Very easy hike and you get an AMAZING view of Squam Lake! The kids loved it. We went on Black Friday choosing to #optoutside

Great short hike with awesome views of Squam and Winnipesaukee. Pretty short but the inclined on the way up still gets you a good workout!

Great little hike with view of squam lake. We missed trail fork and ended up way off so bushwhacked straight up using this apps map as guide. Luckily mountain is a small one!

Looking for West Rattlesnake Mountain, we actually hiked East Rattlesnake. With two adventurous youngsters and three willing adults, we summited to a gorgeous view of Big Squam Lake. We hiked up the red trail and hiked back on the green trail. The red trail was more challenging than the green trail, but after the strenuous hike up and the rewarding view, the hike down was a leisurely stroll back to Pinehurst Rd. Naturally we celebrated with a soft serve ice cream cone from Riverside Restaurant in Ashland!
