Mount Kearsarge

Mount Kearsarge Professional Review and Guide

"A short hike up this craggy little summit offers commanding views of the Connecticut River Valley, Mount Monadnock, Green Mountains, and, on clear days, Boston! Small, mighty, wild-feeling Mount Kearsarge’s bare, windswept summit offers some of the finest views in southern New Hampshire.

This 2.75-mile loop has a steep 1.0-mile ascent that can be challenging but doable for small kids and a gradual 1.75-mile descent. If you have a choice, always ascend steep sections
and descend gradual sections, as it is easier on your body and safer as well. The kids will thank you!"
