Mt. Morgan and Mt. Percival, Squam Range, Burleigh Land LP Conservation Easement

Open to the Public

Mt. Morgan (elevation 2,220 feet) and Mt. Percival (elevation 2,212 feet) are among the most popular hiking destinations in the Lakes Region. These mountains offer spectacular views of natural landmarks in all directions, including Squam Lake, Red Hill, the Ossipees, the Sandwich Range, and the White Mountains.

Substantial portions of the Mt. Morgan and Mt. Percival Trails, as well as their trailheads, are within the 2,471-acre Burleigh Land LP property, which is protected by a conservation easement acquired by LRCT in 2007. Please appreciate the generosity of the landowners who have allowed hiking access for many years.

Trail Information

The distance from the Mt. Morgan trailhead to the summit is 2.1 miles; the distance from the Mt. Percival trailhead to the summit is 1.9 miles.  A 4.8-mile loop can be hiked from one trailhead, up over both mountains via the Crawford-Ridgepole Trail, and back down to the other trailhead.


Parking is available at the trailheads located 0.3 miles apart on Route 113 in Holderness, a short distance west of the Holderness-Sandwich town line.

Winter Access: the Mount Morgan and Cotton Mountain parking areas (along Route 113) and Brooks Fisher parking area (on Perch Pond Road) are plowed.
