Now that it’s no longer negative 1,000 degrees in New England, it’s time to get back on the trails. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but here are some of the best winter hikes in the Granite State.
This is one of the easier winter 4,000 footers and provides the best chance to encounter the always-audacious gray jays of the White Mountains.
This is a fairly easy hike with an incredible reward at the end. New Hampshire’s tallest waterfall is a sight to behold when frozen.
The Falling Waters Trail is part of the Franconia Ridge loop that traverses Lincoln and Lafayette. Weather up on the ridge can get dicey really quickly, but even if you only venture a couple miles up the trail, you will quickly understand how the trail got its name.
This is probably an even easier 4,000-footer than Mt. Tom and it also happens to be home to Waterville Valley Ski Resort.
This is one of our go-to New Hampshire hikes and the view of Lake Solitude in the winter is one of the best views south of the White Mountains.
