This hike is pretty steep and I would say it's harder than all the other "moderate" hikes I've done from AllTrails. When we hiked this yesterday there were many fallen trees and it seemed like the path hadn't been maintained in a while. If it weren't for the markings we wouldn't have known where the path was at all in a few places.

Great hike. Broke trail after the last Nor'easter. Winds were strong for the first half then got above them. Easy breeze and temps in the 20s. Broke a snowshoe binding on the last steep stretch before the top. Super view over Squam. Came back down bare-booted in knee deep snow. would do it again in a heartbeat! Just with solid shoes!!

I'm sorry to see the last review before mine was 1 star. I found this brief out-and-back hike to be just wonderful. Original plan was to summit Doublehead and then trek across to Percival, but it was gusty and snow-sleeting so we only did the out and back. Trail is well marked and woods are beautiful. A couple somewhat steepish spots, but no scrambling. Would be a GREAT beginner hike. It took us 3 hours in wet, leaf-covered conditions with fresh 1/2 inch of snow.

Lovely views of all of Squam Lake. You can hike from the bottom (as shown on this map), or drive up a gravel road for .9 miles and hike from the base of the Doublehead Trail only.
