Definitely do this one in the morning before the crowds. Well worth the hike.

A perfect trail for the typically rocky ascents here in the White Mountains of NH! The ascent is rocky, but not overly so, and is steady upwards, and clearly visible. I hiked this in Keen sandals with no problem. A great asset for hiking would be hiking poles, especially if you are short, like I am. This is a great hike for families, even with little ones! The view is really great, and if you go just a little off to the left as you come onto the clearing and rock ledges, and look back, you will see the cusp of the Mt Washington cone and the antennas up there!

Great hike with kids! Took a little over an hour to get to the top. Much faster coming down. The view from the top is fantastic!
Lots of small rocks to walk/climb over. Constant incline. I would consider this the easy side of moderate. Definitely gets the heart racing!
