Finally did this!
I’ve had this mountain on my bucket list since my early childhood but never got around to hiking it.
So many good things about this mountain.
The views from the summit are excellent; plenty of parking in the lot; and bathrooms at the trail head!!
We hiked the Champney Brook trail - very nice.
If you haven't hiked up Mount Chocorua I highly recommend it.
Here's a short video I did of the hike:
Let me know what you think!
Camped overnight on snow. Cold. Done with high school class.
Climbed to the summit with Mike, Ben, Ken, and two Boy Scouts under clear but windy and cold conditions via the Liberty Trail. Stayed overnight at the Jim Liberty Cabin before descending the icy Brook Trail. Beautiful, easy climb.
Cloudy day, but a fun time on the Piper and Weedamoo Trail.
Two hours and eighteen minutes up and two hours down. I didn't need microspikes until the final mile of the 4.5 miles but for that one mile, they were extremely useful. The final climb up the summit cone was pretty steep.
I did this via Champney Falls. Great summit finale!
Just shy of the summit! The wind took my hat and gloves right from my bag. A few moments of fear..
Some time in the 80s with my college hiking buddy Peter...
Had to stop just short of the summit due to wind. Beautiful day, great views. Awesome little mountain.
good easy group hike for all levels.
Great little mountain but get an early start so you are not fighting the crowds and can have the summit to you self.
First overnight of the season. The JLC was great... can't wait to get back when there's snow.
Great little mountain. I'll be back in winter.
Champney Falls Trail to Piper. Early start so had the summit almost to ourselves and then passed the conga line of hikers on the way down. :) Gorgeous views for a relatively easy hike. We must go back in winter now!
great, besides the bees
Stopped below the summit cone because a member of our party had to turn back, but a wonderful snowshoe to the ridge, and a lovely scramble up to the last few hundred feet. Can't wait to hit it again.
Done with my grandparents and cousins.
I took the Champney Falls trail from the Kanc with my dad, sisters, and cousin. It was a beautiful day and we could see for miles. I loved the rocky top.
I've climbed this from both sides. Probably one of the better views in the White Mountains despite not being a 4000 footer.
Sunbathed on the summit for 3 hours before reluctantly heading to the bus with the camp group and ending our trip
