us thru different terrain. The view at the top was surprisingly great!

Nice and easy trail that was beautiful with all of the fall leaves! From the top of the summit trail you could see mt.washington. The only issue I had was it was hard to follow the trail because it wasn’t always well marked.

Great Trail, tree canopies just bring your bug spray.
