I came here with my older sister and my dog, expecting to hike the full 10 miles but we ended up taking the wrong trail down from the summit of Mount Major but it was definitely worth it. We took the boulder trail up to the summit and it had a breathtaking view of lake Winnepesaukee (probably not spelled right). Our 10 year old dog enjoyed the hike every step of the way and she was leading us the whole time. I would really recommend this hike to anyone because the view from Mount Major is well worth the hike to the top.
