Bridging New Hampshire and Maine, the White Mountain National Forest covers over 800,000 acres of diverse terrain. Home to Mount Washington and six designated wilderness areas, the protected lands encompass snow-capped peaks, cascading waterfalls, and rocky ridges through which hikers enjoy well-marked trails. The majority of the forest has been preserved as true back country, while a smaller portion of the forest allows for more development, which permits the operation of several downhill ski areas that become become a broad network of trails in summer. Activities permitted throughout the park include mountain biking, fishing, swimming, and canoeing in the warmer months. Grab your fishing pole and book a solar-powered cabin to make the most of your summer visit to White Mountain National Forest.
