About This Trail

Distance- less than 2 miles
Elevation- 300 Ft

The Parker trail offers a short and sweet hike out the the Little Mountain Viewpoint, and is a great alternative if you are looking for an east hike with a big reward. The hike starts off following Old Toll Road, which is actually someones driveway so its very easy to follow. But don’t let it fool you, its still an uphill hike! .6 miles up the trail, the Parker Trail spurs off to the right. From here you can see the destination and is a short hike through the woods. Keep an eye out for a wooden sign that says “Parker Trail” nailed to the tree as soon as the trail levels out again. This is where the unmarked (but easily followed) trail is found to the right.

Lyndsey started hiking when her daughter Aubrey (5)  was just a few months old. Lyndsey and Aubrey have been hiking together for almost 5 years now and have made some impressive climbs over those years. Lyndsey has been an ambassador for Hike it Baby since January 2015. They live in the Monadnock Region of NH and they have many small mountains to hike all around them and they venture the two hours north to the White Mountain National Forest as often as they can. Lyndsey and Aubrey started their NH 48 4,000 footer list when Aubrey was just 3.5 years old. To date, they have completed 2/48. They have been working on the NH 52 with a View list as well and have completed 7/52. 

Hiking had such a huge influence on getting over PPD that she wanted to help other local parents get out on the trails and build a community that is different from the other typical mom groups. Over the years she has learned so much about hiking with young children, from picking different carriers to choosing trails for toddlers. She wants to share her knowledge to help others, as this information was impossible to find when she was just starting out hiking with Aubrey!

Lyndsey also writes for her own personal blog www.summitmommy.com that chronicles her and Aubrey’s hiking adventures together as well as offers articles and trail suggestions for families hiking in New Hampshire!
