Overview

Stinson Mtn. from Rattlesnake...
Stinson from Rattlesnake Mountain


Stinson Mountain located just north of the beautiful small town of Rumney, NH is a well known local hike. The hike, only 3.6 miles is a great family hike due the trail's easy to moderate pitches. The trail stays Class 1 throughout the hike and the views on top are great for the minimal effort needed. The views from the top of Stinson Mountain are excellent, especially to the south towards Mt. Cardigan and the Lakes Region. There is also a spur path to the southwest that gives views of Stinson Lake.
