We found ourselves with a few extra hours to pass on Friday afternoon. We happened to have a list of hikes in the North Conway area from an earlier stay. Looking down the list, Boulder Loop was appealing. There was easy access from the Kancamagus highway, total distance of 3 miles with a rating of "Moderate" on the list. The... More

This is a lovely walk with great views, but beware, there is very little information about the difficultly and ruggedness of the walk. It is a tough climb and hard underfloor even with good walking shoes. In the main the path is well signposted but there are times when the yellow marks on the trees are not easily seen. The... More

It was a hot day but still great 2.5 hour hike. View from the top was beautiful. Trail well marked. Not too crowded.

Am I glad I made this trek, yes! Should I have stopped more along the way to catch my breath, yes. I can walk for miles but steep climbs are tougher for me. I needed to take more time to sit on my way up and there were more than enough beautiful spots to stop at. While the climb was... More

From the covered bridge parking on either side of the swift river enjoy a 3 mile out and back hike, or a three mile loop! This is a perfect moderate hike for families. If you do it clock wise from the ledges 1.3 mile sign you will be rewarded with good ups and level terrain with great rewards before reaching... More

Boulders the size of houses. Able to follow folks that packed down the snow for us. About 3 hours total hike. Nice sunny day and worked up a good appetite. Not young kid friendly. Some views at the top.

An absolutely fun hike of three miles. Views from the top were gorgeous. Very steep in places and snow was packed. Slippery at times so mini spikes are highly recommended. Parking at trail heads along the Kancamagus Highway cost a few dollars, but a little known fact is that if you have a National Parks Senior Pass, place it on... More

Went up this 3 mile loop trail Saturday of Columbus Day weekend. 1,000ft elevation was totally worth it for the great views. Peak color this weekend.

Our plan for Saturday was to hike to Nancy and Norcross ponds. Mother Nature, however, had other plans as rain was to begin some time after noon. Mother Nature always has the right of way and we chose a shorter, closer to home hike on the Boulder Loop Trail. This turned out to be a very beautiful trail. The person... More

I hiked this trail after having spent the afternoon lounging along the banks of the Swift River tucked just under the Albany Covered Bridge watching the kids swimming and playing in the river's current. This little slice of heaven is my favorite place along the Kancamagus. The Boulder Loop Trail begins just across the road from the parking lot. If... More
