Great trail with a beautiful view as a top. A challenge, but not too steep. Hiked with a toddler in backpack and didn’t have trouble.

Had a great hike today. In my early 60s and was my first hike of the year. I’m a slow poke and stop looking at things and needed the rest after some of the steeper rocky inclines. Took about 2-1/2 hours up and back including about 30 minutes hanging out at summit. Rating of moderate is accurate. Challenging but not too much for me. Great views at top and lots of nature in between. Not crowded either as I’ve heard about Monadnock. I did reserve a parking space night before but at 8:30 didn’t need it. Better safe than sorry.

I would give this five stars for the huge turtle sightings alone; I only remove a star because of the smell of the sewage treatment plant for .5 miles of the trail.

Good bang for your buck. Not too challenging but excellent view.

There are two fairly steep parts in the beginning but don’t give up! The view is worth it.

So thankful for AllTrails!! Parts of straightback are not marked well. Otherwise a beautiful hike! So many dragonflies!! Minimal bugs (I brought high DEET spray though)

Major error on our part - forgot bug spray. The trail is infested with mosquitos and black flys.

Views unlike any other for this duration/elevation. Slippery but safe as long as you wear proper shoes. The bugs were nasty though and I needed DEET all day long. No microspikes needed. I wore a mask and practiced social distancing, which others in turn respected but very few others with masks. 10/10 would recommend. 7.2 miles 4 hours total for me.

Went counterclockwise despite recommendations so I would finish with the falls. The first leg up the cliffs was TOUGH after a day of long hiking prior. The combo of leaves on gravel made it challenging and a guarantee to be slippery if wet on the way up. Arethusa Falls trail is so much better marked. Cliffs trail has many fallen trees and you are likely to get turned around a few times. No micro spikes. Minimal mosquitos. I wore a mask and practiced social distancing, all were respectful to it.

5/30/20 Started at 8am and there were a couple of parking spots left; returned at 1:30pm and there were many cars parked all along the road. Buggy for the first and last mile. Some snow and ice in between both summits, but I didn't need spikes. Very muddy in places, waterproof shoes were a must. Someone else told me the overlook path at the Passaconway summit was both flooded and icy/snowy and much too maneuver-ey so they turned back and did not recommend I try it. Very fun and rocky before Whiteface summit and was more like rock climbing. No ticks on me at the end.

Easy 2 miles. Super kid friendly with great spots to get in the Pemi

Stunning. The trail was a bit muddy but worth every step for the views at the top.

Awesome trail. Nobody else on the trail, for once, so didn’t have to rub elbows with people. It was so much fun checking out the tin mine and looking for the random hidden animals in the trees. Very nice view at the top to have a picnic and enjoy the breeze. Yes, it is buggy.. You’re in the woods, bring bug spray

Great trail. Tricky at about 2500 feet and above due to snow. Spikes make it faster, but aren’t mandatory.

My boyfriend, lil Chihuahua, Chloe and I enjoyed this walk. We wanted to hike to see waterfalls, but the Shannon Brook Trail was more of a walk than a hike. It was very easy, great condition and the waterfalls were amazing!! We went the first week of May and the weather was beautiful. No bugs, but we did see a few other couples walking their dogs along the trail.
