  • Very cool..I grew up in Gilford and have hiked everything many times..a plane crashed on back side of Belknap many yrs ago.its still there. The trail up the back side off of Cherry Valley Rd..gets you to the plane..oh…don’t forget Abenaki Tower in Wolfboro..very cool you are doing this..

  • I would suggest hiking the Pemi loop in 1 day, but I don’t want you to get hurt. Hence, I challenge you to hike it in 2 days carrying a minimal pack.

  • Taylor, these videos are so helpful and fun. Can you poke around at the restored New Hampshire ski jump area sometime and show us? We don’t get to see that kinda stuff often if we live elsewhere. But you don’t have to go there if you don’t want to. Thanks for your channel! ��

  • Oh i really want to go see an aircraft carrier, that is so cool. And i loved the rock climbing walls, how fun. I’ll have to try one out next time we find one.

  • What a great day hiking! You’re 2/5 of the way to a NH Fire Tower patch. I’ve heard the Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway Trail is fantastic if you’re looking for a few day hike.

  • These are some that I would love to see
    School stereotypes
    Road trip stereotypes
    Swimming stereotypes
    Sport stereotypes
    Halloween stereotypes
    Like so they can see

  • I was curious to know if you were from the same area as me. Hearing your pronunciation of Monadnock answered that LOL. Cool idea for a video. Looks like it was a super fun day.

  • I have also seen gummie bears and fish on trails lately….I don’t like it either. Thanks for giving me more ideas of where to go! I’ve done Bald Knob and Belknap too:)

  • WOW that was a whirlwind hiking adventure! Thanks so much for sharing that! I feel the same way about places that are “touristy” I feel weird there. That was quite a fun adventure though, you rock! If I had to pick one state from my AT hike to live there it would be NH. I loved the balds in Virginia, but NH was so much more majestic. If I lived there I know the places I would be hiking on a regular basis, and then exploring more from there!

  • Picked up some good stops when my family is driving to and from Maine to visit family. We drive through Moltonborough frequently and that Bald Knob looks great for a break along the way. I think my kids would love the Five Fingers one too on Squam. Thanks for sharing about those.

  • I was in your neck of the woods, staying on Welch Island last week. The stone chairs on Lockes Hill are pretty neat. I talked the kids into getting off the water to go up Mt Major this year (nineteen years coming up and finally able to enjoy the views) I’ll try some of the other hikes you suggested next time. Thank you for all the work you put in to generate this content!

  • I see the Belknap map in the “Southern NH Trail Guide” (AMC). Where did you find the others? In the main AMC guide? Or can you suggest books/maps I could get for that region. And where could I buy the maps? Or do you just use something like “All Trails” app? I like having both. Thanks

  • I didn’t see that much water on the waterfalls when I was there early this month, I think I will have to come back! luckily its only a 3,5 hours drive from San Fran:)

  • Always liked visiting the Lakes region of NH. It’s been many years since my last visit. Your local area trails look somewhat easier than the trails in my home area of PA. I know the Whites are far more challenging but it’s good to know about the easier stuff you’re highlighting lately. I’m looking forward to returning to NH in 2021. Thanks for the vids AND

  • Another fantastic video! Two of them look very interesting to me. I might just take a trip to Conway in the near future. Thank you!!

  • I liked the trail that you gave a 4.. and the falls were great:) The overlook of the lakes will be a must with a real camera this autumn, when the haze is low and the colors are high! Nice that you made this vid! Thanks and on my list.

  • Just stumbled on your channel thanks for the upload and I will definitely have to do this loop just for the experience these would be perfect for my dog who is a bit older these days!

  • Hi Taylor any chance you will hike the Presidentials this summer or fall? If so I would be interested in joining you. I’m guessing you know the terrain and want to hike with someone knowagable. I want to test myself at climbing 4,000+ before I commit to an AT thruhike. Let me know thanks.
    ..

  • You live in a very beautiful area. I’ve never been to NH but looks like I place I need to explore some day. Thanks for the 8 trail tour!!!

  • Love this video! Lots of short hikes to do at a moments notice. Thanks for the time it took to do these videos and hikes. It’s a lot of work and time on your part.

  • Love the video! Rattlesnake is one of my favorite quick hikes because of the view at the top. I’ll definitely be checking out some of the others you’ve shown here both my dog and I are getting pretty sick of the same trails in my hometown!

