Suspect this could be a tough trail in snowy/icy or wet conditions, due to the large amounts of rock ledge.

Description

Starting from the small parking area on Wood Road, head out on the East Guilford Trail (Yellow), which starts off with a gentle incline through deciduous woods. As it begins to get steeper, the going becomes rockier and there are some scrambles. Several other Belknap Range trails intersect along the way, making it easy to connect and create a longer route.

After a fairly steep rocky stair-step portion, the trail crosses a few sections of ledge from which, on a clear day, spectacular views can be had across Lake Winnepesaukee and beyond. Beware—these ledges are slippery when wet!

Flora & Fauna

Largely deciduous forest.
