This moderate hike is totally worth it for the stunning view (especially in the fall) that you get of The Valley and Mt Moosliauke to the west and some other mountains like Liberty to the east. The hike starts off a little steep but levels off and there's plenty of room to sit and enjoy the view at the top. The tail is well shaded by yellow Birch, Beech, and sugar maple trees. If you're like, like we were, you can catch a glimpse of a red-eyed vireo.

I'd recommend coming down using the Indian head trail, stopping at the Indian head resort to see the Indian head rock. Then, take the dirt road parallel to the highway, passing a snowmobile dirt road, which should take you back to the parking lot.

Short hike from flume gorge parking lot. Nice views of mounts flume, liberty, wolf and mousilauke. Unfortunately, The traffic noise is with you until you reach the Summitt.

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.