  • Great video, Taylor! So informative and perfect for those of us looking for a short hike with spectacular views. Would love to see a part 2! You have so much energy and a wonderful spirit… the world needs more of that! ��

  • Thanks for making these videos, and for sharing your tips and views of the hikes! I’m hiking Black Cap (from your “8 hikes” video) this week, and am adding a couple of these to my list for the next outing!

  • They may have been short hikes, but you add them up and they amount to a pretty good workout! Seeing these places makes me want to move up there. Even when I’m an old(er) guy I may still have a shot at seeing some pretty nice mountaintops. Nahamsha is really pretty beautiful.

  • I watched you on the AT, good video with some great views, nice water falls, good views of the mountains ⛰, so let’s keep on hiking

  • Ever meet someone that has the ability to bring everyone up around them? This is her, what a breath of fresh air. I just found your channel a couple of days ago and have been playing catch-up. You have such an infectious smile and upbeat attitude. Love the content.

  • There Tuckaway over and Raymond to there’s some good day Trails there to hike and on the Castle in the Sky one isn’t there like a 4-mile trail down a river route to see some waterfalls? I can’t remember.

  • Thanks for the tips going there this Wednesday for a full week. I hope to see all of the hikes and meet other youtubers along the way.

  • listened twice and took good notes anxious to get out and try them thanks never been to the lakes region as I’m more your alpine mountain tundra type, but with age… this will hit the spot and I can camp too thanks soooo much didn’t realize it has it’s own beauty.

  • Beautiful scenery, I love going to trip and see beautiful places too and I hope one day I can visit this place. Am new here so pls sty koniktid my friend

  • Awesome video Taylor! I’m from Peterborough, and started a hiking/camping channel myself! Excited to check out your AT videos, and whatever else you have coming up! Thanks for sharing ��

  • Piece of history……did you know that lake sunapee is the town where Steven Tyler grew up…I’m 65 and aerosmith played at my junior dance in high school… just before they took off to boston…aerosmith was voted by billboard as the best band of the 20th century! And great video..I live in vermont and we all have our hiking marvels…great video and ty. If ya want some drone fly overs of Groton hiking heaven!

  • I know they weren’t ripe yet but no mention of the blueberries on Pitcher? Classic huge wild bushes. Love the videos but yes, please work on the pronunciations.

  • Next March i plan on starting the AT….. when do u plan on jumping on next year and where to u plan on starting. I wasn’t sure where u left off. Or are you going to start in Georgia again

  • Ha I have watched this a milanoin times and i was in destin Florida a few days ago I stayed at destin west beach and bay resort and there there to

  • Great video but man I worry about these girls that hike by themselves on wood trails. Everyone should hike with a partner, man or woman, but I have seen a ton of videos lately of young women camping/hiking completely alone in the middle of nowhere and it scares the crap out of me.

    Please be careful and extra observant and carry a personal protection beacon if possible.

  • Taylor. Thank you for setting the example of having your dog on a leash. The wildlife sure appreciates your example. I am really enjoying this one. As a fisheries technician for the Fish and Game Department in the mid 1970’s I netted fish on Squam Lake for studies. And the Castle. I was invited to hunt there each fall in the 1980’s by one of the caretakers. There were few trails then. No Gummy Bears to be found. Just a vast wilderness tract with not another person other than those I hunted with.

  • The second you spoke I fell right into your eyes and did not hear a thing….. stay out of the tourist traps it’s a regular masshole!!!!!

  • This video popped up on my feed because I texted my friend saying we need to do a quick NH hike soon and my phone just “gets” me lol.. We’re actually looking into doing a more challenging one.. Maybe the Black angel trail over by Wildcat Mountain.. That is my favorite spot in the Whites.. Super secluded and beautiful.. I’m thinking its gonna be a tough one.

  • Nice video… an interesting fall activity for hikers is doing a Hawk watch as they migrate south… If you hit the right day with a pair of binoculars you can see hundreds… A famous route south is over Pack Manadnock and then over Mt Wachusetts in MA. You already know Pack Manadnock so grab your camera, some binoculars and a tripod and enjoy the festivities.. if you enjoyed the movie The Big Year, all the birders are there…

  • Thank you for keeping us entertained. We have been hiking the trails you have pointed out. So glad to explore around our home. Beautiful area beautiful land ❤️☺️❤️

  • Just had your channel pop up on ours in the suggestions. Love the name btw. We live in Lincoln,NH and definately understand the tourist thing but it’s fun to still have those secret spots/trails and constantly find more. Nice video! As a fellow youtuber I really appreciate the effort you put into your edits.

