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.
