Great selection of flavors and really hearty scoops. All sorts of hunger killing sundaes as a treat for the end of a tough day on the trail, or just a satisfying treat after a day touring this quaint town.

Stopped for ice cream sundaes on a hot afternoon, greeted by a lady with a lovely smile and sunny demeanor. The sundaes were HUGE, the price reasonable considering the size, and the view of the mountains as we ate our sundaes was breathtaking!

Over the course of a week we visited pretty much every ice cream location in North Conway. Trails End was by far the best in terms of value, you get a ton of ice cream for a very reasonable price. Flavor selection is good, if you get the flavors with the red dot next to the name, they are locally... More

Good ice cream and a great staff. They happily gave my 3 year old grandson extra cherries!. Beautiful views of the mountains as you sit and enjoy your ice cream!

The ice cream is great. No question go! Warning order one size smaller than at your normal ice cream shop. ;)

Stopped here one night after dinner, mediums are huge! Great ice cream and a great value! We pay way more back home for similar sizes.

Best ice cream ever! The service was great and the Salted Caramel ice cream is the best! My kids loved the Cookie Dough and Oreo!

We were so sad when the Bartlett Trail's End closed, but we're happy that the North Conway location is still open! We do miss the playground and the atmosphere from the Bartlett one, but if you're in the mood for ice cream, Trail's End is still the place to be. Excellent quality ice cream, huge serving sizes, and great prices.... More

Delicious ice cream a few miles south of White Mountain National Forest. After a day of hiking in Crawford Notch, this was a great place to stop and refresh ourselves. Ice cream was great. We had 5 flavors between us and the staff was super friendly. We passed a DQ on the way. This was worth the wait!

Their ice cream is good, but to be honest, I never really had a bad ice cream ever. Across the street is a scenic stop so people come here a lot. The line is long but the servers are fast. The only downside is they don't have any shaded spot where they have their seats. Oh, I love their almond... More
