Went up via the Liberty trail and found it to be a very enjoyable 8 mile round trip hike. The trail is well maintained and only has a few somewhat exposed ledge parts near the top. I don't like exposure and this was manageable. Went up on Christmas day 2015 and it was 58 degrees on top! Amazing views.

I really enjoyed this hike up via the Brook and down via Liberty. Took about 4.5 hours in total with breaks, and some really challenging times on the ascent, but if you are fit and tenacious you can handle it. A lot of boulder and rock scrambling and cliff ledge maneuvering on the Brook. You just need to stop occasionally,... More

Just finished my third hike up Mt. Chocorua over a span of about 20yrs. I have always gone up Piper and did so again with a friend of mine who had never been. The weather was a bit warm, but overall very nice. Views spectacular as always. This time I opted to come down differently by taking Middle Sister trail... More

Don't forget your $3 for the car park at the Piper trailhead. A minimum 7 hour hike. Wear good shoes, the granite can be slippery after rain. Take plenty of water, granite heats up in the sun and radiates it back. Check all weather as the summit is quite exposed. Be prepared and don't under estimate this mountain. Do all... More

A fabulous 360 degree view for a not that of hard day hike. There is a bit of scramble at the very end. Take a sweater at is windy at the top.

We just returned from hiking up Mt. Chocorua via the Champney Falls trail. It was a beautiful trail with a side trail leading to the falls. Since it is late summer, the falls were not running very fast, but they were still nice. Fortunately, before we visited, I had read some reviews on trip advisor about the falls being very... More

Very nice climb with breathtaking views from the top. Scrambling up to the very top of the granite dome might be tough for some, but the views are exceptional. The falls on the way up were nice and worth a look. Parking may be tough on a nice weekend day.

Mt Chocorua has a love picture taking area for this historic mountain. Water, trees, bridge, what more could you ask for?

Although I have not had the opportunity to enjoy the views from the top (both of my trips up the mountain have been on socked in days), the hike itself is pleasant and fun. The trail is mostly easy with limited icy sections even in winter. The top of the mountain is rocky and should offer excellent views on a... More

We are four middle-aged desk jockeys who try our best to stay in reasonable shape, and like to challenge ourselves on occasion. We picked a good challenge climbing Chocorua in November. The day was dry and cold, 33 degrees at the trailhead, and the Champney Falls trail was in good shape with only a dusting of snow from the night... More
