Fairly easy hike. Aside from last half mile (where you’re almost climbing straight up granite slabs) it’s a good steady incline. Hiked it yesterday and had to navigate through some icy spots, so just watch for black ice as you’re approaching the last mile!

Great choice for a 1/2 day out. Very good bang for the effort views. Views of Church Pond across the Kanc and all the way to Mount Washington if you go around to the north side of summit...just choose your footing carefully so as to not harm the plant growth. The trail started as a nice stroll through the autumn colored forest before crossing the river. It gently steepened but not unreasonably so until the final approach to the summit. Good views of Hedgehog Mountain & the Tripyramids from an open ledge a short distance below the summit.

Great hike despite the fog. Last quarter of mile rather difficult due to big slabs of granite. Take the right hand split to summit for stairs and easier ascent/decent.

I guess I don’t understand the meaning of easy. This climb has steep scrambles. The view is gorgeous!

Good hike we enjoyed it. Not to easy not to hard? Just right and nice views.

Great hike. Would call it moderate. Took us 2 hours up, 1.5 down, but we were moving slowly. Nice views. Swam in the river at the end!

Not my favorite trail. Some areas could have been marked better. Some steep and rocky sections towards the summit.

Nice hike; moderate/easy not easy. Good views, not 360 degrees but a good 180. Easy for dogs.
