We had intended to hike up Tuckerman's to the cascades or even further but it was very snowy up high still so we went with plan B. Loved seeing the covered bridge, and no bugs out yet.

We enjoyed the walk w/ friends and family (kids as well). Covered bridge was a sight to see on it's own. We located the boulder which we think the loop is named after.

Beautiful trail, lots of hills, some wet areas and well named , as there are lots of boulders too ! We did this not really prepared, but were very pleased to have finished. The Albany covered bridge is a great photo op as well. There...More

This is a great hike for a family that is accustomed to hiking. The view at the top is great and very satisfying. Adults and kids will feel well accomplished and excited to have completed this trail. You don't have to be seasoned, but this...More

Wow, beautiful but the guides rate it as easy. Maybe for some but not for us & we are in pretty good shape. 3 miles with the last 1/2 mile pretty much straight up. BUT once you get to the top the views are amazing!

This hike has a great starting point at the Albany covered bridge. The counterclockwise route is steeper but still quite easy. Views are nice but not as good as some other nearby hikes of similar difficulty.

If you can do a moderate hike, this one is very nice. It is right off the kancamagus, not far from Rt16. There are two places to view the kanc and surrounding mountains from top. I recommend going clockwise, as the trail is circular. It...More

Don't miss the top! You need to take a short side trail to get up to the ledges and you'll walk right past the turn-off near the top if you are not paying attention. This isn't an easy hike but average families won't have a...More
