The AMC huts are self selecting to people that can hike steep trails, so there is automatically a different set of people that you will get elsewhere, folks that want to be outdoors, and be somewhere different. Everybody we met there was nice, and enthusiastic about where they were. Food - great, staff - fun, scenery - spectacular.

Unbelievable place, the last 2 miles of journey was very exciting. The mist covered mountains gave us a winter feeling in July !

I hiked various trails over four days this summer (2014). Many are more treacherous than what "moderate" might indicate. Loose stones, steep ascents and boulders that collect rain water and turn to cauldrons after a downpour. All lovely and all worth going to, but watch your step! If rain is predicted, be sure you have enough time to return to... More

If you've got the opportunity, definitely visit the White Mountains. Coming from the UK we flew into Boston and drove up the I-93 to get here easily. We stayed in North Woodstock, which was great because the river has a small cascade there that you can tube down -no charge, just at your own risk so make sure the water... More

The site had a swimming pool with water slides, a general store and two bathroom facilities complete with hot showers. The... More

These are not the Alps, so don't expect significant height, but beauty, serenity, clear skies, lots of mountain overlooks and somewhat dense forest are abundant. Go up at night and check out the stars. Take in some of the special off-shoots along the drive. Take snacks and drinks with you. Although you are not many miles from town, the speed... More

Visit the White Mountains for beautiful panoramic views, especially during the fall foliage season. (Note that Fall Foliage comes at a slightly different time each year, so check the internet, call the tourism department or check with someone in the area before traveling.)

The drive in cool chilly weather was excellent.The audio CD guide provided for the tour is quite informative and exhaustive. It was a thrilling experience to climb to the summit in chilling and gushing winds in hazy visibility

Went to the White Mountains and expected they would be White. They were green. Not what I was expecting. Hiked the Appalacian Trail. Thought I'd see some bald eagles and at least one American flag blowin' in the breeze. Did not. Yet again, not what I was expecting. -Blanche White
