The trail starts out with an incline and there are a number of stairs to reach the top of the trail, the view is breathtaking, it's a panoramic view of Squam Lake, where On Golden Pond was filmed. Well worth the hike. The trail ends with a slight turn to the left, ending in a large rock ledge.

Great views of Squam Lake. Easy and short hike. If there is a downside (and this is really reaching) would be the noise pollution from the people on the lake.

Great short easy hike as a beginner. It took me 25 min to go up and 15 min to come down. On my travels I passed many others of different skill levels and ages including families. The view at the end was beyond worth it.

A relatively easy hike with a huge payoff at the end! Can get pretty muddy. The parking at the trailhead is limited.

I LOVE this trail! Its very short, maybe 20-30 minutes and in the middle of nowhere (very long drive from the seacoast) but WOW the view is spectacular! I love hiking and this is by far the shortest, easiest hike I've ever completed but no other mountain beats this view.
