A beautiful and accessible mountain, much spoiled by a mega-tower

Kearsarge stands alone in Central NH, with an open rocky summit, so on a clear day you can see the Whites to the north, Monadnock and Massachusetts to the south, the Green Mtns to the west, and nearly to the seacoast to the east. You can drive nearly to the top and walk the last 0.5 miles, or hike one... More

On Friday Dec 2nd, My boyfriend and I (2 senior citizens) drove to Rollins State Park to drive up the auto road, have a picnic lunch at the parking lot, then hike .5 to the summit. When we arrived at the state park we saw the auto road was closed. What the heck, we wanted an adventure so off we... More

My adult daughter and I hiked Mt. Kearsage on Sunday, November 27, 2016. We hiked from Winslow State Park. The gate at the bottom of the hill was closed, so we had to hike about 3/4 mile up the paved road to the trail entrance. This slight inconvenience added to our calorie burn for the day. There was no snow... More

I went to Mt. Kearsarge with two friends last weekend. We parked in the the Winslow State Park parking lot - it was $4/person to enter there, which is really your only option to get to the two shorter trails. We chose to go up the Barlow trail (1.7 miles) and down the Winslow Trail (1.1 miles), which was fun... More

I recently decided to return to this mountain for the first time in a long time. Overall the climb was great and the paths are challenging. I took my new puppy and my girlfriend along for the hike and they enjoyed every second of it. The top of the mountain provides plenty of views, especially on a clear day!! If... More

Good bang for your buck hike. Easy to carry infant up, dog friendly. Quick hike with fire tower at the top and 360 views.

I was here with a hiking group and someone told me the trail was "difficult". I'm a moderate level hiker. I tried it anyways and I would rate it "moderate" (for the White Mountains, that is). It's a three mile up/three mile back trail. Most of it is in the woods, which was fortunate as it was a hot day... More

Great place for hiking. A few options depending on your choice of length and difficulty. The shorest and easiest is by starting at the Rollins state park, which is a short drive from Warner. Relatively short with rewarding views. This side is good for hiking with small kids too.

This State Park has a great few trails to the top. You can drive up the Warner side for a short walk to the top, or decide to go up the Sutton/New London side for a more challenging hike with more numerous vistas. Lots of dogs and people enjoy this hike, lots of parking. A great place for picnics. Leashes... More

I came here during a decidedly cold time with a fair amount of ice on the trail. The broth road was still closed so my hike was preceded by a quiet but lengthy walk up the access road. The trip up the mountain was very challenging with steep sections that would get your heart beating in the best of conditions.... More
