An easy hike but absolutely stunning views of waterfalls and rivers. Great place to go to relax and get away without actually getting away. Love taking my friends here!

Gives you a decent workout, but not too tough, the view from the summit(s) is very nice.

The ascent is moderately steep, but it is fairly level at the end. We did this in February, we walked straight across the lake. The views aren’t fabulous, as you are surrounded by mountains that are taller than you, but it is still pretty and unique.

In my opinion, this hike is overrated. The ledges are surrounded by mountains that are much higher, so the view–which is the hike’s main attraction–is not that great.

Not much to see until the end, but the view is very nice.

I wouldn’t rate it as “easy,” although it is fairly short. The view at the top is very nice, especially considering the effort required to reach it. Square Ledge has a large drop, so be careful if you have children or a fear of heights.

Great day for a hike! The trail is perfectly flat snowpack right now. Hiked in winter boots with micro spikes, which was perfect. No ice, just a nice smooth trail the whole way up!! Hiked with 2 dogs, 1 hr 10 minutes up, 45 mins down. Great views of snow capped presidentials in the distance. Passed a couple of people in snow shoes and one guy skinning up.

Decent hike, however, the views on the summit aren’t that great. I have heard that there are other viewpoints near the top.

Well Marked Trail, Took Red Trail up & down there are views that peek out to you as you wind up this beautiful trail. Fire Tower at the top offers great views with a map of each range north south east & west. Used micro-spikes for traction.

Very easy hike to the top, and once you get to the fire tower the views are great, 360 degree view and a great spot to watch a sunrise or sunset!

gets the heart pumping! the snow was nice and packed down for most of the way until you near the top - definitely recommend crampons! it was steeper in the beginning and throughout the middle but levels off towards the top. doable for any level hiker if you take breaks! our puppy did great! well marked! beautiful view - would love to hike again in the warmer weather.

Very easy hike, its very quiet and peaceful all the way up and if your lucky you can fins the bench at the top and take a seat!

Good hike, definitely has some very tough points at times but great views once you reach the top!

Awesome views once your at the top of A Peak but its a tough hike heading up to D Peak that can take alot out of you.

It’s a very unique hike, and easy as well but there are NO summit views which is a real bummer but its a good easy hike!

Fairly easy hike with some pretty cool views of Mt. Washington!

Not as tough as I thought it would be and the views are more amazing when you hike it rather then drive up it i feel because you have that sense of accomplishment to go along with it!

This hike some of the coolest views once you about half way up and again once your at the top, but the trail near the bottom is kind of crappy and washed out so be careful with that but overall really good hike!

Its an ok hike, nothing to amazing and not a great view at the summit, but overall not to bad!

I didn’t start this one to early afternoon so i knew i had to move if i didn’t want this to be a full night decent, but when i go to the top it was one of the most amazing sunsets i’ve ever seen, definitely worth the wait if you don’t mind hiking down in the dark!

Great hike! I got rained on hard out of no where on my way to the summit of lincoln, then as I’m coming down from lafayette I watched another storm pour on the same spot I was at earlier but miss me, it was so awesome to see and be that close to a storm but not get hit!

Went out for our first ever snowshoe hike, and picked this trail because of the good reputation and great views. We were not disappointed. The snow was perfect for snowshoes. We are somewhat strong hikers, and we were up and down in 4 hours. The trail is not a great challenge, although much of the trail is unspectacular, but it is a full sized mountain. The summit is VERY cool. Its a sharp pinicle that makes you feel you are out in open air. The views of Mt Washington were utterly stunning today (today was EXTREMELY clear with several feet of fresh powder). Be aware that Mt Washington is 19 miles away, so a super crisp view isnt guaranteed. We would've carried on the 0.6 miles to Middle Moat Mt if it weren't for the literally subzero wind chill.

All in all, this is a nice, sometimes uneventful, trail that leads to a wonderful summit.

For my first ever backpacking trip, my buddies took me up to the Whiteface loop. I’m an in-ships guy, I’m a collegiate level swimmer, but man did the first climb kick my butt. We climbed to Whiteface but didn’t get there until the sun began to set. We decided to stay on the summit for the night, then hike back down the way we came up. In total it was about 5.5 miles, but the elevation is what I think killed me as a first timer. But SO worth the view in the morning!

A lovely late winter hike! You can park on York Pond Road with no worries about the gate, as of yet, this late in the year. Our ascent was pretty slow with snowshoes, but coming down was easy. Trail is well packed as of this weekend, snowshoes still required.

My dog and a few friends did this trail in late August of 2017. The trail was very difficult but immensely rewarding. Bring plenty of water and supplies, Views are stunning throughout the trail. Great hike for experienced and well trained dogs.

Great hike if you are looking for easy one with great views.

Nice walk in the woods. Trail marked well. Not much in the way of views but peaceful with babbling brook and rushing river. Winding path with some rolling terrain, challenging enough to be a workout when cutting the trail with snowshoes.

Fantastic trail, especially for those just starting out.

Beautiful views from the summit. I hiked this in the fall & the colors of the trees were simply amazing. Very well traveled. Passed lots of friendly hikers of various ages.

Another great day. Worth the hike to the Panorama Pub.
