Took the mount major trail which is the shorter and steeper of the 3. The way down was a little sketchy to do with my dog as he was super excited and pulling along the way. I keep him on a leash.. We need to do a little more training before going on longer trails. Great hike with beautiful views.

Moderate for the first half and difficult the last mile. It was amazing though! Beautiful scenery, especially at the top. A great workout!

This is a great beginner hike. The views from the top are amazing. The hike itself is fairly easy.

Some of the best views in the Lakes Region at the top! Take the Main Trail (Blue) up for a work out and rewarding partial views and the Brook Trail (Yellow) back down for a quieter walk in the woods.Trails are very well marked and it would be difficult to get lost. Only drawback is that the mountain is quite popular so I would recommend getting up early on the weekend or go on a weekday for a quieter experience. Highly recommend!

Very nice hike. Easy to start, but then it gets a little steep and rocky towards to very top. My puppy loved it! The summit view is absolutely beautiful for a hike that only takes about 45 minutes.
