Great little trail with a scenic pond at the end. The beginning is a bit washed out but still walkable. There are two signs on the trail it the second is hard to see right before getting to the pond. A bit buggy in August but what trail isn’t in NH? Worth the walk.

Thought I’d get a little trail run in. Thanks but no thanks. Maybe in winter...

Easy hike out to a beautiful clear lake. Swimmable but look out for leeches. Hung out for hours and didn’t see anyone, very lightly trafficked. Highly recommend.

45 minutes up. Trail had hard packed snow and ice on it but was manageable without traction, although you may want to bring it just to be safe. Overall a nice simple trail.

Loved this hike. Very tall grass and tick heaven but the pond itself is amazing and quiet!!

Quite poorly maintained. Beginning is heavily washed out, tree limbs blocking the path and foliage obscuring the later parts of the trail. Wear long pants as several parts are overgrown with grass. Strictly speaking this isn't a trail issue, but when I hiked here los mospitos were out in force in a way I haven't experienced in the White Mountains before, and it seriously affected my enjoyment.

A very nice easy hike with a beautiful pond at the end. The beginning section of the trail was quite heavily washed out and this adds another 0.3 miles to the in and out track from where you can actually park your car.

One of my favourite trails, beautiful pond at he top. The parking is not something to be worried about.

Doesn't appear to have car parking. The gate was closed, so maybe it was out of season, it was June 3 - should have been in season. Narrow road tough to turn around on. We skipped this trail due to lack of parking
