Trail shows signs of overuse. Was mostly ice from the half way marker up. Great views from the summit
I hiked this with my 7 year old son and we met several families with even younger children and also one with a visually disabled child! The trail is not without challenges though as it is steep and rocky in places, but this is also what makes it fun. At the top there is a fire tower. We climbed the tower, signed the guest book and chatted with the friendly fire warden.
Great short trail. Very moderate grade, great views with a nice open summit. We did hike in winter so it was a little icy.
Great hike! Very quick but beautiful!! We will be hiking the mountain from Rollins State Park very soon.
The Mount Kearsarge, Winslow Trail can be hiked in one of two ways. If you want a could climbing work-out (moderate rate), you can take the Winslow Trail to the top of Kearsarge Mountain and then take a less strenous hike down the mountain by taking the Barlow Trail. Or you can do it the opposite way. Both trails start at the same location and they merge back together near the summit of Mount Kearsarge.
