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.
