The Appalachian Trail in New Hampshire can be enjoyed by everyone, from the novice to the experienced hiker. Spring, summer and the foliage can be viewed in the glory from a variety of trails.

The Appalachian Trail enters New Hampshire from Vermont across the Ledyard Bridge in Hanover, NH, and runs 160 miles to Grafton Notch, on the Maine border.

For inexperienced hikers and families, the White Mountains National Forest at Franconia Notch State Park and Crawford Notch State Park offer easy access to day hiking, however the Pinkham Notch area near Gorham offers enjoyable hikes that are less rigorous than others in the area.

Most shelters and campsites charge a fee.

For a real White Mountain experience, nothing compares to a day on the Appalachian Trail. As the saying goes, you never climb the same mountain twice.

• Be prepared for steep ascents and descents that require the use of your hands and, occasionally, the seat of your pants.

• Be aware a five mile journey can mean a full day of steep climbs.

• Much of the Trail is above timberline, where the temperature may change very suddenly. The same severe weather conditions that prevent trees from growing on the high ridges also require a higher level of preparedness for a safe, successful hiking trip.

• Snow falls on Mt. Washington during every month of the year. High winds and dense fog are common.
