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. https://www.fs.usda.gov/whitemountain
