views

Foss Mountain features a long, open ridge, which is home to a low bush blueberry farm. The north peak features views in all directions. Foss Mountain has two summits, the northern summit which is where the views are and northern (higher summit) which is wooded and further along the summit ridge. There are blueberries (in season) so please check the trailhead kiosk to see where it is okay to pick them.

Best part is the 360 degree view at the top. Would be a great picnic spot with large, flat rocks to sit on and blueberries to pick (in season).

Foss Mountain is unique in several respects. It is one of the easiest climbs in the area affording panoramic views of Mt. Washington, Kearsarge Mountain, Mt. Chocorua, Conway Lake and more. And in early August...the BLUEBERRIES!

A great hike! Incredible panorama views at the top, all the way to Mt. Washington, so go on a clear day. Blueberry bushes abound at the summit for a snack.

Great short hike with awesome views from the top. But suggest you have 4-wheel or all-wheel drive to reach the trailhead.

We attempted this hike approaching from the south, and sadly we could not get there. This road is not well maintained and you will need 4 wheel drive with good ground clearance.

phenomenal views at the top! easy hike for all skill levels. if you go while they are in season, you can pick the organic blueberries along the trail and at the top!

Short and easy with a good view from the top. Perfect for kids, especially if it's blueberry season.
