Description

A solid trail with rewarding western views from the top and a good portion of the way up views to the east of squam lake in winter. Generally on the steep side but not too bad if taken slow. Follow the yellow markers, generally visible, sometimes spaced a bit far apart. Several minor water crossings 0.3 to 0.7 miles. Steeper sections from 0.9 to the 1.5 then at roughly 1.55 get much flatter. Nice viewpoint 1.4 miles in (1350 ft up). Then partial western views 1.75 to the top.

Great hike. Beautiful view south over lakes about 2/3rds of the way up. Mostly northern views at top. Moderately steep at times but not technical. 2mi — 13h 00m
