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.

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.

Easy hike up steps most of the way and a few straight spots. Only gets steep for a very short time right at the top. Great for families just keep kids away from the ledges once on top :) bathrooms at bottom of trail and plenty of parking. Really nice beautiful hike the views are worth the trip for sure. Hope you enjoy!!
