A perfectly, somewhat challenging hike for two older, out of shape people. Just enough elevation to be a workout. A fair amount of rocks adds to the challenge, but not Mt. Washington rocky. The view of Crawford Notch and to the SE is wonderful. A great value for the effort. Well maintained trail and no trouble finding our way.

"Wooden bridges, the chance to toss stones in the water, and huge rocks make the walk around Saco Lake a great one for small children. Continue up a short climb of Elephant Head for impressive views down Crawford Notch." Read more
