A mix of some snow, mostly rocks. Pretty good and continuous incline. Beautiful view.

Just hiked it. Right now all the leaves in the trail make it quite slippery on the way down.

if you want a workout Bald Knob trail is definitely one of those. Straight up the entire way, got up in about 40 minutes and took us about 20 to get down. Good sunset hike

Not a lot to like on this one. straight up back-breaker. muddy. first view-point about 80% of the way up. many better ones on that side of the lake. we prefer longer hikes with interludes of level areas. Mt Roberts is 5.0 miles out-and-back and far more enjoyable, the same vertical climb, and nearly the same view. So in summary - not a fan

Steep, but relatively short compared to taking the carriage rd. We did it for a sunset hike and it was amazing. The views were amazing. Made it up in about an hour and down in about the same just because it was dark and very rocky.

Trail was very hard to follow on the way up and slightly hard to follow on the way down. Beautiful view though!

Decent roadside parking, fun trail passing through maple grove before ascending quickly next to little streams and waterfalls. Lovely view. Connects to many other Ossipee trails

HikingBugsRockyScramble

A very short STEEP climb with lots of loose rocks and need for hand holds. Very buggy today, spray would have been a good idea. We did this today with a 5 and 2 yo who needed help most of the way. Views were gorgeous, nice pay off for 1200’ of elevation in 1 mile!

Really took my time and forgot to stop the recording- you could summit this in an hour if you’re in decent shape. My dog and I had fun- lots of folks and dogs on Sunday afternoon

Took the Cutoff trail on the way up, and this down. Very steep and rocky, with only one lookout just before the summit. Other than the top which provides fantastic views west and southwest across Lake Winnipesaukee, I found the rest of the trail more a workout than picturesque hike.
