The start of the trail is flat and easy, winding through moderately wooded areas. Can be VERY wet in 3 warmer seasons and will cross and follow a small creek off and on for about half the hike. There are some valleys along the hike that can get very muddy, so bring poles so you can easily jump the rocks through the muddy parts.
As you near the top, you'll see some fairly steep parts - one we call the Stairway to Heaven (but it kind of feels a bit hotter then heaven for a minute if you know what I mean.). Don't worry, these steep parts are short.
Watch for the blaze very carefully. It's easy to get off trail and tough to find your way back. Dogs are great for this reason. They never lose scent of trail as its well hiked in 3 seasons.
You will find bathroom facilities at the trailhead and the top. The top is quite a scene, 360 views of everything from Boston to the Greens in Vermont. This trail meets the auto road, and at least 3 other trails. Water is available at the top from about May to October.
Drive NH RTE. 101 to the top of Temple Mountain. Watch for sign "Miller State Park". Turn into a slight and short incline that gets you into the parking lot. There is a three dollar donation per parked car. As you look up the mountain, the trail head will be on your right.
