  • Hike Tumbledown Mountain

    To keep the hike as short as possible, the hike can be an out and back at 5.6 miles, but if you wanted to make it a loop that is possible and adds only an additional 2 miles or so. We took the Brook Trail up to the summit (which passes by the alpi...

  • Hike Eyebrow Trail to Old Speck Mountain Loop

    The first time I attempted this trail was in mid April, and the slush and mud I encountered was absolutely unbelievable. Snowshoes were useless. Crampons were useless. Boots alone meant dirty, wet, muddy feet. So, I had to bail. But I came back in...

  • Hike to Frenchmen's Hole

    The highlight of this swimming hole is a waterfall into a giant pothole 10 feet below, with lots of great spaces for cliff jumping. Always remember to scout an area before cliff jumping. Make sure your landing space is clear of rocks.

  • Hike to the Top of Table Rock

    Though the trail may seem a bit daunting at first (especially for beginners), this out-and-back hike isn't all that difficult. At the trailhead (located almost directly behind the sign "Entering Dixville Notch State Park"), you'll begin by walking...
