Saco Lake Trail Professional Review and Guide
"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."
--Robert N. Buchsbaum, AMC's Best Day Hikes in the White Mountains (Appalachian Mountain Club Books).
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.
