Straddling The New Hampshire-Maine Border, These Two Mountain Siblings Are Neighbors In Different States

The roads and highways of New Hampshire are well-marked when it comes to crossing the states lines of our neighbors. Our mountains, however, know nothing of such boundaries. At the northern end of Evans Notch in extreme western Maine, West Royce Mountain and East Royce Mountain are a pair of peaks that reside on the boundary of New Hampshire and Maine. Visiting these summits creates a unique opportunity for a White Mountains hike in two states.

The best time of year to visit this White Mountains hike is in the summer, as Maine Route 113 through Evans Notch in is closed in winter and the trailheads are inaccessible during this time. For more information, visit Maine Trail Finder and also consult the AMC White Mountain Guide.

Plenty of hiking awaits in New Hampshire! Check out some low-key rambles around the state, visit some remote ponds, or enjoy five waterfalls that are all on one trail.
