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.

Had so much fun! Light snow throughout the hike made for fun views. One spot on whiteface had to hand the pups up one at a time and one spot on passaconaway had to coach them up - just added to the adventure! Lots of postholds of the monorail,only needed microspikes

Stunning views.
Moderate difficulty.
Beautiful all year, but if you can do peak foliage season... it'll knock your socks off.

Forgot to bring my snow cleats with me on trip so couldn't get past the 3500 ft range as it got too slippery to get footing :/ but the views are amazing and highly recommend

we tried to do Red Ridge trail but with the amount of melted snow we couldn't cross the river. So we continued up on Attitash trail to junction of North Moat. turned around at this point. the trail isn't steep very flat but enjoyable. Microspikes are a must. there were some frozen post holes beware fell in one when not concentrating. would do this trail in summer /fall/ even winter but definitely not in Spring. all the small streams would stop your progression.

My girlfriend and I did this hike last year on October and I have to say it was amazing. We are not experts in hiking but we were able to get to the summit. It took us 7 hours to complete it.

It was cloudy but still able to see nice views, very cold and windy. We are already planning on going back and cross to Mt Lafayette also.

Check out my blog, I wrote a little about it. https://garciaanderson.wordpress.com/2016/10/24/hiking-on-the-white-mountains/


Great hike. Very challenging. The way down is steep and slick. Beautiful views. I strongly sudgest the break out trail to shining rock. Only a 10 minute detour and worth every second!

I rate this trail as moderate. Hardest part getting up the slabs but other than that easy trail with beautiful views.

Great views. Quiet setting. 360 panorama view with Mts. Moosilauke, Carr and Stinson on the horizon.
