The New Hampshire Trail With A Cascade And Overlook You Just Can't Beat
By Ken MacGray|Published July 11, 2023
Hey! I'm a freelance writer and guidebook author. I've authored "New Hampshire's 52 With A View - A Hiker's Guide", serve as editor of Appalachian Mountain Club's "Southern New Hampshire Trail Guide", and and am co-editor of the "White Mountain Guide", also for AMC. I'm currently beginning work on the 6th Edition of AMC's Southern New Hampshire Trail Guide, which will be published in 2025. I live in southern New Hampshire and can usually be found wandering throughout the state's mountains and forests.
New Hampshire’s high peaks get all the glory among the hiking community – and for good reason. They provide some of the most challenging and spectacular terrain in the world. But amongst the taller peaks are a myriad of smaller mountains that are no less beautiful. These destinations are perfect for the beginner hiker or when you just want to stretch your legs and take in a nice view. One of the best short hikes in the White Mountains can be found on Mt. Willard in scenic Crawford Notch.
