Mount Major Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"A popular hike to a broad bald summit and a stunning view of Lake Winnipesaukee. While the name Mount Major does not refer to the size of the mountain, it does describe the view. The expansive summit may not be high in elevation, but you feel like you’re on top the world, or at least Lake Winnipesaukee.
The bird’s-eye view of the lake is the finest of the region, extending from the narrow southern tip across the broads and on to its northern shore. There are other hikes at the southern end of the lake, but none with an expansive open top like Mount Major’s.
There are a number of children’s summer camps on Lake Winnipesaukee that climb Mount Major as an outing, so there can be lots of kids on the trails here, even midweek, throughout the summer."
