Hike Mt. Carrigain
New Hampshire › Signal Ridge Trailhead
Added by Danielle Tourigny
This hike meanders part of the way alongside a brook before it winds you way up along the edge of the mountain to a peak offering an unbeatable view of the forested New Hampshire mountain landscape.
Park on Sawyer River Road at the Signal Ridge Trailhead. Trail starts out as a mild climb and meanders with the Whiteface Brook. When you arrive at the Carrigain Notch Trail junction, turn left. Enjoy three miles of steep uphill along the mountain's edge. When you reach the the apex of Mt. Carrigain, take your time to enjoy the moment of rest and take in the surrounding wilderness. When you've had your fill, hike back the way you came.
There is a fire tower at the actual summit that you can go up for 360 degree views. The first (of many) awesome views are about 0.2 miles from the summit and then you duck back into the trees to make the last push to the summit!

This has been one of my favorite hikes in the White Mountains. It is a steadily gradual climb up to the summit, and the watch tower at the top provides incredible, 360 degree views of the surrounding mountains! I highly recommend!
