Getting There

Mt. Roberts is the westernmost peak in the Castle in the Clouds complex in the Ossipee Mountains. While the summit features strong views to the north, perhaps the most scenic portion is the ledge area along the Mt. Roberts Trail. The Lake Winnipesaukee views from this section are second to none.

Enter through Ossipee Park Road to avoid Castle in the Cloud parking fee.

Take I93 North to exit 23, make right at bottom of ramp onto NH 104 east toward Meredith, make left onto US3, make right onto NH25, make a right onto NH 109 towards Melvin Village, make a left onto NH 171, make a left onto Ossipee Park Road, park at the upper trailhead parking lot.

March 3 - a moderate hike with beautiful views. The trail was mostly hard pack with five inches of fresh snow and some deeper drifts. Micro spikes were a must and snow shoes! Trail needs some love. Overall this is a great hike!

Great trail with stunning views of Winnipesaukee on the way up. Gorgeous views of Mount Washington, Mount Chocorua and the Sandwich Range from the summit. Used micro spikes the whole way. Parking lot was filling up by 9:30.

HikingGreat!

Easy to find location and hiker lot. Not so easy to find trail head . It said head towards Shannon Pond on paved road and take a left at the fork past the shed with a red roof . First, Shannon Pond is covered in snow so it doesn’t look like a pond . I originally walked right by it following footsteps through what I thought was the field all the directions talked about . I quickly realized I was going in the wrong direction after checking my all trails Pro downloaded map. Corrected and found the trailhead after going back to paved road and found the small shed with a very faded red roof . Go at round the field as there is an electric fence surrounding it to trail head . A good .4 which is what I believe the directions say to the actual trailhead . Hiked it on Feb 11 and trail was well packed, micro spikes definitely necessary or it would be slippery. No ice anywhere though . Orange blazed trail is very easy to follow given the snow packed obvious trail . Amazing viewpoints at 2 places on the ascent . Amazing. Do not go by the first one with the sign that is off the trail. Can’t beat the view of winni and surrounding peaks . The day wasn’t completely clear for me but I could see pretty far regardless. I was there early and I noticed the cloud cover lifting when I was on my way down around 10:30. Sometimes the worst part of an early hike . It was pretty cold on this day 6 degrees when I started and I imagine the summit was below that with the wind and my hands were unbearably cold after only a few moments taking pictures at the sign. Descent was quick , wishing I had my packable butt sled for some of the steeper parts though it was easy and fun to run down with the spikes preventing any wipeouts . Nice area with lots of trails I hope to return to and explore more soon.

Well packed snow, but still recommend spikes and poles. Fantastic south and West views from multiple viewpoints on the way up; Chocorua, Blueberry, Whiteface, and Passaconaway clearly visible from summit.

had a good hike today, only met one other party on the trail. i did it without spikes or poles, they could be handy to make you feel more secure but i didn't encounter any issues. from the parking area the total distance for me today was 6.89 miles

Hiked in late December 2020. Manageable without micro spikes. Some nice views along the route and mostly well marked trail.

What a spectacular day for a hike! Bright sunshine, warming from about 25 degrees at 9:30 to about 36 when my daughter and I got back down at 1:30. Definitely recommend micro-spikes. A few steep-ish areas, but nothing we couldn't handle. (This is not Mark, BTW, but his wife. It's his account :-)
