White Mountains, NH
Sandwich Traverse

Look down from 10 mountaintops, see nothing but open sky bitten by green-sloped mountains, and hear nothing but wind on this 30-mile point-to-point. First, climb East Osceola and Mt. Osceola, then wind south on the Scaur Trail over Tripyramid’s North, Middle, and South Peaks. Join the Sleeper Trail over West and East Sleepers to the full panorama atop 4,020-foot Mt. Whiteface. “Spend a night at the well-used site near the summit on Blueberry Ledge Trail,” says Lindsey Hansen. “I woke up to a view of mountains peeking above a layer of clouds. Pure magic!” Connect the Blueberry Ledge, Tom Wiggins, and Dicey’s Mill Trails to Mt. Passaconaway before exiting via the Oliverian Brook Trail.

Trailhead 44.031642, -71.516876; 10 miles east of Lincoln on NH 112 INFO Buy a parking pass ($5) at Lincoln Woods visitor center; (603) 630-5190; Website
