My boyfriend and I hiked the UNH trail counter-clockwise in February with little snow cover but a great deal of ice, so microspikes were in order. Lots of roots, some fairly steep terrain (particularly on the ledges, which were on the downward side for us. The view from the summit and along the ledges was fantastic. This was a moderate...

My boyfriend and I hiked just yesterday and we thoroughly enjoyed it. We are not avid hikers and this hike in my opinion is the perfect distance. It is a loop and you can choose to either take the less inclined way up or the steep way up. We chose the steep way which was a challenge but enjoyable because... More

What is classified as moderate in New Hampshire is no stroll in the woods. Rock scrambles, root choked paths. The folks up here must not have a problem with erosion because there are no switchbacks, straight up for the most part. Anyhow, we took this hike, all fussing aside, because of the ledges. Even though you don't get above treeline,... More

Hedgehog Mountain was a fairly strenuous hike, aprox. 4.8 miles round trip if you do the loop. The up is very up! We went around clockwise, saving the steepest part for the down hill, but I think it would be nice to go counter clock-wise, saving the view from the east ledges for after the summit. The east ledges were... More

The most important thing you need to know is to take the far left trail up the mountain and then loop back down on the right side trail. Basically, what happens is that you park and then hike for about 5 minutes on a flat trail that leads to the loop trail up Mount Hedgehog. DO NOT TAKE THE FIRST... More

Spent the weekend ATVing the mountain and surrounding trails. I can't begin to explain the beauty of the area and the views from the top of the mountain. There is wildlife galore, and trails for every skill level. To get to the top on quads requires expert skill and first aid kits, as the weather and terrain is unpredictable. Be... More

This is a killer trail that is up all the way but nice views at the top from various ledges. Took us 3 hours round trip.
