Opt outside and get some fresh air while enjoying one of the thousands of hiking trails in the White Mountains. Check the White Mountain National Forest website for information on any trail or recreation site closures and know your limits. In the higher elevations, you will most likely still encounter snow and ice, so plan for that if hiking those trails. https://www.fs.usda.gov/whitemountain
