This hike has spectacular views despite being relatively short and smooth. We did the loop counterclockwise, and I recommend that. The parking lot is very small, and there’s a sign warning not to park along the nearby road. Note that there are seven different Rattlesnake Mountains in New Hampshire. This one is near the famous rock climbing area
Near the end of the trail, you can see the tower at VINS and the dam above Quechee Gorge.
