Did this hike on a Sunday Morning while in the area for the White Mountain Boogie Blues festival. It was a nice easy climb to East pond. We did a short stop there and then continued on to Little East Pond, not really much to see when you get there so plan your stops at East Pond. We completed the loop in a little under 3 hours with our stops. All said it was an enjoyable hike and very relaxing.

This is a great little trail, it took us about 2.5 hours to do the whole loop. The climb up to East Pond is failry easy, and definitely worth it. We did not get a chance to swim, but it was inviting, maybe next time. Little East Pond is more of a marsh, not as nice as East Pond. I would recommend this for a morning or afternoon hike.

Good conditioning trail leading to East Pond--(gradual uphill for a mile). Had planned to have lunch at Little East but were diappointed at the absence of space. Remember to have your major stop at East Pond--Really NIce--Plenty of roam room
