Great views for a moderate hike. Passed just a few people on our way up (late morning), few more on our way down. Steady climb up, but nothing too difficult. Took 1/2 the time to get down on the steady decline. I'm not in fantastic shape but have hiked a lot in the past and didn't find this that difficult. Surely gets the heart rate going though.

Got up early, before the teenagers, found this trail by accident and did this impromptu hike in about 3hrs round trip, including our short stay at the top. Great views from the top! Definitely will do again.

Great hike for beginners. Not too steep and good views. Parking was free. Took us an hour up and 45 mins down.

Drove up to NH from MA and jumped out of the car to do this as our first hike! Challenging! Took about 2 hours with 6 kids ranging from 6-15! Defiantly a moderate hike but absolutely beautiful at the top! Well worth it.

A "just right" trail, not too long, not too short, not killer steep. The reward is a great view from the top. We went on a cool summer weekend day. A lot of other people had the same idea but we started early and headed down while everyone else headed up. Lots of kids and even babies in backpacks.
The summit can be windy but you can get out of the breeze by continuing around the corner to a bare rock area which is an ideal spot for a lunch break.

This is a moderate hike but enough to sweat when the weather is high! Second time I did it! We did it in 1.5 hours to go and then 1 hour back. My two kids were very happy on the top seeing all the valley. :-)
