Absolutely great hike. I also want to make note of the "fake summit". I past a group on the trails who didn't realize you wanted to go an extra 1/3 of a mile or so to the "real" summit.

well marked, but had some fallen trees blocking the trail. regardless, the real summit had a spectacular view including mount moosilauke, sandwich mountain, middle and south tripyramids, mount whiteface, mount passaconway, mount paugus, and mount chocorua.

Great morning hike. Met all kinds of folks headed up as I was going down. All smart and wearing micro spikes. Finally a beautiful windless day to hike.

Awesome hike! Worth the view, there is a false summit so keep going until you see the carn. (Pile of rocks)

I think this is also listed under Mount Israel trail, for anyone who wants to check out more reviews. This was a nice quintessential NH hike. The terrain does not vary much, it's pretty much just a forest. The smell of pine trees is wonderful and ubiquitous. The elevation gain is no joke - feels like you're on a stairclimber for a couple of hours. As others have mentioned, go past the first peak, you've reached the top when you see the cairn. Trail was easy to follow. No fee to park.

this trail is definately a steady workout but 100% worth it for the killer views! theres a lookout half way up and then another just before the summit.

Steady uphill all the way, good workout. First views at about 1 1/2 miles... nice views at false peak then almost 180 view at top. We had a little rain shower on the way and gorgeous rainbow! I wouldn't do this in April, bet trail would be a stream at places. Lots of blue Derry plants- should come back in August to eat them!!!! Did w my 13 year old son. Fun mother-son hike.
