What a way to connect with nature, it was beautiful and adventurous! We climbed to the biggest waterfall and we loved every minute of our walk. Dress in sneakers and comfortable clothing, you might get a little wet and some paths may be a little slippery for sandals.

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
