"Hike to see a fire tower and some of the greatest views in the region—and explore an abandoned mica mine! This could be the perfect trip for the youngest hikers. A short trail leads to commanding views and a fun trip up a fire tower at the top. Blue Job Mountain can be very busy on weekends, so if you are looking for a more secluded experience, try visiting on a weekday afternoon after school or for an early evening supper on the summit. Always bring a headlamp if you plan to be out in the late afternoon or early evening." Read more

"The hike to Blue Job’s fire tower is a popular one with local families. An easy, appealing climb leads to an open summit with views that stretch to Boston, the Atlantic, and the White Mountains. What more can you ask of a mountain? Because the views make the hike, save Blue Job for a cloudless, sunny day. From the northeastern side of the parking lot, head southeast (right) on a wide, well-worn path, following the orange blazes. At first glance, the world of field and forest seems limited to greens and browns. But ask the kids to look for reds, yellows, pinks, and blues, and you’ll all be surprised at how colorful nature is." Read more

I took my 9 year old nephew and my dog on this trail. It's fun and easy! Great views of Mt. Washington.

Short, but sweet! Took 8 Boy Scouts up this short but rewarding trail. The summit affords 360 degree views of Southern NH from the fire tower. This was a beginner hike for some of the boys as we work toward some 4000 footers.

a great little hike for all ages. Nice views of the seacoast and mountains. A pond in between peaks is good for skating before snow comes. Ton's of blueberries in summer.
