Nice hike. Varied inclines. After about 45-60 minutes in there is a nice stream on the south side of the trail. The entrance to the alpine zone is like entering a Frank Lloyd Wright house, you are in a very covered, narrow trail then you climb a small rock crop to wide open views. Very beautiful and your first view of Glen Boulder. Well worth the time. Just over 2 hours without stopping to the boulder in nice weather.

Steep climbs on rocks. Very fun but hard for most visitors. The end is very worth it.

First half of the trail is fairly steep, rocky and wet / muddy this time of year. The second half is in the alpine zone, exposed rocky scramble. Amazing views, worth the effort. The black flies we're relentless. This would probably be a great Fall hike.

I started out early around 8:30 am am the day was just beautiful...the hike was great ...it is steep on some parts and at the 3/4 point it is a challenge...I am not sure I would bring young ones as it is a rocky climb but it is hiking after all...definite climb to do again...maybe the next trail for Mount Washington...

Hard trail for a young one, but has lovely scenery at the top. Struggled a bit with the steep points, especially the end where you have to do some near vertical rock climing. The view is great on a day where there are no clouds and all sun. I recommend to hike this trail when the weather outcome is very minimal clouds, so you can get the best viewing experience at the top. TL;DR This trail was hard, but the scenery was great at the end. If you are to hike this trail, I also recommend a light pack with some water, and snacks/lunch.
