White Mountain National Forest lies within the White Mountains in the U.S. states of New Hampshire and Maine. It's crossed by the White Mountain Trail and Kancamagus scenic drives, plus part of the Appalachian Trail. Dating to the 1860s, the Mt. Washington Cog Railway climbs to the summit of Mt. Washington, the highest peak in the northeastern U.S. The area is also known for bright fall foliage and winter skiing.

This is the epitome of a New England hike! A decent amount of climbing up rock faces towards the top and spectacular views. Was more challenging than I expected which made it all the more rewarding in the end. definitely do again.

I cannot put into words how amazing this hike is. This loop will require every ounce of endurance (physical and mental) that you've got, but you will be rewarded with stunning natural beauty either side of tree line, and once you've finished, you will have a major accomplishment to look back on. Pain never felt as good as it did after the trek. I agree with the majority of people in that going up Falling Waters and down Old Bridle Path is likely the way to go. There are some precarious sections and stream crossings along Falling Waters that I cannot imagine doing after a Lafayette ascent and ridge crossing that would surely make rubber out of my legs.

Amazing views and lots of delicious wild blueberries along the trail!

The beaver brook trail is about 4 mi to the summit with the first 2 miles being extremely steep, slippery, and rocky (a sign warns you of this at the beginning) while the second half is considerably more moderate. You will be rewarded by the views at summit, they are absolutely incredible. One of my favorite summits!

Great hike, beautiful views from the top.

This mountain has amazing views. It was considerably hard.

This is a serious hike. If you want to make the full loop you must start early and take minimal breaks. All and all, a wonderful full day hike that requires focus and consistency.
