I am fortunate to live in the shadow of this beautiful place. I would love to hike to the summit but physical limitations prohibit. My 11 year old grandson, his dad and grandfather hiked the Piper Trail today and my daughter has hiked to the summit several times. My husband hiked it when he was 60. I would highly recommend...

My husband and I took our 15 y/o son and 4 of his friends on this hike. We did the Champney Falls trail (off rt. 112) and then the Pike trail for the final 0.4 miles. The Champney trail was well maintained and quite attractive. We didn't find it too difficult. You had to walk over large rocks on the... More

This hike was labeled moderate/easy. The trail was pretty and manageable. I read about "light rock scrambling" at the summit. I didn't agree and as I'm afraid of heights had a very difficult time the last .4 miles. There was quite a bit of climbing. I did eventually decide to go up and didn't feel it was dangerous, but be... More

My husband and I started our hike by taking the Champney Falls trail from the Kangamaugus highway. This was a nice easy 1.5 mile hike to some beautiful falls. Then, on our way back, we saw a trail for Mount Chocorua which was 2.1 miles away. We decided to go for it and we weren't disappointed! The hike was a... More

Mt Chocorua can be a relatively easy hike or quite challenging depending on which route you take. Satisfying hike with rewarding views. Well traveled and maintained. The 20-somethings in our neighborhood hike it in the morning and waterski in the afternoon.

Of the three main mountains in the Tamworth area (Whiteface, Passaconaway, Chocorua), Chocorua is the smallest. It is a relatively easy hike, with some trails along beautiful forest streams. The top third of the mountain is tree-less, so there are great views from the top. And when you get done, you can swim in Lake Chocorua and look back up... More

Went up via the Liberty trail and found it to be a very enjoyable 8 mile round trip hike. The trail is well maintained and only has a few somewhat exposed ledge parts near the top. I don't like exposure and this was manageable. Went up on Christmas day 2015 and it was 58 degrees on top! Amazing views.

I really enjoyed this hike up via the Brook and down via Liberty. Took about 4.5 hours in total with breaks, and some really challenging times on the ascent, but if you are fit and tenacious you can handle it. A lot of boulder and rock scrambling and cliff ledge maneuvering on the Brook. You just need to stop occasionally,... More

Just finished my third hike up Mt. Chocorua over a span of about 20yrs. I have always gone up Piper and did so again with a friend of mine who had never been. The weather was a bit warm, but overall very nice. Views spectacular as always. This time I opted to come down differently by taking Middle Sister trail... More

Don't forget your $3 for the car park at the Piper trailhead. A minimum 7 hour hike. Wear good shoes, the granite can be slippery after rain. Take plenty of water, granite heats up in the sun and radiates it back. Check all weather as the summit is quite exposed. Be prepared and don't under estimate this mountain. Do all... More
