NH White Mountains: The Lay of the Land

The White Mountains include a huge variety of terrain, from windswept alpine areas above treeline to dense boreal forests, sheer cliffs and low-lying intervale and swamp land. There are 48 peaks over 4,000 feet in the White Mountains, and a number of notches (called passes or gaps in other mountainous regions). These include Pinkham, Crawford, Franconia, Bear, Kinsman, Jefferson, and Carter Notches. The terrain can be very steep and rocky, so plan accordingly, as short sections of trail can take much longer than anticipated.
