“A gradually steepening trail ascending from valley to summit ridge with great views throughout.”— 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.
I assure you that you'll not befall the same fate, but you'll enjoy the incredible setting that this run places you within.
The trail then becomes steeper and changes into a series of switchbacks, stone steps, and paving. The Camp Penacook Spur Trail at 3.1 miles branches off to the left and ascends .2 miles to the shelter. Open ledges are soon discovered giving great views to the north, east and south. The Champney Brook Trail comes in on your right at 3.9 miles and .2 miles further, the West Side Trail comes in on your right. The Piper Trail continues following yellow blazes over open ledges to the summit push.
