Ascent Trip Report

This was the first hike with my girlfriend, it was a good one i did get confused because of all the parking lots. And i did not know until now that there is a east and west rattlesnake mountain near squam lake.... (the one we were looking for) next time i guess... this hike was somewhat hard to begin with for about a half mile there was a pretty good incline but after that it did level off, overall there were great views i highly recommend the loop trail it was a good hike anyone can do it and the views so worth the hike.
