We recently visited the Alton Bay Area. Its so beautiful up there and we saw alot of cars parked along the road at the bottom of Mount Major. We decided to hike it. It has two trails that end up combining. The yellow trail takes more time but loops around and is not as steep as compared to the blue trail which is steeper though is shorter and more rocky. The two trails converge along the way. We took the yellow trail since we didnt know what to expect. Was somewhat rocky and has some little brooks to climb over so wear hiking boots (waterproof). Also bring water and dress appropriately for we had jeans on and it was warm so more breathable clothing makes for comfort (hiking shorts or pants). It seemed like awhile to get to the top but it was worth it. People also brought younger kids and dogs so if they could make we could.............Took the blue trail down which was steeper and alot of rock but shorter and it wasnt so bad. Took about 3 hours roundtrip.
