This classic guide that introduced generations of hikers to the beauty of New Hampshire's White Mountains inspires once again with this sixth edition.
The White Mountains of New Hampshire are the crown jewels of Northeast hiking. From Franconia Notch's abrupt and plush trails up Mounts Flume, Liberty, and Lafayette; to the gentler grades and shorter treks of Hedgehog and Stinson Mountains, and East and Greeley Ponds; to the legendary peaks of the Presidential Range, hikers of all ages and experience can find endless opportunities to put their feet on a path. Rediscover (or discover for the first time) the riches of the White Mountains with this new sixth edition that includes hikes in Franconia Notch, Crawford Notch, and Pinkham Notch regions, as well as hikes of varying difficulty off the picturesque Kancamagus Highway and beyond. The 50 hikes here range in length from 1 to 33 miles, from easy walks to strenuous multiday backpacks.
