Need to Know

The only water source on this trail is a small trickling stream at the beginning of the trail.

Description

Follow the yellow Squam Lakes diamonds. Parking is limited on Squam Lake Road. The trail climbs over steep rocky terrain with a few switchbacks. It reaches a sign just below the cliffs; left continues through a chimney, right takes a more moderate approach. These branches meet back above the rocky chimney and continue climbing over some open rocky tops. It takes a right turn and passes a view on the left. It passes Teedie Trail (on the right), and continues nearly 2 miles to the summit.

Use caution if you plan to ascend the firetower.

Starts with a steep climb to Eagle Cliff, the best views on the mountain. Head over to the main summit with more easy/moderate terrain.
