The Mt. Washington Valley Chamber of Commerce is providing our guests with a weekly list of our favorite hikes to explore the beautiful, natural wonders our area has. Hikes from Kid Friendly and Short and Sweet to Off The Beaten Path, Waterfalls and 4,000 Footers... something for everyone. If you are looking for new territory to explore, or just want to head to a less densely populated outdoor attraction give one of our suggested hikes a try.

There are few mountains in the National Forest that give you such an expansive 360 degree view from one end of the Forest to the other as Mount Carrigain. See Franconia Ridge to the West, the Sandwich Range to the South, the Presidential Range to the Northeast, North and South Twin to the North, the Carters and the Baldfaces to the East, and everything in between. A ten mile round trip brings you up and along Signal Ridge to the lookout tower atop Mount Carrigain. Access the trail from Sawyer River Road off of Route 302 south of Crawford Notch. View of Southern Presidential Range and Crawford Notch from Mount Carrigain.
