The Cog Railway to the top of Mount Washington was well worth the time and ticket price. It was three hours well spent.

Worth the visit to see the changing leaves and scenery. It was overcast the day we visited so could not get clear view of Mount Washington.

Very good short hike to the picturesque Arethusa falls. Times are about 50 minutes there and 50 minutes back for those of average fitness. Perfect short hike for those who have limited time. Take insect repellent in summer!

So beautiful, must do anytime of year! Looks like you're in The Rocky Mountains! It's easy to get to with some great scenic vistas along the way to get out and walk.

We took the scenic route in the White Mountains, driving up the winding, nail-biting road to the top of White Mountain. We enjoyed the informative CD provided by the rangers at the beginning of our climb up the mountain. Views spectacular. One could take a...More
