We have spent many hours hiking and camping in the White Mountains. For first time visitors, stop at one of the Ranger/Information Centers to get maps and talk with the rangers about the forest. From Rte 93, there is one off exit 27 and another off Exit 32. From Rte 16 there is one on Rte 112, just a stone's... More

I managed to climb Mount Washington four times this year, each from a different side of the mountain. Beginning in the spring to go skiing in Tuckerman Ravine, with awesome sites and sounds of skiers and riders, then to climbing the steep cliffs in June along the Huntington Ravine trail, then going up and over Lion Head in July, and...

Wanted my husband to see the NH mountains and of course they didn't disappoint. Just stunning. We took a drive & hiked along the way. Leaves had started turning but before the onslaught of all the tourists/cars/busses. A Must See.

This was our first time. There are many trails with beautiful scenery on top. This is the perfect time for this hike. Fall foliage are in peak colors in some areas. It is only a two hour drive from Boston. There are a few good eateries in Laconia.

This National Forest has so many things to do and is known for that I don't have the time to list them all here! Of course fall is my favorite time to go there because of the amazing color!!! But winter can be just as stunning. Well worth the time spent exploring the place.

Leaves were peaking at the top of Loon Mountain. Beautiful scenery. Loved the Gondola ride. Loved the Kangamangus Highway. So many recreational things offered from hiking to riding the rails. We also did the hobo railroad leaves were not as colorful compared to being up top of gondola ride.
