A beautiful hidden gem! It’s super easy to get lost so just make sure you’re not like me and pay attention to the blue dots for the trail :) I went on a Friday around 11 am, very sunny and 80 degrees when I went but there was a nice breeze and shade.

Beautiful hike. The only downside was how crowded it was— not sure if it’s the time of year, Covid, or that’s just how it normally is. Trail followed the stream up so my dog had plenty to drink and cool off in. Went straight past the lake to the summit and waited for a little while to grab a spot with a great view. Visited the lake on the way down where my dog enjoyed some swimming. Mosquitos and gnats were awful coming back down but it really is a pretty trail.

Was an awesome hike with water falls, steams, and a lake on the way up. The summit was beautiful with views of other mountains and the lake. It was quite muddy in places but can be navigated around. Also was a little buggy but in all was so worth it and the lake half way up and the summit made it all worth it.

Great hiking conditions. Sunny and humid in the lower elevations. As we ascended there were fewer bugs and humidity lifted. Frankly it felt glorious being in the woods. Not many folk on the trail so social distancing was great.

Hiked May 17th. Arrived at the trailhead around 2:30PM. Muddy, but the view is worth it! I wore sneakers and managed to arrive back at my car 4 hours later without a ton of mud on my shoes. It wasn't really that bad until late in the hike, but there were usually rocks or bypasses we could take to avoid it. Outside of that, there are a couple of points where you have to cross the stream and it's unclear the best way to do that, so just wear boots. The bugs were starting to become an issue early in the hike but then went away. In my opinion, not too difficult outside of the mud and rock-hopping across streams.

Great hike. Muddy in spots. snow has melted. Lake solitude is beautiful and the look out point right before the summit is the best part. The summit is not not marked and in a wooded area. Easy to go past and accidentally continue following the white trail. Trail head parking lot is very small.

I went on 5/12 and it was muddy basically the entire hike. Wear waterproof boots for sure. Solitude trail (white) had small patches ice, but easy to get around. Sunapee Summit had some snow, but the sides were all dried up. Lake Solitude made this hike for me. I saw it on the map, but wasn’t expecting that you could walk right into it if you wanted to, that was cool. The ledges overlooking the lake is a nice area to stop and have your lunch. I would do this again after it’s had some time to dry out.

Amazing view at the top!! The trail was well marked and easy to follow the whole way up. What a nice surprise to reach a beautiful mountain top lake after emerging from the woods. After you reach the lake, be sure to keep going up to the summit on the white trail to the right of the lake. The trail was quite muddy in places and still some slushy snow, so wear good hiking boots!

Beautiful trail, definitely on the harder end of Moderate , pretty steep in a lot of places. The view above the lake was awesome! There was some strategizing around crossing over the brook in some places and trying to avoid getting stuck in the mud. I would say the ledge with the Lake view is the summit, even though the trail takes us beyond that there isn’t much more to see aside from an obstructed view of the lakes.

Enjoyable hike. Nice views of the brook as you go up and a beautiful View from the cliffs. We did walk to the peak but did not even seen a cairn in to mark it. There were a few small spots of snow at the very top. Enough to make a snowball.

Great hike. Definitely a moderate level hike. Little muddy and icy at some spots, wear some good boots.

Beautiful hike, still lots of snow at the summit. Super muddy though!

Great day hike to Lake Solitude and summit. The lookout on the ledges is well worth the effort!

I love the view on this hike (28 Apr) from White Cliff overlook. Half way to the trail was very muddy and snow was slushy with lots of water crossings. Regardless it was worth the hike!
