This trail isn't too difficult and has a nice flat spot at the top to have lunch.
Closed in spring.
Mt. Percival is a great hike that many forget about. It is a great alternative to Mt. Morgan or Rattlesnake
. The trail starts off pretty mellow getting to the mountain, and then it will climb. At about 1 mile in, it will start to get a little steeper, then around 1.5-miles in, it will be the steepest, although nothing over-the-top complicated or technical. There will be some rock slides with a switchback prior to the final ascent. Near the top, you can climb through some tight caves to get to the views or you can go around if you have dogs.
The top has some great views of Squam Lake. To the right is Mt. Morgan, and if you are feeling up to it, you can do the Mt. Percival - Morgan Loop.
