We did the Rattlesnake trail hike - well cleared trail and after a steep start evened out on top. 1.3 miles to the top - the view was ok as you could just see surrounding mountains. Not crowded on columbus day weekend.

Climbed the 0.9 mile trail with wife and 4 grandkids age 13, 10, 8 and 4. I thought the climb was a little difficult but the kids found it easy. But when you take the first step at the top you know it was worth it. WHAT A VIEW! Absolutely BEAUTIFUL. Do this trip if you can.

My pup and I did this hike over the Thanksgiving holiday in a search of a good view while steering clear of any mountains with ice on top of them. We were successful on both fronts here. The trail was dry but considerably steep. Not as tough as some of the trails in the Whites or near as long, but... More

Wonderful, varied terrain, not too steep, dog-friendly. Gorgeous vista at summit, complete with ravens and a hawk enclave (actually picked up my little dog protectively a couple of times...just in case!) The day we hiked Rattlesnake we found an abundance of wild blueberries growing all over the mountaintop. I would rank this hike as middle of the road moderate. You... More

There are some beautiful hikes around Rattlesnake mountain. I did the Five Finger trail down to the lake where a saw a loon. The trail had some steep areas but not too bad. The forrest is beautiful with a high canopy and not much undergrowth and it smelled so fresh and clean.

Easy hike to a beautiful summit. It can get crowded, and parking is limited...best to start out early. It takes about 20 minutes to half and hour to reach the top. There are other trails at the top that lead to the other side of the mountain.

This mountain in Rumney has some of the best sport climbing in the country. There are tons of climbs and you really do need to get the Rumney Climbing guide to get around. Wicked crowded on weekends, seriously! If you want to park, get there super early or go mid-week and have the place almost to yourself.

Located only about 25 minutes from Concord, this great little hike is perfect for hikers of all ages. It took us only about 45 minutes round trip, and we spent about that long at the top soaking in the gorgeous panoramic view. It was stunning...looking down at the majestic views of the lake and the surrounding homes/farms. The hike is... More

Rumney mountain trail is close to Plymouth and the loop can be done in less then an hour if you keep moving. The views are fantastic and there is seldom more than one other hiker on the trail.
