I've been hiking this for years, mostly with my best friend, Rufus, a Miniature Schnauzer. We would hit the crown point trail and start with the fire tower trail and make output way to the bald peak. Tons of views including the ocean and Mt. Washington. Relatively easy hike with great views throughout but very heavily trafficked. Like many have said, tons of blueberries. I've seen many large deer on the trail and bald eagles from the summit. I have spoken to a few people about the trailhead from Sheepborough road but have as of yet not tried it. I have also seen jeeps and 4x4 trucks rock scrambling on the bald top.

Took the toughest route after not hiking in easily 5 years and it kicked my ass but it was so worth it!

My first time today. meh. nothing super cool or difficult. you can comfortably bring nothing with you. it's basically a 2 mile loop with a ton of unmarked trails mixed in. Also came up on a group of kids in their early and mid twrnties climbing the radio tower and fire watch tower, on the roof of the shack near them, and smoking, and drinking. other than the bad there is a cool pond and the dog was happy, and we were too because we got some blue berries.

Nice hike to get a little exercise and enjoy some views! Lots of blueberries to snack on, dogs loved the pond at the top, can't wait to go back!

Very easy hike. There's a short steep part at the end, otherwise there is hardly much incline. A simple hike to do with kids; my FitBit measured it at about 1.4 miles. The sounds coming from the small building associated with the antenna at the top detracted from the beauty and peacefulness a bit.
We brought our dog along and none of the other hikers seemed to mind.

Well maintained, easy to follow trail. The view from the fire tower was incredible! Fairly easy hike, so worth it!

It was hard at first but so worth it.

Great after work hike. You can hammer it out relatively quickly, easy for kids and dogs. Great for warming up for bigger mountains.

This trail is fairly short, and not all that hard to hike. Has some steep parts, and can be wet/muddy. But once you get to the top there is a fire tower you can climb up and get a 360° view of mountains. Hiked it today and last fall.. Amazing to see in the fall!
