    What a great hike! Views from both mountains well worth the work! All dog friendly and even has a spot to put feet and paws in the water after the hike. Highly recommend!

    This was a great way to get to both Kinsmen peaks. The lower 2/5 of the trail was super gentle and soft underfoot.

    This was a really good hike. Ascent up Old Path which was steep and challenging in a good way. Not a ton of bugs. Went right at the split to South Doublehead. Pretty easy trail with minimal climbing. Gorgeous gorgeous little trail pull off on the right but kept going up the spur trail. It was eh. Ended up hiking back to the gorgeous spot and had some lunch. Double backed to the split and this time headed left toward North Doublehead- let me tell you- after my jaunt around South I wasn’t ready to go straight up again but North Doublehead was! Good steep rocky climb for 0.3 miles. You see the cabin as you summit. Go behind the pit toilet for the view. View is ok- 7/10 as far as 52 WAVs go in my opinion. What I was really interested in at the lookout spot were the two yard stick sized rattle snake skins (yes confirmed- only one snake has that kind of “butt” end shape). I was not entirely surprised as I saw two little snakes on my way up but I didn’t hang for too much longer after finding them. Doublehead Trail descent- boring and buggy (May flies, mosquitos and horse flies oh my!) This is where I lost stars on this hike. Yes it’s definitely more moderate and nicer on the knees but there is poison ivy and high grass throughout the trail and it just goes on and on... kinda like a ski trail (duh). Definitely glad I wore long pants as recommended on a review. This was a fast hike for me - about 3.8 miles in 2H 30ish M. I’m a slow hiker- usually a 1.4-2mph pace to put that in perspective.

    Went after a large rainstorm yesterday and the mosquitos were thick. Very wet and muddy trail at-least 50% of the time . Several small mini ponds to bushwhack around during last mile and very slick coming down. Going up first mile follows a water fall and river. Really pretty. Total of three small water crossings today. Was pleasantly surprised to arrive with gray skies then summit to really cool blue skies with cotton candy white clouds. Only true complaint- eating spider webs in the way up lol. Great hike but not a favorite.

    A great challenging hike. I’m glad I left my dog home, he would have slowed me down. Slippery rocks but overall a beautiful day.

    This is an awesome hike. Slow grade for most of it, really only one mile of climbing. There was one section where they have added a ladder. My dog was able to navigate it, but it may be too much on the way down for a senior dog. Black flies were brutal in early June, but it’s New Hampshire—- what else can you expect?

    A few blow downs that are cleared to get through. Trail is in great shape and is a pretty steady incline with plenty of things to look at on the way. There are some great swimming holes along the trail for when the weather gets warm.

    Great little trail outside Bethel, ME. Lovingly built and cared for with great bridges and big crossings. Meanders along a stream and past Hidden Falls before ascending sharply to Long Mountain Ledges for a beautiful westerly view.

    Not a well worn trail. We hiked in the spring. Still some snow in the pines and at the top. A lot of the lower parts were boggy and some of the trails were streams. The top bit is very steep. We were planning on doing the whole lollipop loop, but couldn’t find any trail heading off the north side. Might be a bush whack?

    Snow was still pretty deep and snowshoes were a must. I found the 29 minute trip time to be way underestimated.

    Still new to snowshoeing this was my 2nd time out but it was a nice hike. Starts out easy and you even get background music from the ski slopes. The climb gets pretty steep after the side trail that gives you a view of the ski trails. From here on up it’s kinda boring and straight for awhile. Once I was near the top it got interesting the wind picked up and it was tough following the trail. It was snowing out so there were no views this day. Not a bad quick hike.

    My very first winter hike to a 4000”er, very warm at the bottom 47 degrees light rain cloudy no vis. However, it turned out to be a nice hike, it cleared up then got very windy and cooler. Clear blue skies but serious gusty winds up top, great views just couldn’t stay long because of the wind.

    This is a great hike. Its easy . The hiking trail is in real good shape. Easy to walk on. On this hike you will see 2 wooden bridges. You will also see flume gorge. There is a river you walk by also. Its a very fun hike. Allot to see. There is bear den and a wolf den also. There is large granite boulders to look at also. I loved this hike. Easy and allot to see. The visitors center is great also. It has a stage coach in there. Samples how they made wooden bridges also. The visitors center also has food in there to eat.

