Definitely doable for two moderately in shape people! Challenging at points but mostly just plain lovely. Muddy in places but not awful, even without boots (though we wish we'd had them). While it was well traveled, it wasn't crowded. Some kids, a few dogs, everyone smiling. Looking forward to doing it again - will not forget the bug spray next time!

Absolutely stunning. Should be rated as easy minus two sections. Went off trail into the waterfalls. Spectacular worth the two and a half hour drive

The waterfalls are completely rewarding in late May; lots of people on the main hike up but if you take the loop toward Mt Chocorua it gets pretty quiet.

Beautiful. Cascading falls. Early may. No snow. No bugs.
Great pools for summer travelers to play in.

Girlfriend and I hiked this in February with microspikes. it was a fun hike and took us about 2 hours round trip. The last stretch is pretty steep and we were on all 4s for a bit. Would love to do it again in the summer.

excellent views on the summit, be prepared to see a good amount of people even in mid winter. Spring/Summer/fall is probably packed. Definitely recommend crampons in winter.
