White Mountains, New Hampshire
As you approach the White Mountains, you can spot the often snow-capped
peak of Mt. Washington. A huge range of leisure activities and pure nature await
you in one of the most beautiful forest regions in the northeastern United
The White Mountains span a quarter of the state of New Hampshire and a small
part of the state of Maine. With Mount Washington you will also find the highest
mountain in the northeast of the USA. In autumn and winter the climate in the
White Mountains is rougher than in the western Green Mountains. The mountains
are therefore often covered with snow and owe their name to this fact. There are
extensive hiking trails through the huge forest area, which can also be used as
cross-state skiing trails in winter.
The White Mountains offer a wide range of activities. In the Attitash
Mountain Resort, an amusement park-like facility, young and old can let off
steam and have fun. You should also take the Cannon Trail Tramway to Cannon
Mountain and enjoy the view of several states - even Canada as far as the
weather is good. You can also explore the White Mountains on an extensive bike
tour or on horseback. The regional waters enable kayaking or boat trips.
