Kilburn Crags Trail – A Local Secret

Kilburn Crags Trail – A Local Secret

Everyone knows that Littleton, NH is a fun spot for shopping, antiquing, and dining. But hiking – in Littleton?  Yes! There are a few really neat hiking/walking areas you should check out next time you are here.

The best kept hiking secret is the Kilburn Crags Trail,  starting just a few miles from the inn off Route 18.

Kilburn Crag is a rocky outcropping on the northeastern shoulder of modest Walker Mountain. It is known mainly to Littleton locals. Be assured this is not an epic adventure.  With easy footing and low mileage, it is a perfect hike if you are just getting your hiking legs, short on time but want a great view,  or if you simply want some quality time in the woods without straying far from the inn.  It’s 1.4 miles roundtrip, takes about an hour, and the top elevation is 1,300 feet.  At the top, you’ll capture views of Littleton, the Ammonoosuc River Valley, the Presidential Range,  as well as Lafayette and Cannon Mountains to the right. Next time you are here, head out to Kilburn Crags. Enjoy the wildlife and vista!
