White Mountains (New Hampshire)New Hampshire.
The White Mountains are the most rugged mountains in New England.
The White Mountains region has extensive mountain hiking year round.
- Mount Chocorua (3,475 feet) is strenuous despite being below 4000 feet. It has an exposed summit. The 4.5-mile Piper Trail ascends from state route 16 in Albany, NH with roughly 2700 feet of elevation gain.
Crime is not an issue in the White Mountains, it's virtually non existent. However, one should be aware of basic wilderness survival skills when outdoors due to the harsh nature of the area's climate and lack of civilization. Also, moose and deer on roads can cause accidents, with moose accidents more serious than the latter.
