The smallest of New Hampshire's 4,000 footers (standing at 4,003 feet tall) sits adjacent to Waterville Valley Ski area. A lovely hike to do during any season! Follow the trail 1.2 miles to a view point then another 1 (steep) mile to the cross trail between the Tecumseh Trail and the Sosman trail. From there, the summit is 0.3 miles away. There are limited views, but it is still beautiful!

Not much to see and harder than expected. Summit view is worse than your average 4,000-footer, and the rough last mile hike may not be worth it. Good exercise though, despite my 57-year-old mother's crazy fatigue.

Nothing to write home about, a nice and easy 4,000 footer. Did this in the evening after hiking Moosilauke earlier that day.

Fairly straightforward hike. There is about a 30 min steep and rocky section towards the top of the summit, but otherwise the trail is a breeze.

This was a nice nice starter 4,000 footer (challenging without being grueling.) Many built in steps on the way up. Woods and trail were much nicer than I expected for being next to a popular ski resort. Beautiful views to one side at the top. We saw a lot of families and hikers with dogs.

First 4k, really not crazy about the hike. No real views going up except for the ski hill, and when you get to the top there is one okay view. I would also rate this mountain closer to moderate.

Gets pretty steep toward end of trail. A great hike for the family nonetheless with a great view at the top and a great viewpoint.
