Great short hike with beautiful views of NH and the city of Boston. We took Balance Rock trail to Indian to hit the summit. Trail is well groomed and allows dogs.

Rode the bike up to the top and walked all around the trails. Nice views. Sometimes it is foggy at the summit but it clears. This was the case on this visit. Great views from the summit.

You can drive to the top of the mountain, with a places to stop on the way, with really pretty views. There are also a number of hiking trails - for the next trip! There is a $5 parking fee.
