Winter can be a wonderful time of year to hike in the White Mountains. But careful planning and understanding of the hazards is critical.o safely explore the mountains in winter.

Digital Day-Use Passes Now Available

As most visitors to the White Mountain National Forest are aware fees are required at many of the developed recreation sites on the National Forest.  These fees help to maintain and improve these popular sites.  We are very pleased to announce a new convenient way for visitors to purchase a day use pass online at Recreation.gov.

Water Safety

Heavy rain can create potentially dangerous and life threatening situations if attempting a water crossing or simply getting too close to take the perfect picture.  
Refresh your water recreating safety knowledge before heading out on your trip.

Be Bear Aware

Although normally shy and afraid of humans, black bears can enter into more visited areas of the forest more readily as they become accustomed to even the smallest remnant of food. Learn about how following safe food storage practices can help protect both visitors to the forest and these special forest residents.
