Easy hike that begins with the famous ruins. It's an unmarked trail, but easy to figure out (most of the time). Completely covered by tree canopy, so great for sunny days as you will be in the shade the whole time. But that also means no great views from the "top."

Good 2 mi (?) loop. A few good vistas of surrounding area and small pond. Woods lovely. A few steep and rocky spots.

My photo group hit this just right by visiting on Oct 5th, the foliage made for stunning backgrounds. The ruins and the staircase are really cool. The trails were NOT well marked! A pond was depicted at the top of a loop so we followed the trail expecting a remote pond. It turned out the map is wrong and it... More

This is a beautiful natural spot, with well-maintained hiking trails to a pond and scenic overlook. It also has an interesting history, and scenic ruins of an old mansion. Great place to bring the kids!

Eerie place with an amazing history. If you park in the parking area it's an easy/short walk to get to the ruins. We stayed about an hour and had a GREAT time. Be careful, lots of broken glass on the ground.

This is a very interesting site. The ruins are said to be haunted- my laborador and I found this in Haunted Hikes NH by Marianne Oconnor. The hike trails are moderate, yet not difficult if you are used to walking in fall in NH. Follow trail markers carefully. The views are worth it. We will definitely go again for a... More

This was a great forest walk, but not an easy one. Be prepared to walk up hills, down hills, over rocks and small streams. Bring bug spray too and watch out for poison ivy. We loved the walk but weren't prepared for such a strenuous one. It took us 2 1/2 hours to walk the loop and go off on... More

I Love this place , a bit difficult to find. It is like an enchanted forest. Madame' Sheri was known to drive though town with her Horse & buggy naked. The hike in is easy and then there are several trails to choose from depending on the level of challenge you desire.It is pet friendly and your dogs can climb... More

We hiked up the shorter route and enjoyed the view at the top.

This hike is famous for the stone foundation and stairway that remain from a mansion that once stood on the site. Books have been written about the roaring 20's and the parties that once happened here. The foundation is fun to look and walk around and the nearby hike is nice as well.
