The White Mountain National Forest is filled with a myriad of sites from the Rusty Gorge of rushing water surrounded by wonderful folliage in the fall, to Echo Lake which mirrors the foliage on its placid calm surface and nice beach in the summer. There are waterfalls viewable from the road and others worth the 1 and 1/2 mi trail.... More

a great place to hike, whether it be a day hike, or a multi-day trek. You can either stay at one of the eight staffed-huts, (where you will be provided with dinner, breakfast and a comfortable place to sleep)... all within a one-day's hike from each other. Or you can camp out on your own. Absolutely beautiful. But if you... More

You can drive up Hwy 93 to Lincoln and right turn to Kancamagus Hwy., which is Hwy 112. There are several trails along the way that you can stop and take pictures. Since I just came back from Colorado trip, I was not easily impressed. But been a long time New Hampshire resident, this is what we have and the... More

Recommend Dolly Copp Campground, a national forest campground. Rustic with flush toilets and supreme location with views and access to the river. So many hikes, it's difficult to choose. Stop by the Androscoggin Valley Ranger Station on Route 16. The staff there is a wealth of helpful info to help direct your activities. They gave us great tips for local... More

There are so many out door activities and trails to explore. Rivers and waterfalls were raging during my visit - so beautiful. The only difficult part of the trip - aside from all of the up-hill hiking - was deciding on what trails to explore.

Take two ! I have a fascination with one of my favourite marsupials , the Mighty Moose !! Have been lucky enough to meet in the wilds in Yellowstone NP but will love to meet again. Hence our trip through White Mt NF . We hoped to greet (at a reasonable speed) our valued friend. What we actually got was... More

We went to the white mountain national forest for 2 days in the first week of October 2012. It was amazing and beautiful. The first day we got there it had been raining so it was a bit overcast. We just wound up doing driving and a few hikes to some waterfalls. A hike we did and found 2 beautiful... More

We ventured to the White Mountains for a sister/cousin reunion. The Covered Bridge Campground, being a favorite on our list, we knew we could expect fresh mountain air, rambling rivers, and soaking up the sun on the sculpted rocks. However, we did not expect such warmth and genuine kindness from our camp host Mike, and his faithful companion Nanook. Upon... More

My boyfriend and I decided to spend 5 days and 4 nights camping in the White Mountains, to get away from the city, our cell phones, and the sheer density of people in Boston. We wanted to relax and enjoy the silence, the stars, and the natural beauty of the mountains. We drove through Covered Bridge Campground, which was rustic... More