  • I think that informing people on the trails is a great idea. The idea to do these all in ONE day is exactly the kind of behavior that FIsh & Game wardens, and hiker safety programs would warn against promoting. I think this is a bit irresponsible Taylor.

  • Awesome hikes been to all those places. At the top of Vernal falls there is a pool of water it looks like a giant bowl being filled by Nevada falls is the waterslide still there? It was the water that comes from Nevada falls cutting through the rock that feeds Vernal falls? It was so awesome!

  • YAY…reinforced dog on a leash…so glad Callie didn’t climb the stairs and yes, noticed her panting just as you called her dog grandparents…you love and respect her…great dog mom! ��. Pet peeve, humans dragging dogs in heat to beaches where they aren’t having fun..selfish of owners.

  • “On a Saturday morning…”??? Hike any one of the ten mentioned on a Saturday and you wont be greeted only by mountain views, intimate creeks and lush forests, you’ll have the population of the entire state as a welcoming party.

  • Thank you Taylor. I would definitely like to try the Rattlesnake hike in Stoddard. I think my hubby would appreciate this hike as he has Achilles tendinitis in his left foot. This would also give us a nice car ride from Brookline, NH. I’ve recently started hiking again with a local group as I’ve been reluctant to go out on the local trails due too many cars in the parking lot. Again, thank you for the ideas.��

  • your daring, hiking in thick brush in shorts…( thinkin about Tics)
    what kind of watch is that. my daughter would love that thing!!!

  • Hiked Pack Monadnock multiple times as a kid. My father owned a farm in Temple which you can see from the top looking East. There is a bird of prey study center on top also

  • I live in Conway and the windy portion of Hurricane mountain road is indeed gated in the Winter. Blsck Cap definitely deserves its spot on the list, but I was a bit surprised to see Diana’s bath and Echo lake there. No one here really considers the former a trail. It’s just a path to a waterhole, unless you’re on it to go to North Moat. Since you mentioned being on Kearsarge North recently, are you hiking the 52WAV?

  • Great video and wonderful concept. Your 8 hikes in 1 day video gave me the idea to record smaller, lesser known trails around Colorado. Good luck on your quest for 10k subscribers. Maybe Dan Becker will do a cameo in your celebration video, too.

  • Thanks for the tour! Brought back some memories of the short trails with views and waterfalls. Stay clear of the red and whites! lol

  • If the AT is open in the spring I hope that I get the chance to meet you and say hi…depending on when we start its possible but not probable. For you it will be a first thruhike of the AT and maybe the only one but, for me, it will be my third but great luck to you and hope to bump into you somewhere along the path…Lets all hope that the AT is open and all those wonderful Trail angels and their magic will be out….Cheers and luck to all who take a stab at hiking the toughest and roughest 2000+ mile Trail there is!!!!

  • Nice hikes full of wonder! Great views and cool stuff to look at along the way. Happy to have stumbled across your channel. This is the way to enjoy free time right here! (Hiking, that is ) Thanks belchertown MA

  • i hate this too… my last hike was like this too…. lots of talking, screaming, kids running etc… I prefer to enjoy to sound of nature.

  • Of those trails, I’ve done 1, 3, and 4. I would have done both Monadnock, but the bigger doesn’t allow dogs. ��

    Have you done the Bonds? I had planned to stay overnight at the Guyot site, but ended up being called home for a minor emergency. So it turned out to be an 18 mile out and back!

  • I am from New Hampshire and always get a little angry at Mass people and there driving skills. Maybe close the boarder because of covid-19?

  • loved your hike I love the view from the fire tower, I know it’s tough to hike with a dog I had the same problem today my girl was doing Dominick the donkey she just wouldn’t move until I bribed her with a 3-pound dog treat was back on the trail, thank God for snacks”have the best day..

  • Thanks for the Flume footage. I was there in 2018 with my husband and grandson. Nice to see it again. I’m in Michigan, so might not make it back your way.

  • Just makes me miss Florida I want there to Destin with a bunch of friends and we had a pool in our backyard and we were down the road to where we could walk to the beach

  • Fun video! You asked about potential challenges… How about the Presidential Traverse? Lots of daylight these next few weeks. I am sure you would make a great video if you did it.

  • Great to see you and thank you for taking the time to make this video! It’s great to see smaller trails that are often forgotten or not shown. It’s a pleasant change from the big through hikes that we see over and over. This is absolutely some of the best views I’ve seen. THANK YOU!����
