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

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!
