Lots of fun! Great views at the top. Gate was closed so needed to walk two miles up the road before starting, but still finished the whole thing in about 3 hours. Moderate, need good shoes.

Quick hike if you only have a few hours. Easy to moderate hike requiring good footwear. Good for kids. Many ledges on top for different views. In the far distance you can see Mt Washington on a clear day. Foliage starting to turn. Will have very nice views once leaves have all turned.

Awesome ride up hurricane mountain road to the trail. beautiful view up top. easy trail to follow, plus there are numerous other labeled trails as well. we saw a BABY BLACKBEAR on the way back. Walked right across the trail!

First 2/3 of the trail is an easy uphill walk. Next part is rocky. Last part is rock.

Stunning views of mount Washington valley.

Took us about 35 minutes to ascend.

Drive up Hurricane Mountain Road was interesting.
