Kilburn Crags is a 1.8 mile out and back trail located near Littleton, New Hampshire that features a great forest setting and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for hiking, walking, and nature trips and is best used from April until October.
Littleton's best-kept secret hiking trail - the Kilburn Crags Trail - is a secret no more, thanks to receiving New Hampshire Magazine's editor's pick of the best "locals-only hiking trail" for 2015's "Best of NH 2015" issue. And anyone who's ever had the pleasure of making the short, enjoyable 1.8-mile nature hike (round trip) can tell you why. The view at the top is spectacular and worth every step!
Known as "The Crags" to locals, this easy, scenic trail is located on the northeastern shoulder of Walker Mountain in Littleton, N.H. The trailhead and small parking area for it is on NH Route 18/135, also known as the St. Johnsbury Road. (And the parking area is truly small, only big enough to fit about four cars at a time, so plan to carpool if going in a group.)
The top elevation of The Crags is 1,300 feet. At the outlook you can see a picturesque view of Littleton, the gorgeous high peaks of the Presidential Range, parts of the pretty Ammonoosuc River Valley, and even area favorites like Lafayette and Cannon Mountain off to the right. Its' fantastic scenery looks beautiful in every season too, attracting hikers year-round. The landscape of both the woods leading up to it and the outlook at the top change dramatically throughout the spring, summer, fall, and winter months, making it seem like a completely different hike each season as well.
