Fully updated and available for the first time in rich, full color, this trusted guide from the publishers of the White Mountain Guide will lead readers to 60 of the most unforgettable day hikes in the breathtaking White Mountain National Forest.

Geared toward beginner and intermediate hikers, this guide has something for everyone, from family-friendly hikes to cascading waterfalls, to a challenging trek through Tuckerman Ravine and the Alpine Zone to the summit of Mount Washington. Readers can explore the region's legendary notches—Crawford, Franconia, Pinkham, Evans—and take in the views from some of New England's most picturesque and sought-after peaks along the Presidential Range.

Each trip includes a detailed map showing parking areas, trailheads, and natural highlights, along with summaries of time, distance, and difficulty level. A handy, at-a-glance trip planner makes it easy to find the best trails for kids, dogs, and winter snowshoeing and skiing.
