Rumney, New Hampshire Map

Great first hike of this.
1hr 20 minutes round trip. 40 up. (44 yr old dad w/ 10 yr old boy) both of us were huffing and puffing on the reasonably steep uphill.
Fantastic views at the top overlooking Rumney and east towards Plymouth.

Great 360 vistas on top

Hiked with my 6 and 10 year olds.

Fairly easy trail. Nothing technical or difficult.
This trail jumps between a foot trail and snowmobile trail. First mile on footpath then .25 on snowmobile then finish the last .75 back on hiking trail.

Steady but gradual incline for the first mile until the junction with the snowmobile trail. A moderate incline the remaining mile.

I was expecting far less traffic than what we encountered but by no means was this trail busy.

Great hike for first timers or any skill level. Views are southern in direction with clear shots to Cardigan, Kearsarge, Lake Winnepasaukee, and Plymouth.

My 10 year old and I plan on coming back in the winter.

This is a nice hike. starts off easy, level and gradually gets steeper and moderately Rocky. Haven't hiked in years and I had no trouble( few brief rests) took me about 2 hours to go up and maybe an hour down. very few people I came across. nice views for the hike. enjoy

Really nice and easy trail. It took us not more than 30 min to get to the top and the view is spectacular. The parking is a bit hard to find since the sign is small and wooden attached to a tree.
There was some traffic on the trail but not too much- I went on a week day and it was after Labour Day, so maybe that made the difference.
Looking forward to going back there soon.

Great hike! A bit slippery but nice views at the top! :)

Nice quick hike to get one in for intermediate hikers. Took me 52 minutes to get to the top and it measured 1.8 miles one way... which would mean it's actually closer to 3.6 miles according to my gps. I think it would be a good but a bit challenging for kids. I thought it was a bit harder than Rattlesnake Mtn in Rumney maybe only due to the length. Very muddy despite it not having rained for 4 oe 5 days and a bit rocky but nothing that waterproof hiking boots can't handle. I did enjoy the sounds of sprinking/ running water almost the whole way up though. I might actually rate this more of a 3.5 honestly. The views were gorgeous on the day I went and I do think I liked this one better than Tecumseh on top. I do think it was worth the hike... but bring your poles for the way down.

I hiked on a weekday as I've been told weekends are very busy and hard to find parking. I did not see anyone the way up and just at the bottom I ran into a family. The view was breathtaking at the top. I suggest if you are hiking the loop when you get to the fork in the trail go to the right it will set you up for the exciting view at the top. It was a bit buggy near the top.

Very good small hike. Has it all!

Quick climb, good for beginners. The view is worth it!!!

Great views nice hike

Lovely, quick hike. Very few people on it. Trail isn't really marked, but the path is carved out well. Just make sure to take the hiking trail at the fork and not the snow machine trail.

Great hike - 45 min steady climb up. Beautiful view of windmills and surrounding landscape

A Good Easy short climb. Good start to Beginners. Gets a little steep at times. But worth the views on top.

Just starting hiking with my husband, we aren't in the best of shape but this trail is close to home. It gets pretty steep and is also very rocky. We will definitely feel it tomorrow. Took us 1.5 hours to the summit that's with breaks and being really out of shape. 1 hour back down.

Great short trail! Pretty steep most of the way up, make sure to wear good boots, especially for the descent. The view from the summit was well worth the work!

Definitely steep for the first portion of he hike gaining most of the elevation quickly in the hike. Views from the top were great! Only saw one other person on the way down. However, beware, very buggy this time of year, one of the buggiest hikes I have done recently!

Great short hike. I had the summit to myself. The Views are incredible! I only saw one blaze the whole way up. I needed spikes half way up for traction. Still snow covered in spots.

Bang for the proverbial buck. A short hike to a big vista. Not heavily trafficked. Be sure to wear orange in hunting season.

Excellent views from the top!

I would agree with other as I feel this hike was more moderately paced. The view fro the summit is beautiful especially in the fall. Well worth the trip to hike again for this Connecticut native .

We hiked this trail Monday last week and were the only ones on it! This is a very steep climb which gets you to the top fairly quickly. There are a couple of false summits and then when you get to the real summit WOW what a view! We were able to see gorgeous foliage reds, orange, yellow and green. Going down was more difficult than anticipated. As someone mentioned earlier the acorns really cover this trail, with the steep hike it almost felt like rollerblading down the mountain! Take your time!! We are two new hikers and with going very slow and stopping for a while at the top it took us 2 hours.

Very well marked trail
Make sure you do the whole loop at the top

This is not an easy trail as it is very steep. we could not reach the end as it involves climbing a large rock that was sleek with rain and slippery. the trail is beautiful but you need good shoes. the acorns make it slippery. Would go back.

The assent was surprising for an easy trail but well worth the view I guess the tree grew up so I missed the view of the water

Definitely a moderate hike. As others have said, it's a steady climb the entire way up. I'm a novice hiker and I would say it took me a solid hour and 20 minutes, stopping along the way. The trail is very poorly marked (if at all) but I had an AMC trail guide with me that really helped -- and I'd recommend. When I went up I only passed one other group as I was arriving, it allowed me to hike with my dog off the leash. The view is "okay" by White Mountain standards, but I think during foliage season it would be a great view. I'm not sure I'd take small children -- while the trail itself is well kept, I'd say it's a hike you as a parent don't want to have to carry your child.

Would definitely say the ascent is moderate, and then the views from the top are very beautiful.

We recommend dry conditions, no rain for several days previous as the trail is rocky and slippery when wet. My personal device recorded 4 miles in and out. The trail starts out very gradual but the steady incline steepens towards the top. The trail is not particularly well marked but usually obvious. The pano views at the top are outstanding.

Choose weather wisely. View isn't up to much on overcast days but limited chances to get up here on vacation. Also if you can do it without a 35 lb kid on your back that would improve things.

This hike was definitely MODERATE and pretty strait up for almost the first half, when you get to the fork you can go either way. That's the loop part. The view at the top was a beautiful view of Rumney and all surrounding mnts. All in all it was a good hike

Very rocky but a good hike. At the top you can see Rumney and Plymouth. Mnt Cardigan off to your right. Good hike for kids not to long.
