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.

Nice trail, no one on it. Starts off as hard wood slopes and at top Spruce and a lot of rocky ledges. Trail was icy today, you need traction. Moose tracks at very top.

Pretty easy hike. Not a very big summit but has exceptional views

A really nice hike through the woods, with some cool features along the way (a literal ladder drilled into rock, and some bounder caves to climb through!). There were some scrambles, and I would say it is deserving of the moderate rating. It took us about ~3 hours to do roundtrip. However, we did get lost for a bit, as some turns are not clearly marked off.

This hike can still be done easily without spikes. Almost no ice and got lucky: morning sun was warm and wonderful. A bit of crunchy snow on top. Roundtrip (up Morgan, down Percival) took us under 3 hours.

I'm sorry to see the last review before mine was 1 star. I found this brief out-and-back hike to be just wonderful. Original plan was to summit Doublehead and then trek across to Percival, but it was gusty and snow-sleeting so we only did the out and back. Trail is well marked and woods are beautiful. A couple somewhat steepish spots, but no scrambling. Would be a GREAT beginner hike. It took us 3 hours in wet, leaf-covered conditions with fresh 1/2 inch of snow.

Great hike. Lots of variety including caves, ladders, some steep sections, scrambling, etc. perfect day with my son, cousins, uncle and nephews.

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!

Loved this trail! About 2 hours each way. No part too steep to handle, loved the ladder route to the top. Incredible, incredible views of Squam and the White Mountains. I'd definitely recommend doing it in the fall.

it was an amazing hike! The top gets a bit sketchy but such a rush when you get to the top! I think the worst part about the experience was the acorns! I highly suggest this hike to anyone but prepare well. Weather and timing and having the proper tools are a must!

This hike was beautiful! A steady incline with a few steep grades. I loved this hike, it is definitely a moderate trail. My counter part does not agree, he chose to pack an extremely heavy pack for his first time out. We took the Cliffs up, which I loved Just be advised there is a rock tunnel you must go through, we had to take our packs off to get through.

beautiful views! well worth it . we did the loop . It was awesome!

Fun hike
