Runner Notes [Suggest Changes]

Keep an eye out for slippery rocks and roots, as well as the occasional cobblestone that might throw you off-balance.

Description [Suggest Changes]

At first, Copple Crown Trail rises slightly, then falls gradually into a small drainage. Don't be fooled, however, as this run has only begun! After crossing an ephemeral stream, the path begins to steepen. Follow the obvious blue blazes as the trail switchbacks around cascading water features, through granite boulder fields, and up the rooty slopeside.

Eventually, after some huffing and puffing, you'll finally reach an intersection with the Copple Crown East Peak Trail. Unless you intend to hit both summits, stay right and motor your way to the top of Copple Crown!

Though the summit area itself is small, the views are massive. To your left (west) you'll see Lake Winnipesaukee and to your right (north) you'll see Lake Wentworth. Of course, the White Mountains provide the perfect backdrop for these pristine lakes.

Flora & Fauna [Suggest Changes]

Orchids and ferns are present throughout, making for an enchanting experience. In addition, maple and pine trees grow in tight quarters in this area, which makes for abundant shade. Keep an eye out for blueberry bushes at and near the summit.
