This is NOT kid friendly- very steep and extremely rocky on last part. My friends with kids had to stop middle hike and go back.... was wet and slippery - fell twice
However beautiful and stunning!!!

Quick hike with a fantastic view! A new fav!

Myself and Rosa started kinda late morning. Nice solid path with many rest areas. We ran into picnic sites and the best part was at the bottom near the parking lot after we finished...there is a small river where we soaked our tired feet...super soothing.

Was unsure if we were on the right side of the road (Rattlesnake Mountain parking lot is across the street with the port-a-potty). Decided to go Mt Percival trail and loop around to Mt Morgan and back down (approx. 5 miles). Mt Percival trail gets very rocky towards the top; wouldn't recommend bringing kids, my dog had a hard time in spots. We ended up taking the Caves route, which lead us to the most beautiful view and right towards the trail leading to Mt Morgan.

Hiked 10/23 up Morgan, down Percival. 1st 2.4 miles wooded path rises gently with few short, steep spots. Steeper near top. Ladders/cave/scramble to Morgan peak a bit sketchy, but fun. Great Squam Lake views along Morgan Summit ridge and Percival summit. Descended Cliff trail to long, forested walk back to trailhead (parked @ empty Percival lot; least crowded of the 3 available)

A fairly easy hike. Very little climbing involved. I went up Morgan and down Percival trail. Shorter trip up that way, and the ladders are on the way up. Short walk along the road to return to the car. Great views of Squam lake, very few people on trail before 10 am. Enjoy!

Great view. lots of people. parking could be an issue if there at peak times
