Hike the Lafayette-Lincoln Loop

New Hampshire Mt. Tecumseh Trailhead

Added by The Outbound Collective

This is a great moderate hike that takes you into the heights of the Sandwich Range and offers incredible views of the dramatic landscape.

Begin at the Mt. Tecumseh trailhead. You will hike for 1.2 miles before your first vista. Continue from there another mile until you arrive at the junction with the Sosman Trail. Stay right and continue another 0.3 miles to reach the summit of Mt. Tecumseh. At just over 4,000' this peak offers incredible views of the Sandwich Mountain range. When you've had your fill of splendid wilderness experienced from the height of Mt. Tecumseh, retrace your steps back down the mountain.
