Great hike that is not too hard. We met several families with young children. It would be interesting to know the history of the large house that must have stood many years ago just before the loop at the end. The large rock foundation of the house and two large chimneys are all that remains.

Actually took the longer route back to get view from Rattlesnake Knob. Babbling brooks along most of the route. Well marked and maintained.

Very enjoyable hike with delightful setting and views at the top. Some of the log bridges were unsteady as was the only handrail we came across. I recorded most of it but haven't found the map to add here.

FNP Trail was a joy. It was a moderate hike that was beautiful with several small waterfalls with a babbling brook a good part of the trail. It is worth the trip and I would hike it again.
