A well maintained trail. Very few exposed roots. The trail is a bit steep in sections but the lack of obstacles, dry conditions, and boots that bite, makes the trail easier to travel. The trail is fairly wide and the lower part of the trail allows walking side by side.

As advertised - it's a wide, rocky, mod steep climb to the top. The views at the top are awesome. This trail gets confused with another local rattlesnake trail. I didn't see any water from the top. Cheers!

This was a difficult climb for me as a novice hiker, and you need to take care as the climb is steep almost the entire way up. Coming back down is also needing care if the trail is wet, as slipping and falling is a possibility. My dog truly enjoyed the entire loop, tho! The loop has a larger panoramic view, and the trail is well marked.

Parts of this trail got very steep and were slippery from leaves. View at the summit was so worth it

Great hike, steep incline for about a mile but only around 3 miles total. It sounds like some people confuse Rumney Rattlesnake with Holderness Rattlesnake here. Rumney is much steeper. It's April and Mud season is upon us, I still used micro spikes in some spots.

Pretty great view of the area--and interesting rock. A good portion of the trail is quite steep and slippery. (Just dirt on a significant slope.)
