A well marked trail from Thompson Rd parking area to Middle Mtn to Peaked Mtn and back. Steep in some areas but a great view from Peaked. I was hoping for more from Middle mountain but a great hike.

Great hike. Some challenge for children or older folk (like me) but worthwhile.

Love it. Relatively easy for most everyone.

Vert easy trail!

Love this hike! If you have kids I wouldn't call it easy...it is a quick hike but towards the top it made me nervous with the kids because of the steep rocks. Overall though, AMAZING!

it was a nice hike. even bought a 12 small dog. she did this hike with out me picking her. up.

Nice easy hike, not a flat trail, the last 700 feet are pretty steep, but, hey, you're in the white mountains, nh.

An easy hike with my 7 year old and dog. We did the loop at the top, it was 2.7 miles total. Great views. Very crowded on this fall sunday, had to park on the road.

Beautiful views and a really scenic hike to the top.

Great easy hike. Less than an hour. Amazing view.

Beautiful trail! Hadn’t been hiking in a long time due to illness and decided it was time to get back at it. This was the perfect trail for me to get back into hiking! ⛰

We did it with our 6 year daughter - no issues! Perfect weather - Labor Day
On the way back we took the black cap connector trail , which will bring you down the hill on the other side of the top and connect back to the black cap trail (in my opinion, it was easier to get down)... just be careful- sand patches are slippery as my daughter found out :)

Not super easy but great fun with older kids and the views at the top are just amazing. Such rewarding views for a relatively short climb. Recommended!

Sweet!!!! Favorite Hike! You will not be disappointed...

This is a great family hike, the trails are well marked and clean. There is a nice view of the top of Cranmore as you near the summit.

Nice, clearly-marked trail, just in from the Green Hills/Pudding Pond parking area. Lots of quick elevation gain, but a great spot at the top. In terms of trail running, some mildly technical stretches, but also some tough, barely runnable stretches. Great spot for a short, steep peak "assault."

beautiful hike. definitely some hard work to be done but totally worth it. ❤️❤️

great hike!
though lots of tripping hazards (rocks and many tree roots)
After .8 miles of the hike the trail splits into 2 sections
On the left is a harder .3 mile path that involves a more steep incline with some rock scrambling
On the right is the easier .5 mile path that stays consistent with the path type of the trail. some rocks and roots in the path but easier to hike up.
Both routes are worth taking to see the beautiful view at the top!

Liked this very much. Good for the dogs and enjoyable for everyone else

Perfect hike for families with younger children. One of the highest visual-payoff-to-effort ratios you can find.

Amazing trail for family of 6. This was our first time in the White Mountains and a perfect hike for beginners. The trail is well marked with a beautiful forest canopy to start followed by a rocky ascent deserving of some fancy foot work. The kids couldn’t wait to get to the top. What a view! Well worth it. Spent 30 minutes snacking and taking in the amazing vistas. Coming down saw many hikers going up. We lucked out not having hikers on top. Will definitely visit next time.

A nice hike with some very scenic views at the top, but it is not ‘easy’ (at least not for a 65+ year-old who is reasonably fit). Elevation increases the entire way; lots of roots and small rocks to watch out for; and large rocks to climb on the last 1/4 mile. For me it was a medium-level hike (especially since it was hot and humid today), and a very enjoyable one.
