One of the most popular short hikes in the White Mountains, this relatively easy hike is blazed in red and offers excellent views of the White Mountains and the Presidential Range. This Preserve is managed by The Nature Conservancy in New Hampshire, and is an excellent place for walking, hunting, and observing wildlife. Camping, fires or wheeled vehicles are not permitted on the preserve, and all dogs must be on a leash.

A bit of a slog on a rainy day, but worth it for the view from the top.

Hiked the trail with our kids (ages 11 & 13) and our chocolate lab. It's pretty much a slow and steady uphill hike with great views at the summit. Came across families with small children and retirees, nice hike for all ages.
