Your Hikes

» Mt. Willard Trail, Crawford Notch SP Looking for a little instant gratification? Summit 2,840-foot Mt. Willard on this 1.8-mile trek and score views down into Crawford Notch and an eyeful of the surrounding Whites. Miles from city center 89; Trip ID775343

» Presidential Traverse, White Mountain NF Hikers come from all over the country to dayhike these 20 miles—with 9,000 feet of elevation gain over nine named peaks—so it’s no surprise it’s a local fave. You’ll need a 5 a.m. start, but dawn breaking on Mt. Madison more than compensates for the early rise. Bonus: ice cream at the summit of 6,288-foot Mt. Washington in summertime. Miles from city center 90; Trip IDhikes/775344
