Lowes Path Trailhead

This trail, cut from 1875 to 1876 is the oldest of the mountain trails that ascend the peaks from the Randolph Valley. It is perhaps the easiest way to climb Mt Adams, with moderate grades (except for the steep middle section), good footing, and excellent views, but it still has considerable exposure to weather in the part above treeline. Hikers can park a vehicle at Lowe's Store in Randolph, NH for a small fee, and walk across Route 2 to the signed trailhead.
