A nice quick and easy 3 mile hike. Not much of an incline so it’s easy to bang this one out quick if you don’t have a lot of time. Nice views at the summit!

Went after a rainy night so it was fairly muddy, but otherwise nice views of Boston and Wachusett in the distance. Very few people which made it even more intimate. Quick and easy hike if you’ve done things like Monadnock.

Easy hike on a well-marked trail. Great views at the summit! On a clear day, you can see the city of Boston on the skyline! You can also clearly see Mt. Monadnock.

There are some pretty tough parts and some easy parts. Might be better to label the trail as moderate rather than easy. Beautiful trail with a nice view at the end though! Enjoyed my hike with my friend.

HikingGreat!

A pleasant wide trail to walk with ease, Through the rustling leaves of a summer breeze, Watch for the cut off to Kidder Mount, Or you’ll climb the utility road and have to turn around. I did.

WalkingGreat!MuddyOff trailRockyWashed out

A very challenging trail with a lot of exposed tree roots. granite rocks and many granite shelving areas. Narrow walking trails, dense forest, as we slowly made our way to the top. Where the first opening provide a nice view. But the best view is at the very top. We are a mid 60's couple and this was our 1st mountain climb together. We were in no rush and stopped every so often to take a 1 minute breather. And on our trip we heard thunder coming in fast, as we were about 1/2 way. Then the thunder was over us, and then the rain for about 7 minutes. Enough to get us drenched with little overhead trees. Definitely made us appreciate the sunshine at the top of the mountain. Even if for only 20 minutes, before we made the treacherous crawl down the slippery trail. And I videod our adventures from start to finish for my You Tube channel -- NH Sasquatch Creations...I enjoy being out in the woods and never knew how many trails were available to enjoy just in NH. So I video alot and needed a location to post my/our time on trails. Thanks to All Trails for this app, and all that goes with it. We are not in the best of physical shape, but we can walk, and that's pretty much what trail hiking / walking is all about. Get out there and breathe fresh country air. and see what you can see.

Quiet trail, pretty buggy but not too bad. Parked off Old Rindge Rd and followed yellow triangle marked trail to the power lines. We split off to the left from the power lines before the big hill to follow the blue triangle marked trail to the top of Kidder. Great views, trail was dry but can see where it would get flooded in the wetter months.

Easy hike with a nice view, about hour and half round trip with a good rest break at top for a snack. Lots of turkey vultures flying around, minimal bugs, muddy in a few spots but otherwise nice trail.

I loved this hike except for the trail signs for the mountain. They are very small and due to the power lines being the main part of that portion of the trail....it got confusing. We ended up climbing the power line hill which then took a hard left to the "Boston scenic view". We got to the top but also followed what seemed to be an old logging trail which came to a set of white designer pots. Then the top was right around the corner! Awesome view!
