I hike this at least 10 times a season since my house is right near here. 2 steep parts, but the view is worth the climb. I avoid it when wet, as the steep parts are difficult.

Fun hike for experienced hikers. If you can't go for an all day hike, this one will satisfy your cravings. The steep parts will remind you of bigger mountains. The views from White Ledge and Mt Stanton summit are worth the trip.

Nice trail, some good viewpoints towards the top. Some nice steep bits but with enough trees and alternative routes to pick your way through.

Bit hard to find the start, right by someone's driveway, but once you're on it just follow the yellow markers.

Agree with the previous ratings. Couple of tough spots - after the 1 mile mark. Watch your step coming down

Had a bit of a problem locating the start. Next to the driveway of the home located near the signs.

A few steep parts which will get the heart pumping but overall a fairly easy hour+ hike up. Great views of the valley and Attitash with nice overlooks. Bring lunch! Rewarding.

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.
