Best New Hampshire State Parks for Hiking

New Hampshire can boast over 4,000 miles of hiking trails, so there's plenty of room to stretch your legs in this state. Here are some of the most scenic hikes around:

  • Franconia Notch State Park

    Hike the Franconia Ridge Loop and Falling Waters Trail, through the White Mountain range. You will ascend to an elevation of 5,260 feet on Mount Lafayette. From there you can traverse Little Haystack Mountain, Mount Lincoln, and Mount Lafayette, soaking up sublime views on all sides as you go. Midweek and off season are the least crowded times in which to take on this hike.

  • White Mountain National Forest

    The ultimate White Mountain loop lasts for 19 miles, and winds from Mount Tripyramid to the Kate Sleeper Trail. Follow the Livermore Trail, which follows a burbling brook, until your reach the Sandwich Wilderness. Forests filled with wispy Wizard's Beard boasts the freshest air you've ever inhaled. Look out for wild blueberries as you ascend.

  • Mount Major State Forest

    Take on the Mount Major Trail. From the summit of Mount Major, you'll enjoy views of Lake Winnipesaukee. The fastest way up to the 1,786 foot summit is via this trail, which is moderately challenging and stretches for three and a half miles there and back.

Best New Hampshire State Parks for Adventure Sports

Magic carpets of stars, rock climbing, and snowmobiling along with ermine and foxes are just a few of the adventures that New Hampshire's State Parks have in store. Here are some ideas to get you started:

  • Pawtuckaway State Park

    Facilities for hiking, biking, and rock climbing await at this stunning state park. Popular with swimmers in the summer, it's a good idea to get here early to avoid the crowds. Climb the lookout fire tower and keep your eyes peeled for scampering deer and blue heron fishing at the lake.

  • Bear Brook State Park

    Gray fox and ermine dart through Bear Brook, where for half the year the trees are adorned with pretty garnishes of snow. Trudge through the winter wonderland of crystalline trees in the colder months, or snowmobile for faster exploration of this serene alpine ice palace.

  • White Lake State Park

    Camping beneath the stars in the White Mountains, you can look up and spot constellations recognized by Native Americans hundreds of years ago. Look out for the Dipper, which formed a bear to their eyes, the three 'handle' stars as hunters in pursuit. The Corona Borealis or Northern Crown and Hercules are also visible when the campfire grows dim. Tamworth is just far enough away from the glare of the city that the star-flooded sky reflects in the crystalline lake beneath.
