New Hampshire is a treasure trove of natural beauty and nowhere is this more apparent than in the stunning landscape of the White Mountains. This mountain range, part of the northern Appalachian Mountains, extends about 140 miles into western Maine, covering about a quarter of the state of New Hampshire.
The White Mountains are an outdoor enthusiast's dream come true. The region offers an array of activities such as hiking, skiing, snowboarding, and camping. The area is home to the White Mountain National Forest, which encompasses a staggering 800,000 acres of land filled with wildlife and lush vegetation.
Hiking is arguably the best way to explore the White Mountains. With over 1,200 miles of non motorized trails, hikers can venture through dense forests, climb rugged peaks, or stroll along tranquil streams. The Appalachian Trail, a famous long distance hiking path, covers approximately 160 miles through the heart of the White Mountains.
Skiing & Snowboarding
When winter arrives, the White Mountains transform into a snowy paradise ideal for skiing and snowboarding. The region boasts several ski resorts, including the renowned Bretton Woods and Cannon Mountain, offering a variety of terrains suitable for both beginners and seasoned professionals.
Camping Under the Stars
If you prefer a slower pace, camping in the White Mountains provides a fantastic opportunity to disconnect and immerse yourself in nature. Whether you prefer a rustic backcountry experience or a campground with amenities, the White Mountains have plenty to offer for every type of camper.
