When it comes to epic mountains, New Hampshire is hard to compete with. With 48 mountains that are taller than 40,000 feet, New Hampshire is a hiker’s dream. But if you can only visit one, make sure it’s this amazing mountain in New Hampshire.
Of course, the most epic mountain in this state is Mount Washington.
This 6,288-foot peak is the highest in the North East. In addition to being known for its size, Mount Washington is known for its crazy weather.
No matter how sunny it is at the base, the weather at the summit can be fierce.
However, when the weather is good, Mount Washington is simply breathtaking.
The views from the summit stretch to Canada, east to the Atlantic ocean, and west to New York. In the picture below, the orange streak in the distance is the ocean, more than 70 miles away.
This is especially true on the morning that the summit is accessible at sunrise, providing an amazing start to the day.
Mount Washington is unique because it is so accessible, meaning anyone can enjoy the view from the summit, and look out over all of New England.
The Mount Washington Auto road allows visitors to access the summit in just an short car ride rather than an all-day hike.
The Cog Railway is another option for visitors who aren't ready for the drive. The train takes visitors directly to the mountain's summit, providing breathtaking - and harrowing - views along the way.
Of course, for most adventurous visitors there are also plenty of trails to the top.
No matter how you get to the top, you must visit Mount Washington.
The view, we promise, will drop your jaw.