    The trail Sunday 1/5/19 was packed snow with occasional icy spots suitable for micro spikes most of the trail. Snow shoes could have been helpful only in the last 1/4 mile but were not necessary.

    A few days ago the trail was soft and slushy. It has since frozen solid and is now mostly iced up and uneven. No problem hiking with micro spikes.

    Trail was in good shape for micro spikes, no snow shoes needed. Crossing the stream was easy, someone built a bridge using some logs. This bridge didn't exist 7 days prior. Hike was given 4 stars because the summit was in the clouds.

    What an amazing hike. We reached the top around sunset and the views were some of the best you can get. This was a tough hike, but great practice for longer hikes in the area. It was nice and dry and I would not want to go if it was wet or had rained recently. I brought my dogs and they did just fine. We went on a weeknight and had the trail almost all to ourselves. There is a currently an active beehive on the West side of Mt. Dickey. It's roped off and there are instructions to get around it safely.

    We were expecting light snow, at least at elevation, but it was rain & fog the whole way. The open circle at the summit was curious, I’ll need to research into how it got that way. Even without rain and fog I think the best scenery is probably from Zealand Road...

    Great little hike, steep and loose gravel is some areas. Great views from the spur path and southhead summit. Limited views from northhead, but cute cabin. The ski trail coming down was very wet (week of rain) and the trail was moved and ended is someone’s private lot.

    Nice easy hike. Views from the summit were excellent. The downside being the parking lot is busy, very busy. The trail was crowded with people unfamiliar with hiking etiquette. Leaf peeping season definatly brought out the people and this being such an easy trail everyone went there

    Beautiful at the summit of Pierce, early fall foliage on the mountains surrounding, gorgeous multicolor lichen beds, and a view straight up to Mt. Washington (in and out of the clouds.) Crawford Path between the Mizpah Cutoff and the summit was muddy and occasionally running water, but nothing like springtime mud. Extra layers much needed above treeline.

    Hiked the loop clockwise, so up North and down South. The trail is in decent shape and the water was low, making the crossings easy. The steeps up North Hancock were dry. The views from the lookouts were amazingly clear and far-reaching. If you hike this loop on a clear day, don't miss the views.

    Hiked this trail during the middle of September and leaves have not started to turn. The trail only has two view points: one midway that is on one of the Waterville Ski Area ski trails and the other is at the summit. The midway viewpoint is more open. The viewpoint at the summit is tiny, and given the popularity of the trail, it was crowded at the top. At neither viewpoint is there a 360 degree view. The trail itself is well maintained, with steps in place even near the summit.

    Did this hike on 8/25. There are some trail closures on the lower sections of this hike that take you off the main trail and up some steep ski slopes. It extends the total distance by less than a mile I'd say. The slopes can be muddy, but we went on a day where it hadn't rained in a while and were lucky. The trail was crowded as is typical for a warm Saturday. We brought our dogs and kept them on leash the whole time, which I'd recommend for such a popular and crowded trail. The shelter was open and they had a water pump available about 100 yards further up the trail. We brought 2L of water per person, and 1 for each dog. Filled up at the shelter and again at the summit. Definitely a rigorous hike. The last 2 miles to the top took us probably twice the amount of time that the first two miles took. Don't forget sunscreen :)

    For a smaller mountain, this trip has much to offer. A challenging ascent to the rock face and beyond, and beautiful views above tree line. The water crossing was easy, with good stepping stones.

    We had a nice clear day with great views from the top of Frankenstein cliffs. I enjoyed getting the tough climb out of the way early, and relaxing at the Falls last before heading back to the parking lot. The Falls were a bit crowded and there were a lot of dogs.

    Fun hike to practice before hitting some of the more strenuous hikes in the area. Parking was very full on the weekend. We took our dogs and they had a great time. It's a bit muddy near the top, but there are elevated boards to walk along. A bit cloudy today, so the view at the lake was a little obscured for us. Washed the mud off the dogs at the stream thats right at the start of the hike :)
