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.
Pine Mountain has been described as the ‘best view for the least effort’ in the White Mountains. This quick gratification makes it perfect for instilling in children the beauty of hiking and earns it the designation as this week’s ‘kid friendly’ hike. From the trailhead on Pine Mountain Road, which stems off of Pinkham B (Dolly Copp) Road (off of Route 16 in Gorham), follow the Ledge Trail just six tenths of a mile to its impressive summit! Enjoy a picnic (carry in, carry out!) and take a nice walk back to the car after enjoying the views from this small but stunning mountain peak.
