I would say this is more of a moderate level trail. It has a long lead in before you begin climbing, but the climb itself slowly ascends with a couple of switchbacks.

yes extremely easy if the trail is broken but if its not it is one of the more challenging 3000 footers to do during winter in the Hanover area. first two miles is very deceiving very gentle increase in elevation, then after the second brook crossing it gets much steeper offering views of Mt. Moosilauke. roughly half a mile before the main summit there is a spur trail to your right that leads to the North summit. mild views at the main summit, the extra half mile to the North peak offers the better views of Moosilauke and Smarts. bring lots of food and water if breaking trail after a storm here, the powder was deep and fluffy!
