Main trail is mostly gravel but if you follow trail offshoots to see additional towers it’s pretty grassy. The view where signs direct you is best but exploring the other areas was fun, just don’t expect more views.

A beautiful trail along the Sugar River, with some gorgeous covered bridges, which my wife and I much enjoyed. The ATV users were generally polite. But note: (1) Some parts of the trail have very, very sandy soil. My wife, an accomplished RAGBRAI rider, had to portage her Diverge, with 35mm tires, at one point, as did I coming back, riding a Warbird with 40mm Maxxis Ramblers. (2) The ATVs kick up great amounts of dust, so be prepared. (3) The entire trail is slightly downhill from Newport to Claremont, as the Sugar flows to the Connecticut. (4) Unless you ride at a decent pace, you may have bug problems.

Easy hike with a good view?!

Such an underrated trail... The view at the top is magnificent! I certainly would not rate this hike as moderate. It's very easy as it's a steady gradual incline directly to the view and to the summit on a gravel ATV trail. There isn't much space to park and you can't block the gate. The distance I recorded was 3.34 miles. There are 5 towers to visit, the first 2 being at the view, which there is a big sign saying "view" and points to the direction to go. I saw a lot of frog eggs in the puddles, so please be careful in your footing this time of year. This hike is definitely worth it, the view is exceptional.

liked the view. very nice hike.

I like doing this loop sometimes but the climb up I would say would be slow if you were with a kid.

BEAUTIFUL day spent with the kids. They rode bikes, we walked. We saw a momma goose on a nest, played in the mud by the river, and wildcrafted some yummies!!

This is a nice area but not marked at all. I think I was suppose to go straight at one point but it was posted private property. so I hiked it but not all of it.

Pretty good climb, but nice view! There are VIEW signs that help out a lot. I spoke with a landowner on an ATV up there, seems nice, but very protective of his land (understandable). Sounds like he just wants everyone to respect the land and the signs. The Keep Out sections in particular (just wants his own private area on his land which I can certainly understand). Parking is near or to the left of the orange gate. There are signs not to block the gate or the driveway across the road.

Less trail and more dirt/gravel road in most places. Nice easy hike that can be done within an hour and with kiddos. It’s steep going up but super safe for impulsive or new hiker littles.

I completed this trail in two different half-section trips. It is gravel the whole way and reasonably passable on a hybrid bike. There are beautiful views of the Sugar River along the length. For those trying to socially distance, it was minimally trafficked on the two times I went, which were both clear weekday evenings. As far as shorter rail trails in NH go, I would have to say this is my favorite

Great trail! Really loved it. The Gravity Cavity is no joke! Looking forward to doing it again. A few cars in the parking lot, but everyone on the trails was extremely respectful about physical distancing. There was enough side trails, that we didn’t interact with to many people!
