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.

This is a great place to see views of the surrounding area from the top of a small mountain that you can hike or drive up to the top. We drove to the top and then hiked around the mountain to get views from each...More
