  38. Alternative Hikes Around the White Mountains

    Date: May 20th, 2020

    Alternative Hikes Around the White Mountains

    There are thousands of trails in the White Mountain National Forest, yet there are a handful in each section of the White Mountains that tend to get a lot of foot traffic. As we navigate the tricky waters of social distancing, it is important to continue to give people space on the trails and if you see that a trailhead parking lot is full or close to being full, it is a great idea to have a Plan B or C to fall back on.

    We have compiled a list of some of the more popular hikes that you may have seen or read about along with a few alternatives you may want to try instead. While this is certainly not a complete list, it is a nice overview to get you started.

    Need some more resources? The White Mountain National Forest's website is a great place to start and you can also give them a call at 603-536-6100.

We are looking forward to welcoming guests as they join us in a weekend celebrating the Jazz Age Era in true style. Taste exquisite, award-winning cuisine during themed meals, take a dance class, join us for a Jazz Picnic on the lawn, enjoy historic tours of the Grand Dame and lectures about the Grand Hotels of the Granite State, have high tea (or a more forbidden party in The Cave- once a Prohibition Era Speakeasy!). Friday evening starts with a welcome reception, with opportunities to buy or rent costumes for the weekend, get their photo taken by a vintage photographer, purchase a treat from cigarette girls wandering the Great Hall, hear the “Opening Season” clock chime, and sip favorite cocktails. Saturday brings a gourmet breakfast, before immersing guests in a selection of fun workshops and classes- from etiquette, floral arranging, and Jazz Era dancing, to monetary conference lectures, whiskey tastings, and billiards rooms, to more modern experiences like yoga, hiking, and Zumba before lunch. Step back in time to the Golden Era, and enjoy an afternoon of picnicking among sweet notes of jazz, lively performances, and more on our expansive lawn. The highlight of the day whisks guests to Jay & Daisy’s Roaring Twenties in a Great Gatsby-themed dinner complete with bubbles that would secure any flower’s affection, Oysters Rockefeller, and of course, twelve lemon cakes. Guests are encourage to show off their new talents and knowledge, at a little party that never killed nobody! The weekend wraps with breakfast and a send off fit for our Grand Hotel royalty, Princess Carolyn, with the hopes our guests will join us again next year for another magical weekend!

    Allan Crabtree has been hiking the hills and mountains of NH and Maine all his life. Join Allen for his stories and photos of his adventures hiking as a senior, complete with his hiking tips and outinfs for seniors in Western Maine and the White Mountains.

  122. First Day Hike-Flume Gorge

    Join park staff for a self-guided hike through the winter woods of Franconia Notch State Park- Flume Gorge. This is an opportunity to experience winter hiking in the White Mountains and the Flume gorge. See what the Gorge looks like in the winter and get a glimpse of the forces that formed the Flume during the ice age. Find animal tracks in the snow and listen to the wind through the silent hardwood forest. The hike will begin from the North side of the Gilman Visitor Center (closed in winter) and follows the summer route of the Flume Gorge trail. Guest will have two hike options, Option 1 – The 2-mile Flume Gorge Trail Loop. This option takes you past the Flume covered bridge to the base of the Gorge. It then traverses around the Gorge (boardwalks are removed for the winter) and brings you to a look off above Avalanche Falls at the top of the Flume Gorge. The trail then takes you west to the Pool and Sentinel Pine Covered bridge and back to the visitor’s center. Option 2 – A shorter hike option is a 1 1/2 mile, out and back hike to the base of the Flume Gorge and back. Both hike options are moderate and require traction devices for walking on snow and ice. Snow depth may warrant the use of snowshoes. Dogs are welcomed but must be leashed! Owners are responsible for carrying out any pet waste.

  129. Climb Against Cancer

    The Climb Against Cancer has become symbolic of the hurdles that cancer patients, survivors, and their families must overcome to win the battle against cancer. Many people participate by hiking or sponsoring a hiker to celebrate survivorship; others come to commemorate the lives of those who lost the battle with cancer. And still others hike to raise money for their friends and neighbors who are being helped by Jen’s Friends. The hike up and down the slopes of Cranmore Mountain is approximately three miles. Participants may choose to hike the entire or partial route. Those who hike to the top of the mountain will be entertained with live performances by local singers and dancers and wonderful views. Snacks and water are also provided. After the hike, participants are treated to lunch and more live entertainment. Awards and prizes are also given out to the teams and individuals who raised the most money.
