After reading some of the other reviews, my expectations were quite low but it was on my list- so, up we went. I was pleasantly surprised. The trail itself is lovely and more narrow, I would say, than overgrown. After hiking some over-used trails in the past few weeks, the tight quarters were a welcomed sight. There are views along the way and, if you'd like, hike past the summit until you hit the ledges on the west side to have some snacks and a look towards Vemont. Mt. Moosilauke was easily viewed on the East as you ascend and a worthy in its own right. I would strongly encourage you to park on the main road as the gate gets closed without warning and it may be a long wait to get out again! An easy, family-friendly hike.

wished there was not as much overgrowth. Views are not as good as anticipated but still great hike.

Wonderful little hike, gradual, pleasant. Some snow but totally avoidable. Nice rocky areas for views about last 1/3 of way up

Great hike! A little under maintained so it we got turned around at a few points. Gorgeous day with a little wind! Some blow downs but overall great!

Few blow downs along the way and a bit of ice near the top. Spikes would be useful, but not necessary at this point. Lots of mud and water along the length of the trail.

Nice easy hike but no great views, decent views of other mountains along the way and at the top. Minimal ice, winter boots or good hiking boots would do fine.

NICE OFF TRACK TRAIL . NO ONE ON TRAIL TODAY SUNNY 46*.LOWER PART DRY NO SNOW / ICE. WHEN YOU ENTER THE SPRUCE TREE LINE ABOUT HALFWAY THERE IS STILL ICE ON THE OPEN ROCKS. SHOULD HAVE TRACTION. THERE IS NO SIGN FOR THE TOP THIS MT. AND THE TRAIL DOES KEEP GOING ON. LOOK FOR A TABLE SIZE ROCK ON LEFT OF TRAIL. A FEW FEET PASSED IT, THERE IS SPRUCE TREE BLAZED (NOT PAINTED YELLOW) JUST NATURAL. LOOK RIGHT INTO THE WOODS FOR SOME SMALL CAIRNS AND THIS WILL TAKE YOU TO THE TOP. THE VIEW ISN'T WHAT IT WAS A FEW YEARS AGO. THIS IS ON THE 52 WITH A VIEW LIST. STILL A NICE TRAIL...

Great views today. Several blow downs in throughout trail. Barebooted about halfway up and then spikes the rest of the way. At rock slabs pay attention to small cairns & yellow markers as the trail is not as obvious. All in all a good hike.

As others have stated, the gate on Long Pond Road is closed, so you will need to walk to the trailhead. There was plenty of parking on the side of High Street. Alternatively, you could also park at the Glencliff Trailhead and walk down High Street to Long Pond Road. Long Pond Road is plowed but still snow covered. We barebooted up to the trailhead and wore spikes on the way back for the road walk due to some ice under the snow. Blueberry Mountain Trail is well packed out. Blazed yellow. We wore snowshoes the whole way to keep the trail in good condition. There are a few blowdowns along the way to go around or under. Near the top of the ledges, there were three sets of tracks going in opposite directions. We followed the set to the right and that seemed to be correct based on our map. Nice views today but not great due to low clouds.

This was a nice and easy hike that follows parallel to Mount Moosilauke. The road up to the trailhead is closed (in winter), so I parked at the gate. There is enough room for 1-2 cars. The walk to the trailhead is .7 miles, very easy. Then the trail was broken into nicely and was an easy, gradual climb. The views at the summit were limited, but there is an amazing view on the way up showing off Mount Moosilauke.

Needed only microspikes. Beautiful view of mousilauke from spur trail. .6 mile walk from 1 parking spot at gate to the trailhead. Easy 2.5 hour hike.

We went yesterday and the trail was already broken out. We wore microspikes but the couple in front of us had snowshoes. We had to walk the road to get to the trailhead which was fine since it was frozen and plowed. That is an added .7 each way. The walk in the trail is pretty gradual the whole way up with no super steep sections. The views were beautiful!

The walk to the trailhead was pretty icy. We kept to the side and hiked up without microspikes. The views of Moosilauke on the hike are lovely. There is an opening where you get a lovely view of the Ravine before you head back into the woods. In the woods there is a rock, turn right at the rock to summit. If you get to a larger cairn you have gone too far. Turn around We wore microspikes on the way down.
