HikingGreat!

Very short hike but very steep on the way up! We completed this is about 40 mins. The way up takes the longest! Nicely shaded until you get to the overlook. The view of Squam Lake is unbelievable for such a short hike. Great place to bring some lunch! The way down is nice and quick

We set out mid morning to hike this with our one year old and preschooler. Unfortunately, the trails was too slick with little pebbles and pine needles underfoot. Many places we were slipping and sliding. We did not make it to the summit but I look forward to trying it again in more mild weather. And when our daughter had a few more trails under her belt.

Short hike! The trail was steep on our way up. The view of Swam lake from the top is absolutely blissful.

Absolutely beautiful!! And the view at the top... spectacular!! Took the ridge trail to the Cole Trail on the way back down. Those trails are also beautiful.

Great Winter hike. The first section gains elevation quickly and is a little slippery. There are lots of level areas and the view is worth the work

great hike with the kids and dog. could not see the lake through the trees. I'm sure once the leaves drop in the fall you'll get a better View.

Hiking

Great quick 1hour challenging hike. Steep for a good workout. And a really pretty view of Squam Lake from a rocky cliff. Much of the trail is covered with pine needles which is easy on the legs on the climb but a bit slippery on tour way down. Just note that at the he end of the red trail turn right to continue on the ridge trail for less than a .25 mile for the view. Also being bug spray.

View is amazing! Red trail is steep for beginners in my opinion, but there are other trails that lead to same overlook that some fellow hikers said were easier. With that said I did see lots of kiddos doing it with no problem.

As someone who’s new to hiking, I’d say this was a great shorter hike with a beautiful view.

Great little hike, steep! It does connect to other trails, recommend taking ridge trail on your way back over to west rattlesnake summit, the view is even more incredible there!!

The east rattle snake trail is a little more wooded and thus more buggy than the west rattle snake mountain side. The view is good but definitely can not compare to the west rattle snake side. But it's a short hike for a relatively good reward.

Fantastic view for such a quick hike! Some parts are quite steep, but the view is worth it. If you're parking at the trailhead, make sure you get there early. There's only room for 4 or 5 cars

Same view as the West Rattlesnake Mountain hike, with less people. The trail is well cut with some parts of steep climbing, and the view is incredible. At only a little longer than a mile, it’s pretty much the ideal quick hike.
