Treeline Icon

cool to know

New Hampshire features more miles above treeline than any other Trail state. 
This provides exposed ridges with amazing views when the sun is shining, as well as the worst weather in the world when storms hit. 

White Mountains Icon

need to know

Special regulations govern the White Mountains due to the fragile nature of the alpine tundra as well as the danger that exposed areas pose to hikers.
The mountains are very steep here, and you need to be in seriously good shape with strong knees before tackling them.
