Easy hike up the car path. Some branching trails, but we didn't explore. We went on a rainy day and still had great views with the breaks in the clouds. Would be incredible on a clear Fall day!

We visited the park when we were visiting NH in August. We did the nature walk and climbed to the top of the tower, which has amazing views of the White Mountains including the Presidential Range.
