New Hampshire Map

This was a bit rough. Lots of turn offs if you aren't using a map app. Web map claims 5 miles which my wife and I didn't believe for a minute. Not a very scenic trail but it's a good workout

Lots of flexibility with these trails... Go high, go low. Short loops, long loops. On 5/21, I backpacked Deacon Merrill to Turkey Trot to Hamblett to Meeting House. About 3 hours total. Good challenges in some parts. Some trails are blazed while others are not. Either way there's no problem recognizing the trail.

trails were overall good. mosquitos were horrendous. make sure to bring bug spray.

Lovely at the beginning. Definitely a workout, but lots of small streams crossed, and small waterfalls all along the way. Made it to Lake Solitude which was out of this world. I hiked on a weekday alone and literally saw not one soul all the way to Lake Solitude. I was very much looking forward to the cliffs, however, got completely lost. I kept following the white trail what seemed to be miles, and then checked my location. I ended up heading about halfway down the Monadnock-Sunappee Greenway. I was super frusterated that I needed to turn around and retrace my steps but I then saw someone had painted "Scenic View" on a rock. I took the turn to at least get something positive out of my mistake. I think this could have been Lucia's Lookout? Honestly not sure.... I then noticed that the red paint continued, and someone had marked a trail down from the ledge that said "Trail to Mountain Road" which is where I parked! Instead of retracing my entire way back, I took the chance, and followed this mysterious red trail. THANK YOU TO WHOEVER MARKED IT. Although very steep in spots, and not technically a trail, I made it back down to mountain road. (Had to cross a sketch pond). I am thankful for this adventure, however would not necessarily recommend to anyone. I plan to revistit this summer to find the ledges, and actually reach the summit!!!

One of my favorites! Definitely take the Wapack up, and the Marion Davis down. Great views of Monadnock early on (not so much at the summit). I went on a weekday and literally saw 3 other people. Went more recently on a weekend, and it was busy, but not overwhelming. I was fortunate enough to see the Boston Skyline and snow covered Mount Washington both times! Fairly easy hike, and would absolutely recommend for new hikers!

Great hike with lots of different terrain. Gorgeous views. Great for dogs too.

New favorite hike! Went end of May 2017 starting up Falling Waters and down Old Bridle as recommended per the reviews - did not regret this decision in the least and fully recommend it. Crossing the waters took some legitimate rock hopping and balance but was do-able. Got steeper and icier the closer we got to Little Haystack. We had hiking boots on and wouldn't imagine doing the trail without them. After Falling Waters hiking the ridge was so much fun we didn't even mind the last bit of elevation gain. Old Bridle was definitely one of the better mountain decentering we've done. Definitely helps to be in shape for this hike. Took us 7 hours.

Still a bit flooded 3/4 of the way but accessible with water proof boots. Not much for scenery but the trails are well marked. Load up on the bug spray!

What a hike! It was in the 60s lower 70s and had a lot of clouds! Honestly the weather made it cool and no rain, the trail was still very slippery though. Lots of little waterfalls, well marked with blue. Towards the top was extremely steep with rock scrambles but when I got to the top it was well worth this scary experience. Gorgeous views for miles from every angle! Definitely one of the most gorgeous mountains. Would not recommend in bad weather, and if you are scared of physically climbing up to the summit although doable.

Great fun. Hiked with dog and my 7 yo stepson Wear good hiking boots !!! Little muddy and still snow around the summit in mid may

Wonderful views, great hike.
