Super easy hike, took about 45 min with a nice slow climb, nothing strenuous. Had 5 dogs with me and a 8yo and they loved it. Amazing views of the Squam Lake Region at the top! Must take the time for this-plus a great little...More
We used to vacation at RDC when our kids were little. This trip was just my husband and I and we stayed at the Squam Lake Inn and hiked west rattlesnake one afternoon. It is an easy hike— we saw folks of all ages up...More

This hike is well maintained and moderate to walk. It took us about 40 minutes to reach the views, and it was well worth it. My wife said it was the most beautiful view she has seen, and that is saying a lot! Do this...More

I am not really sure of the exact distance, but I would be inclined to agree with the folks who say it is less than two miles round trip. I did my last hike when I was in my mid sixties, and it was no problem at all.
