LOVE the White Mountains, especially Sugar Hill.
Oct 2021
You could spend weeks in the White Mountains and never get tired of it. There's so much spectacular scenery and so many quintessential New England towns and villages where there are great inns, eateries, shops, activities, and lots of little wooden white churches. The hiking and skiing is some of the best in the country. I spent a weekend in one of my favorite regions, Franconia and Sugar Hill (famous Polly's Pancake Parlor territory).

Beautiful All Year Round

The White Mountains of New Hampshire are beautiful and perfect for all year round. Summer full of greenery, swimming, touring, and hiking. Fall for the folliage and hiking. Winter for skiing and touring. Spring to watch it all come alive again. Much to do!

Northern New England’s Perfect Four-Season Destination
Aug 2019
If you crave the rugged outdoors, this is the place to be! Part of the far more extensive Appalachian Mountains, when I visited, in mid-summer, many parts of the White Mountains were immensely popular and heavily visited, intensively used, and yet still somehow sublime. They covered about 1.2 million acres (485,623 ha) in central NH and western ME, two thirds of them as public lands. Their highest point, Mt Washington, at 6,288 feet (1,917 m), was visible from Bretton Woods, Conway, and other vantage points; its summit was free of snow – unlike from mid-October into late May. A paved toll road climbed 7.6 miles (12.2 km) to its summit; I didn’t dare try it. The mountains had 49 summits over 4,000 feet (1,219.2 m) high, most of which were reachable by marked hiking trails, one by a cog railway, and several by trams. Several scenic byways traversed the mountains – the 26.5-mile (42.6 km) Kancamagus Highway (NH 112), the 8-mile (12.8 km) Franconia Notch Parkway (I-93), and the 100-mile (160 km) White Mountain Trail (US 3 and US 302). Although the White Mountains were scenic in mid-summer, they were perhaps better viewed during the fall’s colorful foliage and winter’s snow-cover. My favorite stops for getting out into Nature were at Crawford Notch State Park and Franconia Notch State Park. I enjoyed everything I saw during my one-day road trip through the White Mountains.

Mt Washington Acent
Mar 2019 • Friends
I did the two-day Mt Washington event with Jamie and Scott. Jamie was great as a guide and a planner considering the rapidly-changing weather forecasts in the area. We did some training the first day which got us in good shape for the summit. On summit day, Jamie was awesome with pace-setting and figuring out how we could summit in the most-optimal weather conditions. Scott helped out with some other issues and was awesome.

I hope to be in the area and do another event with these guys again soon.

I can't wait to go back!
I had a fantastic weekend with the NRMG! The mountaineering course prepared our group to feel confident ascending Mt. Washington. Jamie and Justin are very professional and it's clear that they are passionate about what they do. They helped me keep a steady pace when I struggled to keep up and encouraged everyone throughout the climb. Also, Justin took so many awesome shots of us which he shared with us after the trip. We were lucky to have such a good weather to see the beautiful view from the summit. The entire experience was unforgettable, and I look forward to joining them again next winter!

This is my second time climbing with these guys. Jamie and Justin love climbing and love sharing their experience, for sure! It was a beautiful day and we had a great group, the guides added lots of expertise and fun. They know what they're doing, have great attention to detail, and pay attention to everyone & help them along. Looking forward to next winter and another climb with them!

Couldn't ask for a better weekend!

Jamie and Justin were incredible guides who knew exactly what to expect of the route up Mt. Washington. They were fun, engaging, and knowledgeable.

I signed up for the 2-day course where on Saturday, we went over gear, technique, and safety concerns. This included fitting of mountaineering boots, layering strategy, self-arresting techniques, and proper installation of crampons. On Sunday, we ascended and descended Mt. Washington via the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail. We even got to glissade for a bit on the descent. Throughout the climb, Jamie and Justin went at a reasonable pace and kept excellent communication about tricky areas and rest breaks. They made sure that no one felt left behind.

I look forward to coming back next season and would love to have them as my guides again.

Started at Liberty and tried making my way to Galehead when I my back started to let go. I am a woman with a good fitness level and an experienced hiker, I was doing the trek alone on my birthday. I decided not to take chances and I made my way to the GreenHut to try to ask for help. The only adult who worked there was rude and directed me to some young girl who had no clue how to handle this kind of situation. The hut was almost full, with the exception of one bed, which was booked, so I had to wait til 11pm to get it or I slept on the floor or bench. The bunk was way on top, with half of it covered by a slanted ceiling (try getting up there with a bulging disk when you can barely walk). Of course, no one offered to switch or even help me up. The girl told me the next morning, the staff would help me bring my stuff down (I did offer a fat tip $$$$) when they would go bring the trash. They must of forgot me.... Finally a total stranger who had camped near by and was at the hut for breakfast, offered to carry my luggage and help me down. It took more than 5 hours to get down from about 5.5km, and we had to hitchhike to the carpark. I had to cancel the rest of my huts, with no refund of course. I do not understand how they can hire staff with no emergency training in a mountain range of this kind. Young and inexperienced, they are only good for cooking and stupid sing alongs. Their champerone is useless. Next time, I'll save my $$$ and camp.

We visited the White Mountains for a day whilst on a 3 week trip to the States. I wanted to visit a state or national park and this was our best chance so we stayed in North Woodstock and did the 100 mile drive around the White Mountains using the online guide from visitwhitemountains.com. This was extremely helpful because if gives you a detailed guide by mile so you can select what to stop for and what to pass by.

There are so many places to stop - whether you want to paddle in a stream, swim under a waterfall, or just take in the amazing views.

The only slight negative is that whilst you are out in the wild, it's actually a very managed area so it doesn't feel all that wild. A minor point though and I hope to work the White Mountains into another future trip. I love this place!
