We arrived at the Trailhead at 9:00am. The bathrooms clean & in order. This was my wife 's first time up the mountain. We choice the Piper Trail off of Rte 16 in Albany, NH Tai was forecasted by we choice to go anyway. We did experience some showers by for the most part it was merely cloudy with breaks... More

This hike is fairly strenuous but the views at the top make it well worth doing. The footing is tricky at times, especially close to the top when you're climbing up rock. It'll take the better part of your day to do this hike as you'll need a little rest time at the summit. Would definitely do again

Hiked up Mount Chocorua in July. Pretty strenuous hike especially the "staircase" of stone and the flat stone. The 4.5 mile hike up to the top was worth it, the top is above the tree line and all rock. The view is absolutely spectacular. Plan for a long day of hiking and do not take pets,

A lot longer of a hike than Mt Monadnock, but I found this one to be easier, (perhaps I am getting better at hiking...doubtful). My wife and I took 5:30 to climb up and back on Monadknock, and this one took me 4:30 to climb up and back (not including summit sitting time). An immediate crossing of the water, slick... More

The long climb is well worth the effort. My favorite trail is the Champney Falls trail. A bit longer than the Piper trail, but not as steep. The views are tremendous at the top, especially during the foliage season.

I love Mt. Chocorua, but any guide that tells you a trail is "easy to moderate" is lying. Getting to the top is "moderate to hard"--and pretty hard near the top--whichever way you go!

We've done many, many hikes and this is, by far, our favorite. We took our border collie with us. What a trooper he was! He scrambled up steep granite cliffs like he had glue on his feet. It's a moderately tough hike but, if the weather is good, it's about as perfect a hike as you'll ever take!

This is a moderate hike up a well maintained trail. On a sunny day you can see for miles and the view alone makes the climb well worth it, Be sure and pack plenty of water and snacks as there are no facilities at either end, If you want to up the pace and can handle a harder climb (we... More

I hiked to the peak of Mount Chocorua this fall with my children, ages 12 and 7. They both love hiking and were excited for it, so even though it was three hours up and two hours down, they had a blast! The trail was well marked and easy to follow, but it was definitely a workout! The views of... More

We took our two boys hiking on Mount Chocorua recently. We were joined by another family who had three sons. So between the two families, we had five boys from age 5 - 11. All the boys made it up to the top without much struggle. I was quite surprised at the rocky climb at the end...but well worth it... More
