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.

Great views. Well marked trails. it is steep and Rocky. it rained on the way down which made the rocks very difficult to traverse and each of us fell at least once.

Hiked Winslow on the way up and Barlow on the way down yesterday. Still some snow and ice on the trails, which was a little tricky to traverse in some spots, especially on Winslow trail because it was steeper. Barlow was easier on the descent. Beautiful 360 degree views at the top. The road leading to the normal parking lot is still blocked off for the off season so you have to hike up the road about half a mile before reaching the trail head.

A beautiful hike with dynamic terrain. We hiked during the early winter and had to deal with some tricky ice patches on the way up. Plus a steady wind at the summit that brings the temp down about 10 degrees. Great views. A few different trail options. Barlow was our choice today!

Rocky is the best description for this loop - definitely. If you like rocks, you'll love it. If you don't like rocks - the view from the top is worth the rocks - do it anyway, it's short. Going down Winslow is dangerous for the clumsy (myself included), take poles to save yourself if you tend to fall sometimes without them (like me).
