Great trail! Starts out steep for about a third of the hike but then levels out. Beautiful view of the lake at the end. Definitely worth the extra mile to the summit, it's a pretty easy mile to the top and the views are worth it! Good place to stop for lunch and relax before heading back down.

My family (2 adults, 12 & 14yr old boys) and I did this today. Left from the side street in Newbury and were greeted by a pretty steep start. We decided not to go to the Lake at the Jack & Jane junction, but to continue on to the Sunapee Summit. All told, I logged a little over 6.25 miles and it took us 4.75 hours with several stops. Last mile down was tough on the knees!

A good workout and a good climb. A bit more strenuous then Andrew Brook. Added 2 miles too it by going over to the summit. Although some ppl say nay to this I say go for it. Great views there.

This is a rail trail I runs from Newbury harbor to Bradford. The lake referred to is Lake Sunapee. It's a nice walk MOuntan Road to South street is 2.5 miles each way. The historic part of the trail known as the cut is between Mountain Road and the harbor. The trail is an easy walk for all.

*****This is not the Andrew Brook Trail which goes up to Lake Solitude and the ledges above.

Moderate hike. Good preparation for 4000 footers. Dog friendly.

Got crowded through the day. Lake solitude and the cliffs are a great hike. Wouldn't do the hike to Sunapee Summit again

Sadly we didn't make it all the way to the summit, but the views along the way were pretty. Would go again.

Very nice single-track climb up. Saw no one at all (nice change). Not too difficult for kids, if they're in shape.

I liked this trail a lot. It was steeper than we expected, but that added to the fun and challenge. We'll definitely do it again and try to make a large loop somehow. The views are certainly worth the climb.
