“An extremely popular trail rewarded by one of the best Lake Region views.”— Tom Robson
The one downside of Rattlesnake is its high traffic nature. On a clear day this is probably one of the most heavily crowded trails in NH.
This trail is officially called Old Bridle Path.
Once at the top take in those amazing views! Directly below you is Rockywold Deephaven Camps and Five Finger Point. If you're looking to take a dip in the lake, head down Pasture Trail to Five Finger Point Trail.
To finish, head back down the Old Bridle Path exactly the way you came.
