This is quite a challenging hike especially going up the smooth rocky surfaces uphill. The view at the top however is well worth it. Amazing 360 degree view of other mountaintops and early fall foliage (we went on 9/16). Downhill path is easy but could be a little better marked especially in the rocky areas (look for the cairns). Overall one of the best hikes I have done!

We have done this hike multiple times in all seasons. There is a large parking area due to the popularity of this hike. You can minimize the crowds by going early in the morning or in the off season. Grades on the lower portions of the loop are moderate, while the upper part is very steep. This is one of our favorite short hikes in the area.

We've done this counter-clockwise 4 times now and I would recommend going in this direction particularly if the ledges are wet. Today they were dry and we had a great hike over Mounts Welch and Dickey. Great way to celebrate Columbus Day and share these mountains with our friends.

We recently completed the entire loop. We went the way that most of the guides indicate, i.e., in a counter-clockwise direction. I STRONGLY recommend that you do the loop trail in the clockwise orientation because the view are MUCH better in that direction. The grade going clockwise is so much easier going up. What goes up must come down. That means, there are a few steeper sections going down when you go clockwise. If you have any ankle or knee problems DO NOT go up this trail from either direction, go ride the tramway up Cannon Mountain, about 1/2 hour up Rt. 93.
