“Waterfalls, stellar views, and an epic backcountry experience.”— Tom Robson
The White Mountain National Forest requires a recreation fee at most trailheads and developed recreation areas. There are self-serve pay stations at these locations, while longer term passes may be obtained at Ranger Stations and local vendors.
Money raised by the recreation pass fee is used to maintain and enhance recreation opportunities across the White Mountain National Forest.
Camping only allowed at Camp Penacook and Jim Liberty Cabin.
This route does get quite crowded, so try to leave early in the AM!
The first set of switchbacks is reached at 2.4 miles. At 3.0 miles the Middle Sister cutoff leads to the Middle Sister Trail. The Champney Falls Trail will reach a saddle and pass the Middle Sister Trail on the left. Soon the Champney Falls Trail ends at the junction of the Piper Trail, which will lead you to the summit in .6 mile.
