There is something almost magical about making tracks in the fresh snow of a cross country or snowshoe trail. The only sound you hear is the “swish, swish” of your feet in the snow. The White Mountains is certainly known for an abundance of wooded trails that are perfect for hiking, biking, or enjoying other winter sports. We also know of some great spots that have entire trail systems for you to enjoy and spend the day outdoors. Take a peek!
