HikingGreat!

Nice fall hike. Great views from the top. Trail was well marked except we got a little turned around on Stearns Road, (just walk down the hill and the Bog Mt trail will be on your left).

Trailhead was relatively easy to find if you read the other reviews. There really isn't a parking lot, we parked on the side of the road. Starts over wooden bridge just off 4A on Kimpton brook trail, well marked with white blazes. Nice walk through the woods where you meet up with Bog Mt trail just after a little pond and across a dirt road. One mile up to the summit of Bog Mt., which is most of the elevation for this hike.

Fun walk a little muddy in the beginning and the start pf the trail is across the road from where the parking area was.

Trail head is across the main road but otherwise well marked, shady and not too steep for lovely views! Great day hike

Jeanne and I hiked Bog Mountain in Wilmont, NH. yesterday. We came in from Route 4A and followed along the trail. It's an interesting hike. The entry is not where you'd expect it to be. We, naturally, started up the hill from the parking lot and found that we were headed in the wrong direction. So...we turned around and headed across the road and found the trail. This was a really nice hike for several reasons. First, the weather was great! It was clear and cool with a light breeze. The air was clear too. This made for some great photos. Once past the bog, we started the 1 and 1/2 mile to the top. The top was really nice. It's mostly a bald peak with really nice views.

Great hike on Bog Mountain today. Parked on School House Rd (small side road) and trail was easy to find (on other side of road barrier). Not sure why there are people complaining they couldn't find the trail. Hike was all in forested area and you only come out of it a couple times just as you reach the peak. We had heavy rain for about 30 minutes today, so just stopped for lunch while the shower passed over. Made for a bit trickier and slippery on the way down as the rocks were still a bit wet. Mosquitoes were present but nobody was complaining too much. A little bug spray and they were easily managed. It was crazy how many red efts (newts) were spotted on the trail.

The most convoluted and confusing hike I've ever done. no signs that say "xx miles to Bog Mountain" you have to guess which trail to take: Webb Forest or Wolf Trail etc. I took White pine trail to Webb

Lots and lots of bugs. Trail was doable with kids (ages 4 and up) but some scrambling and lots of mud. Beautiful views from top.

This is a nice trail to pick but the beginning is very confusing. It actually starts off as the Kimpton Brook Trail off of 4A. Even when I knew that, it’s still hard to find because the trail starts on the other side of a guard rail so you will have to park you car a little bit further down the road. There is a sign at the trail entrance and then you’ll see a bridge to cross. The Kimpton Brook part had tons of puddles and what I call mini ponds. This made it more like an obstacle course then a trail. With that said, it was beautiful to see some of the bodies of water and hear the peepers. Once you cross Stearns then you are in the Bog Mountain part. This area is much steeper so few puddles but still a lot of mud. The top had spectacular views but lots of bugs. They kept showing up in my videos which was pretty funny.

The name All Trails gives this hike is a bit of misnomer. From Route 4A to Stearns Road it’s the Kimpton Brook Trail. Then you cross Stearns Road to the Bog Mountain Trail. From Schoolhouse Road, look across Route 4A for the SRKG trail markers to begin. I clocked the distance as 4.8 instead of 4.4. It’s 1.4 from Route 4A to Stearns and one mile to the summit. Also, while the two or three brook crossings were fine at the end of October, I’d be wary about hiking this trail during snowmelt.
