A twenty minute stroll to the top via the green trail. Much less crowded than Mt Major was that particular day.
This is my new "back yard" and I do something with my dogs in the Belknaps 2-3 times per week. Probably the best is to park at the gate and do the Piper-Belknap-Gunstock loop.
I have descended the green trail when it is wet and it is definitely not recommended.
Always a busy place on the weekend, and gets a lot of use by the locals during the week too.
Nice family hike counting towards our Belknap Mountain and Fire tower lists. I hiked this one with my 7 year old daughter, husband, and sister. We got to go in the firetower cab, and meet the fire warden which was especially memorable for my daughter.
Too many climbs to remember them all
Views were about 50 miles.
