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

It has most of what anyone is looking for I a hike of its duration 3 miles round trip. Some parts are steep, but for a regular hiker not that long persistence... More

My husband and I hiked this trail shortly after peak foliage season. Although it was steep (we went up on the right and back down on the left), the views at the top were very rewarding! Although the trail is marked with yellow blazes, in the fall, when the leaves are on the ground, it is difficult to see how... More

Start your hike by crossing the Albany Covered Bridge. The gigantic boulder filled hike is peaceful and full of rock stairways and ledges. A steep hike at times but worth the amazing vista views from the lookout when you reach the top. I suggest a counterclockwise route as clockwise has a more intense incline towards summit.
