The Best Day Hikes in America: Baldface Traverse

White Mountain National Forest, New Hampshire

The high price of climbing 3,606-foot North Baldface—some 3,000 feet of elevation gain in roughly 3 miles—offers even higher rewards: a 4-mile ridgewalk across bare peaks. But unlike the Presi, this is one traverse you won’t have to share.
