Our second hike of the year was up Mt Rattlesnake trail located in Rumney, NH. This particular Rattlesnake trail (there are a few with that name in the area) is a 3.1 mile loop with some pretty steep sections but so much to enjoy along the way. There’s a babbling stream at the start, beautiful forest scenery the whole way, rocks to climb (and rest) on, and then the payoff at the top. Enjoy a little photo dump!
The views from the summit are gorgeous. It overlooks much of the town of Rumney, along with many other peaks in the distance. It also has a great view of the windmills along one of the ridges which I just adore seeing. (A big fat YES to clean energy please!) We had a picnic lunch at the top where there are plenty of flat areas to sit and take in the view. The trail leads across the top of the peak (which my kiddo adored scrambling around on!) and then loops back down. Definitely one we’ll do more than once!
Two hikes done, and summer has barely started! Stay tuned for posts on many more outdoor adventures this summer!
