It was a nice forest walk with fresh air but some parts toward the top was quite steep and had to work hard. To the top you can go up a ladder and thru the cave then you come out to a beautiful view over Squam lake. Following the yellow marks, claiming over rocks will lead you to another marvelous view of the mountain top. Very satisfying after the hard work!

Start from Mt Morgan trail head if you find climbing up the ladders easier. Nice view of the lakes and the caves in Mt Percival are so much fun.

Its an alright hike. At the top was a decent view of the lakes. Nothing crazy. No good for backpacking i got caught up in the tight cave because of my bag. Dont recommend for round people because of ladder + tight crawl spaces (although these could probably be avoided via alternate path) Trails also arent obvious at times. Good luck

Adventurous trail with ladder up cliff face, cave to crawl through. Not recommended for backpacking, just for hiking as you have to remove your pack and there is a lot of bouldering and scrambling required. Very steep going up and down.

My first long and more difficult side of moderate trail (as a beginner). A great day trip with many fun challenges such as squeezing through tight caves and climbing over many rocks including some rock climbing. I took mount morgan up and went over the cliffs and took mount perival down. I would not recommend for children or dogs. Many nooks at the top to relax and sit awhile
