Bang for your buck hike. Unreal view and manageable for your average person. There are a couple very rocky and very inclined spots, but again it’s the least amount of effort you can put in, for the greatest view obtainable. Very understandable why this is one of the most hiked mountains in the world. Super fun!

This was a situation where a pretty good hike met some of my worst planning. Not the hikes fault though. The views were cool and the hike was fun so, 4 stars. If you’d like to plan a fun hike, I’d recommend checking the weather ahead of time. I’m fairly opposed to hiking in hail and we got turned around just before the top due to lightning. I’d also suggest bringing a bit of water. Also, I brought a first time hiker on this fairly challenging hike. Avoid my mistakes. In seriousness though, fairly challenging hike. Has some scrambling and a fair amount of elevation gain. Probably not a rookies hike, but worth doing.

Great weather. Trails in great condition. Lots of people on the trails, wouldn’t call it over crowded though.

Didn’t get to hike up this one today because I failed to check and see that you need a reservation to hike it since it’s been so packed. However, I hiked up little monadnock and gap mountain and it was pretty empty. Views aren’t great, but it was a nice and easy hike.

Easy hike up white dot, last half is good for barefoot up and down. Go early, about 4am and get to the top to enjoy the quiet sunrise before the masses show up. 5/27. Enough mosquitoes to suck the Wuhan Weeze right outta your blood! Nice and dry.
