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.

This hike gives the best views of Winnipesaukee I've seen yet.

Pretty good day hike for families both my 9 and five year old faired well. The first mile and a half have a couple "steep" sections which I think is the only reason its rated as moderate.
There are several rock outcroppings that provide good views of the lake. The last is the best but you are still quarter mile from the summit. The summit is the only part of the trail where you will see something beside the lake and you do get a fairly decent view of mountains north.

We summited and went back to the last lake viewing point to eat lunch and rest.

It might be in your best interest to just stop at the last view point and lie to your friends about doing the whole enchilada. You'll know you've past the alternative peak when you go down into a small creepy pine forest with a narrow trail. You really cant miss it. The trail starts to suck and you'll get that nagging feeling that it isnt worth the effort.

Steady incline, first outlook was gorgeous but the rest of the way up was fog. Summit was small and not a real comfortable eating/resting spot before the descent down. The views along the way and overlooks were the best part of the trail.

So crowded with big groups when we went on a Saturday morning but such beautiful views and an excellent, well-maintained trail. Steady climb!

This is a nicely marked trail that is a good little challenge. Nothing about it is too hard!
There are many views along the way to keep it interesting and stop and catch your breath. After reaching the summit, we actually went back down a bit to a much better view to have our lunch and enjoy the gorgeous October day. Great hike!

It was labor weekend. We started really early. On the way up met 4 or 5 people already going down... It's not steep, moderate trail. Amazing views to Lake Winnipesaukee! Summit was a little bit disappointed - only one side views - to the mountains. Narrow spot so you can't stay longer as it's started to be crowded. On the way down met a lot of people. My recommendation to start as early as possible. Good hike.
