Good solid hike. Reinforcing what others have said : supportive boots make your life nicer, as trails can be wet puddles and slick if it has rained the same week you're hiking it. Bit of a scramble to the summit. Nice views from the top. Would go up brook and down liberty if you're looking to loop it and save your knees. Brook trail going up is poorly marked when you hit the granite boulders!! We hiked with our friend's med size dog and she did well. Only at the rocky summit did she need a little boost here and there.

These trails are some of the least popular when it comes to hiking Chocorua, probably because you have to drive 5 miles of dirt roads to get to them, vs other trails that are right off 16. They are definitely worth checking out though; not as long or even as rigorous as trails like Piper, plus there are brooks along many parts of both trails which sound lovely (though they make for a wet/muddy hike at times)

Great hike, though next time I'd skip the Brook trail altogether unless I'm up for soggy footing and bugs! The upper portion of Brook was pretty neat, though, with large slanted rock faces that would be fun to scramble up. Liberty was easy to follow and a very solid trail all around. My 9 year old son and 40 lb Entlebucher mountain dog both made it to the summit without difficulty.

I only did the liberty trail up and back but a very pleasant hike with a good challenge at the end. Makes the view that much better.

Hiked up liberty and down claybrook. It rained a lot the day before for it was pretty wet and the rocks were slippery. We hiked with our 23 pound terrier mix who's pretty agile. He handled it well and there was only one spot we needed to lift him. Beautiful hike. Barely anyone on the trial.
