Great relatively easy hike up Bald Knob Trail to a beautiful overlook. Then through an overgrown trail to Turtle Back Mountain (definitely need GPS and a keen eye). Turtle Back Mountain has a nice more intimate overlook. Trail back down the mountain was easy. Overall, nice quick day hike. Shannon Brook Trail was closed for restoration.

I went on a rainy and foggy day so no views. Nice trail and well marked!

Love this trail. Beautiful views of Lake Winnipesaukee.

Part of the trail was washed out but you could still get to the waterfalls. Great hike. Pretty steep down and then back up the other side.

A fairly easy hike on which I saw kids under 6 and adults well over 60. Nothing exciting, but a great view at the tower at the top.

Most rewarding views for a quick hike

Old dog out for walk. Beautiful sunrises over water. Not long or strenuous

Did this hike in July, up Roberts and then the rest of the loop. Omg so tiring by the end of all the switchbacks on the way down! My only complaint is be aware the ridge line trail is an old bridal trail, meaning pretty tall grass by July, meaning ticks. I pulled off two post hike and felt that was a low number considering.

Went here for a nice afternoon geocaching adventure in mid August. At the point, my boyfriend managed to hide an engagement ring in the cache for me to find it for me to then find, and I said yes! Pretty awesome that we were there on a Sunday afternoon and no one else came in the half hour we were there. Hope to be back soon.

Love these paths level and wide good elevation in beginning then levels out

Good for us older guys. Pretty water views. Nice geo-cache.

Excellent moderate trail. From the parking lot we took the Red Hill Fire Tower trail up to the fork. Went to the right up the Cabin trail to the summit. Don’t forget to stop along the way and read the provided information and view the old homestead properties. Up was about 110 minutes. Half an hour at the summit including trekking up the fire tower. Best views from the tower. Then down the Fire Tower trail to the base. Three hours 10 minutes hiking and 30 minutes at the summit. Not many bugs here in Kate August. Great hike!

This was my very first trail to hike. It was fantastic. Loved seeing each of the waterfalls.

A bit buggy but overall a good trail. Did a small side trip to go to what the locals call Turtle Back Mountain so did three peaks. Hardest part was the distance.

Beautiful views of Lake Winnipesaukee! This trail is very easy to follow and marked by orange blazes/small signs. Near the summit I saw 2 snakes that darted off as soon as they saw me--tread lightly up there! There is also a calf moose skull at the summit sign as of today. Round trip, a little under 3 hours.

This was my first time taking our dog on a real hike and we learned well behaved dogs are welcomed off leash. I’m not as fit as I used to be and this was a bit more than I expected going up the fire trail. That said round trip took my 13 yo daughter and I about 3 hours with a stop at the top for pictures and a few rest stops. The cabin trail is less rocky and easier going, we took that trail on the way down. Lots of wild blueberry bushes and streams for your dog to grab a drink or cool off.

Nice trail for families of all abilities. When young ones run ahead, just know they’ll be fine. No great changes in terrain or incline. They will meet you at the top begging to scale the fire tower. Bring snacks to give a little time before you tackle the tower!

This was my first mountain and I fully enjoyed it. Took about 3 hours. The summit does not have much of a view. There are views along the way so utilize those. Blueberries adorn the path. I highly recommend this path for a relaxing hike or for a beginner.

Amazing views of the lakes on this easy - moderate hike. The trail never really gets to steep and is really easy to follow. The blueberries are still out and everywhere. A nice fun hike.

Entirely lovely — nice views of the lake from various points on the trail — with a fairly disappointing summit. A riot or blueberries. Technical trail made for a fatiguing downhill. Totally doable for an 11-year-old and a young dog.
