Most Dangerous Places In New Hampshire
Are there any other dangerous towns in New Hampshire?
The dangerous towns in New Hampshire aren’t limited to those listed above. There are a few others, including Somersworth. With just under 12,000 residents, it’s a relatively small town; however, it has one of the highest crime rates in the state. In fact, there’s a 1 in 19 chance that you’ll be the victim of a crime in Somersworth, compared to safer cities, where the odds are more like 1 in 50. An abundance of property crimes is what really set Somersworth’s overall crime rate over the edge; however, its violent crime rate is pretty high too. There is good news, though. Not one violent crime resulted in murder.
What are the most dangerous hikes in New Hampshire?
The most dangerous places in New Hampshire aren’t limited to the locales above. There are several places in the state that can be pretty dangerous, including the Huntington Ravine Trail. Billed as one of the most difficult hikes in the White Mountains, the 2.4-mile trail traverses its namesake ravine, resulting in an elevation gain of 2,700 feet throughout the entire hike, making for a steep and strenuous trek! What’s more, the trail requires climbing open and exposed ledges, the use of hand holds, and good footwork, which is why it’s not recommended for novice hikers. The trail is even more dangerous in the winter, as avalanches are common.
