Mount Olga Trail

It's not completely flat but should be doable for most people who are in anywhere near decent shape. I went in the fall and it was crowded next to the fire tower. There were a lot of families picnicking and taking in the fall foliage. However, despite the crowds, climbing the fire tower was exhilarating and the views of the foliage were glorious. It doesn't tend to be super crowded at the top because it's too scary for most children. The stairs are open to the wind and air. I saw a couple of people having to carry their terrified and crying kids down the stairs. Would not recommend for kids very little or afraid of heights.

I went up on April 12th. The parking area is nice. It's right next to the river and has a bench to change your shoes or gear.

It is only a couple of miles out and back but there are some steep inclines and narrow paths, especially towards the end. At the very end it is mostly large slabs of granite. The view at the top left me unimpressed after the amount of work it took to get up there. Most of the view was obscured by trees, but you could see Mt. Monadnock in the distance.

It was muddy in some of the shady spots and that combined with the steep slope on the way down made for slippage and falls.

4 miles each way nice paved path on both ends small section of road between the two and very well marked. Great for bicycling running and walking with or without the dog.

A friend and I did this trail in late march. The trail was still covered in snow, but we brought yak tracks and didn't have too much trouble. We came on a cloudy day, but the views were still outstanding. The funnest part of this trail was "butt sliding" the entire way down. Seriously, where waterproof pants and enjoy the ride. Had such an amazing experience and definitely will be returning for a summer hike up Mt Hunger.

I like to go fishing here! I also like how they do not allow motored boats on the pond, so it's very peaceful!

Wonderful trail. Worth the strenuous hike for some fantastic views of Lake Champlain, the White Mountains, and other peaks visible from the summit. A couple spots you need to be ready to make a good stretch at to get over some rocks. I hiked this last fall and it was a gorgeous day, slight breeze. Enough to wear a tshirt on the way up and then throw on a long sleeve tech shirt. Very well marked and it's a trail I would recommend to anyone.

Wonderful trail with a beautiful view; however, on the way down my curious dog decided to say hello to the wrong animal..... the next 5 hours were spent pulling out quills.

Great fun trail. Up, up, up. Small vista about halfway up, some fun stone stairs. The summit is a great spot for lunch, spent an hour enjoying the views and relaxing.
