Great trail. 7 + miles round trip with all side trails. I’ve run the loop a few times and it gets hilly in spots. Great trail

Used spikes the hole trip and had no difficulty. The deepest part of the gorge is closed off but there are cute covered bridges that make the trip worth seeing. Trail was easily navigated

Gorgeous hike but definitely need traction especially near the bluff.

Very excellent trail for hiking!!! Great for dogs. Had a great experience with this trail.

One of my favorite hikes in southern nh

hiked this afternoon, quite hike didn't see anyone else on the trail. Pretty easy and has some decent ascents towards the the top.

It seemed like the trail just ended when we got to the end - saw some snow tracks but all circled back. looked like people may have tried to bushwhack and then realized it was the end.

Overall, quick easy hike that has some ascent - the red dots were easy to follow.

My first snowshoe hike! It wasn’t as hard as I thought. The closed I’m snowy evergreens made it feel like Lion, Witch, Wardrobe. When I arrived at the top...boom! Amazing view. Made it to top but phone died.

Thanks to all the snow shoers, we were able to make it just with microspikes! Gorgeous hike, beautiful view at the top. Plus our dog loved it ❤️

Great trail that rises at a gentle pace up to the Bridal Veil Falls Shelter then continues to the falls. As of today's hike snow-shoes were not needed. However, 2 plus feet of snow is expected tomorrow so at that time snow-shoes will be needed to avoid post-holing the trail. The falls are fully frozen and with caution I was able to walk to the base of the falls. Again, caution is required due to fast flowing water under the ice. Great hike for a high wind day as you will be well sheltered in the trees.

I want to go back with a mtn bike for sure! Great off leash spot as well

Walked the full loop for sunset and ohhh what a glorious spot it is to soak it in. Trails are well marked, coastal, plenty of parking, out house, and then there’s the wagon on the hill.

Nice loop very icy in 2nd half during winter. I think it will be impassable during mud season, too wet.

This a great trail to hike. Not took him traffic. Views are amazing. Well marked so you know where to go.

Yes the hut is open despite the shutdown!! Went on a foggy day and couldn’t see the view much, but still a great hike and the hut is so cool! Definitely need micro spikes, but didn’t need snowshoes as the trial is very packed down. Saw a few other friendly folks too! First mile is steep, then evens out nicely. Will have to go back to see that view on the lake!

flat and easy

Really enjoyed this hike as an intro to snow hiking in the white mountain. Micro spikes were absolutely necessary. Be prepared with extra layers and freezing temps. Amazing views and fun trail. Looking forward to this hike in warmer temps.

Easy. Few small waterfalls.

Easily the best effort-to-payoff experience we've had. We went during winter so we didn't have to pay and there were not a lot of other people around. The park is not maintained during the winter, so the snow on the paths isn't shoveled and there are no rangers patrolling. Be careful on the wooden paths as these can get very slippery.

A beautiful winter hike. definitely need some spikes in step icy slopes. good views, varied terrain, and different ecosystems. wonderful.

Got lost both times...but it’s a beautiful pond. Wanna go back with a bike

Fabulous hike! I definitely recommend at least bringing microspikes if not wear them. The fire road is very icy. Boulder trail was clearer than the fire road but still could have used microspikes today. Beautiful views and the rock formations are amazing! Makes you feel quite small next to the boulders! Came across a few people out free climbing with mats on the boulders.

Great hike, nice trail, snow is soft packed. Wore spikes, but not even necessary. decent views at the top and a good little work out.

Anyone know if the hut is open right now due to the govt shutdown? Thanks in advance.

My first 4K. Pretty easy hike done in the fall right before first snowfall. Also added the side trail out to the ski area for some photo ops. Steep in the middle but still manageable for a rookie like I was at the time.
