We recently hiked to the top of Mt Kearsarge, at the height of the leaf season. The views were spectacular, even on a slightly rainy and overcast day. The hike is great and it is a good place to reconnect to the real world.

Always love traveling to Rollins! First of all, you get to drive through Warner on the way up to the mountain. It's a pretty climb, esp. during foliage season. Secondly, even with a bum knee (still recovering from surgery) you can still make it up...More

The drive into Rollins park is beautiful. As you get higher, the views at the scenic vistas are fantastic. The parking lot provides the best view of all (outside of the hike up Mt. Kearsarge). There are toilets and there are plenty of picnic tables...More

We drove up the road, had a picnic near the parking area (with a gorgeous view) and then hiked up to the summit. The hike was easy, my kids had no problem getting up there.
