FYI that High Street is not marked as such. There is a sign for Glencliff House - take that right (it's High Street on the map, but not at the street). If you get to the Glencliff Trailhead (toward Moosilauke), you went just a bit too far. Long Pond Road is on the left and not marked by name, but there is brown trail sign. A short distance on that road, there is a gate for Long Pond Road. If the gate is closed, it's only .5 miles to the Blueberry Mountain Trailhead on the left. Great hike - very easy footing. Some rock slides for the last half mile on top, but not too steep and amazing views. The leg to the summit is easy to miss. There is a large rock in the middle of the trail on top, turn to the right and follow the path to the summit. No views from there, but there is a very small area to sit. No shade on a sunny day for the top third of the trail, so carry sunscreen. I enjoyed this trail a lot. Easy footing all the way and gorgeous views.

Did the White Cairne Trail to the Blueberry Ridge Trail, then came down the Shell Pond Trail to the Stone House Trail - 4.1 miles total. It was a nice hike on a Sunday morning while in the area. There were better views on the way up than there were at the top, but the top offered a nice little loop overlook trail, and there were plenty of areas for groups to sit without being on top of one another. There is a small parking lot about a half mile from the trailhead, but most people parked along the road. As others have mentioned, you need to walk down Long Pond Road a bit before getting to the trailhead, but it's a nice field area with a rock/dirt road.

I am a true novice as this is my first significant hike. I went up from the Page Rd. side. the beginning (first 1/2 mile or so) is not too bad as you walk along old logging road at a steady incline, however once you hit the trail (which isn't marked as good as one would hope being new at this hiking thing) it narrows and climbs steadily up for the next mile or so. When my Fitbit read that I'd reached 2.18 miles I was almost ready to quit thinking this is far from easy! However I pushed on for another .82 miles if narrow pathway of roots, mud, water and rocky terrain to the summit! I personally would call this a moderate hike not easy. However I am 50, overweight and haven't really hiked much at all. I do walk trails daily, between 3-5 miles so I'm not completely out of shape. Anyway, I made the summit and the views were beautiful. I will do this hike again and hope to not have to stop and rest as much. A note of caution, the last 1/3mile is very slippery due to the steady stream of water running along the rocks.

Great little hike. Just an FYI long pond road is gated on rt 25 and it's a .6 mile walk uphill to the trail head (adds about 250 ft) Haven't tried the ascent from Page Rd yet but that could be alternative. June 2017

If you plan a Winter hike to this location add aprox.2,5-3 miles to your total hike! Long Pond Rd is gated at the beginning so you would have to add that in as far as miles and time, was not happy.I will go back in Spring I'm sure, not a quitter.PS I did not want to add a star but I have to to submit this.

I hiked this over summer and it was pretty enjoyable. There was white moss everywhere on the trail and saw so many newts!

I went up the Glencliff side, and it was fairly easy. Two adults and three children were able to make it up in about an hour. The view wasn't as good as I was expecting it to be, but it was a nice trail with some wild berries along it. Don't follow the directions posted on here, they don't lead you anywhere close to where you want to be.

I took this trail from the Glencliff side to the summit and back the same way, so my review is based in that portion. But I didn't have signal for GPS so I couldn't map it. :(

This is a nice beginner hill. Not too steep, not too rocky. In fact, I saw two seniors and a child not more than 8 on this trail.

It could use some re-blazing. It's not too difficult to follow most of the time but when it opens up toward the top it's easy to have no clear idea where you're going. Also, if you plan on summing, watch carefully as you could easily walk right by the path to the summit pin.

Overall, not bad my expectations of the view had been overinflated. But an enjoyable outing with a quick descent (Took me 45 minutes from summit to car).

Nice hike, starts with moderate climb up logging road and then climbs a bit more steeply through woods to a fairly flat traverse across a shoulder and then up mostly on ledges, some of them open with views. Short side trails with views south and a great close up view of Moosilauke just below the summit. 0.1 mile side trail to summit with views. Continuing on to the north 0.3 miles to views of the Benton range and also into Vermont. Nice trail fairly easy to follow across the ledges, some of the yellow blazes are faded or missing but lots of cairns to mark the way. Several muddy areas, one of them quite deep north of the summit.

looked for the trail not marked at all, directions bring you to someone's driveway.
