This is actually 5.71 miles out and back. Trail is rough, hiking boots are strongly suggested to help navigate terrain. Mount Bald has wonderful views.

Used Mt Kinsman Trail to connect to Kinsman Ridge Trail to get to North and South Kinsman. The Mt Kinsman trail is a great trail. After passing the junction for Bald peak the trail gets steeper with more rocks and roots to go over. One it connects with Kinsman Ridge Trail there is a nice little outlooks where you can see Cannon Franconia Ridge.

Perfect day hike. I only saw 2 people toward the beginning of the trail and then had the whole place to myself. Beautiful views at the top!

Used this trail up to Bald peak and onto the KRT, great long hike. Fun butt sliding on the ridge too.

Great hike. Had to use micro spikes the entire time as the trail was mostly ice covered. Several water crosses over solid ice where you could hear the water running under the ice. A. windy at top but no wind below top. Well marked trail.

Agree with other reviews - easy first half, but a moderate second half. Beautiful and worth it!

it was a pretty good trail without a lot of rocks like some trails I have hiked. Nice view at the top.

It was a great hike. Much more difficult the second half as it got steeper. Definitely a challenge for me.
