Mount Kearsarge is a must-do hike for anyone living in the Kearsarge area. The summit has a fire tower (which is occasionally open to enter). The top is very exposed and offers 360 degree views. Note: The road leading to the normal parking lot is blocked off during the off season so you have to hike up the road about half a mile before reaching the trail head.

You have to pay to get onto the Barlow and Winslow trails. It's $4 a person. There is plenty of parking and there are some seating areas and a playground. You can tell the maintain that area pretty well. The hike is not bad and there is some kind of weather tower on top which you can walk up. That was pretty cool. The views are good for the elevation/area this mountain is located. I would say this is a good beginner trail if you are just getting into hiking.

Good hike. A little tricky when rocks are wet.

It was a nice, easy hike with a lot of rewards, but pretty busy trail as well because of that.

Amazing views! Winslow Trail may be shorter but it's definitely a challenge if you're just starting out (like me). Very rewarding! We went back down using Barlow Trail and made it down in half the time it took us to get up!

I enjoy this hike quite a bit. Nice little area with a playground to start. You can choose to go up and back the less steep side or the steep side or do the loop. The steep side is a nice little challenge and has some significant inclines. I always break a decent sweat doing it while carrying my son. The view at the top is awesome and well worth the trip up. Plan for at least two hours.
