An extremely popular trail rewarded by one of the best Lake Region views.

Tom Robson

Overview

May be closed during the muddy seasons.
Rattlesnake has some of the best "bang for your buck" in the Lakes Region. This wide singletrack proves simple to follow, easy to ascend/descend, and rewards with great views.

The one downside of Rattlesnake is its high traffic nature. On a clear day this is probably one of the most heavily crowded trails in NH.

This trail is officially called Old Bridle Path.
Features: Birding — Lake — Views — Wildlife
Dogs: Leashed

Need to Know

The main parking area fills up pretty quickly on a nice summer day. Park along Rt. 113 if necessary.

Description

Start at the Old Bridle Path trailhead and take Old Bridle Path up the mountain. This wide singletrack trail is well maintained and has several stairs to increase ease of use. Additionally, keep an eye out for birds and wildlife - although Old Bridle Path can get incredibly congested with people, the birds don't seem to mind!

Once at the top take in those amazing views! Directly below you is Rockywold Deephaven Camps and Five Finger Point. If you're looking to take a dip in the lake, head down Pasture Trail to Five Finger Point Trail.

To finish, head back down the Old Bridle Path exactly the way you came.
