Come to the White Mountain National Forest and discover the rich history of hiking.  With over 1200 miles of non-motorized trails, you have an opportunity for challenge, adventure and renewal. 

Hiking opportunities abound on the Forest from easy strolls into the wooded environment to challenging climbs above treeline.  Before heading out, be prepared with the 10 essentials (map, compass, warm clothing, extra food and water, flashlight or headlamp, matches/firestarters, first aid kit, whistle, rain/wind gear and a pocket knife).  The weather in the mountains can be unpredictable even if it is forecasted to be a gorgeous day.  The following list provides a few helpful links to help you prepare for a wonderful and safe experience:
