NH - Moultonborough - Mt. Roberts Outlook

  • Location: Castle in the Clouds Conservation Area, Moultonborough, NH
  • Owner: Lakes Region Conservation Trust
  • Highlights: A moderate walk partway up Mount Roberts to a fantastic ledge view of Lake Winnipesaukee, the Belknaps, Red Hill, Plymouth Mountain, and Mt. Moosilauke
  • Directions (from Boston): 122 miles, 2 hours 20 minutes
  • The Trail:  2.2 miles, round trip 
    1. The trail begins behind the horse stable, which is down a dirt road from the parking areas.
    2. Follow the dirt road up a small incline.
    3. Once over the incline, the trailhead will be across a grassy area.  A blaze is visible but the sign, announcing the start of the Mt. Roberts Trail, is not until you are at the trailhead. 
    4. Follow Mt. Roberts Trail as it enters the woods, then reemerges beside the horse pasture, before beginning the climb uphill
    5. The climb is fairly gradual before reaching a steep part.
    6. Just after the steep part, look for Spur Trail on the left.
    7. Follow Spur Trail 50 yards to the ledges.
    8. Return along the same path.
  • Trail maps are available for purchase at Castle in the Clouds.
