Mount Stanton Trail is a 2.6 mile lightly trafficked out and back trail located near Bartlett, New Hampshire that offers the chance to see wildlife. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking.
Today we broke trail to top of Mt Stanton . Definitely need snowshoes as snow quite deep in areas. Yellow blazes are very spread out in the beginning. Thankfully close together on the steeper parts. When you think you are at top by overlooks your not you still have to climb another 200 ft vertically. Interesting little challenge area. You'll know when you get there. We came down through the trees.
Completed 7/29/16. Nice hike. We stayed in the neighborhood near the trail head and glad we checked it out. Got my blood pumping and has some steep sections but fine if you're in decent shape and take your time. Some very nice views on the top of Mt. Stanton. Did not see any signs to designate peak but there are a few nice overlooks. Next time will continue to Mt. Pickering and beyond.
A nice hike nearby to where we stayed. A little steeper than I anticipated, but still doable with the dog, and a 10 and 11 year old.
Easy to find the trail head but no place to park except on the side of the road. Pretty easy hike with only a couple steep sections. Some nice views on the way up and great views from the top.
