Did this hike about 3 weeks ago. Not the most well marked and fairly muddy at times. Would definitely recommend waterproof hiking shoes/boots during mud season or after wet weather.

First time up - mostly easy and just a bit of moderate. All dry now. Came down a few of the ski trails.

Really great trail with awesome views at the top! Little confusing at the beginning with where to go, but eventually got it. Really narrow at some points but overall great trail

Goshen / Privince trail loop to mnt sunapee. Trail run. Goshen trail is not scenic (understatement). It is mostly dirt / gravel logging road through very disturbed forest. But overall, great loop for trail run!

Did this trail on Tuesday. I absolutely loved it. Gorgeous views all around. We started by sitting in a ski slope and looked down on Lake Solitude, but it was super breezy so we moved to the other side. The trail is very zig zag and gets narrow at times, but this has been my absolute favorite trail so far. Great to get to the top and have no one walking around what’s usually a busy ski area. Also brought 2 little dogs and they did great!

Just a few people with dogs when we went. Once you get past the ravine, lots of mud, slush, and ice, so watch your step. Some trees down across the trail, but nothing you can't walk around or under. We had a cloudy day, but still some nice views from the lodge at the top

I am 52 years old and have been coming to the Sunapee Lake Region for 52 years. Thanks to All Trails this is the first time I've ever found the trailhead to get to the summit of Mount Sunapee. I have been to the top of Mount Sunapee many many times, frequently hiking the Andrew Brook Trail. But also climbing straight up the ski slopes and sometimes using a chair lift if that's available and running down the ski slopes. I must say the trail is a lot more fun!!! Beautiful trail with young healthy Evergreen and beautiful foliage at this time of year. It was very very very wet. thanks to those who posted how to find the trailhead. It is behind the Adventure Center. Follow the road, bear right and look for a hole in the woods. ps..I still took the ski trail descent - the views are spectacular.

Great trail, strenuous but not unreasonable, with amazing views from the top. Entrance to the trail is behind the adventure club to the right.

Gorgeous hike. being from California originally I was amazed by the fall foliage and I was the only hiker on the trail. . it was dead easy ..summited in just under an hour. in a quirk of fate there was a wedding reception that was going to use the ski lift up to the top and so I was there so he let me go down the ski lift in 42° weather it was absolutely magnificent I felt like the double rainbow guy tears of joy looking at leaves change!

Trail was well maintained. Hardly any bugs the day that we went. Dog friendly. View wasn’t super impressive.

Great hiking day! Maintained trail w/many roots-not an issue as ground was dry. Picnic lunch at summit w/beautiful views of mts and lake. Lots of families on trail and saw one runner. 3+ hours round trip hiking time for us as slow hikers.
