We realized our mistake when we reached the wrong place good 40 minutes from here. changing directions to "west" rattlesnake mountain in holderness corrected the mistake. Again there... More

Super easy hike, one mile up to a great view! Good for kids and complaining teens. We did it in the pouring rain and still had fun.

This is a great family easy hike or any age. It does get crowed so the earlier to head up the better. The trails are wide to accommodate the influx of people hiking.

Not too tough...some uphill grades and lots of roots and rocks...rated easy to moderate, but I would put it on the easy end despite getting a bit winded in places. The view is worth every step as you arrive at the top and look down on Squam Lake. If you are in the area and have a couple of hours... More

Not much to say other than its a mile in and a mile out :) easy walk for most people only a slight incline - I think it is a 400ft elevation gain from park to summit. From the Summit you can take the Ridge trail over to Rattlesnake East ( 0.8mi each way ) east only has one spot... More

View is wonderful. A bit too popular if you are trying to get away...some trail issues with roots and rocks.

As many people have pointed out, this is an easy hike with stunning views. I like to take my first-time NH guests to Rattlesnake Mountain for a neat walk and a WOW! reward for just the right amount of effort. You get a great combination of a do-able one mile hike, interesting plants and outcrops, and a spectacular view of... More

The hike from the car park to the viewpoint is just over a mile, just be careful with the exposed roots. I would suggest taking bug spray too, just to make the walk more comfortable. View is stunning and well worth the hike, ideal for that moment of Zen.

A fairly easy hike with gorgeous views as a reward. I highly recommend, even if all you need is a leg stretch along the way to somewhere else!!
