My only recommendation is that you go before the end of October and after it opens in the spring so you can climb the tower for the view. We did the mile and a half walk up and down and were disappointed that the tower was closed. The view is spectacular. Its a nice little outing.

Easy hike up the car path. Some branching trails, but we didn't explore. We went on a rainy day and still had great views with the breaks in the clouds. Would be incredible on a clear Fall day!

Unfortunately it was a cloudy rainy day, but we still hiked up the auto road. Due to the rain we had the mountain to ourselves.

Historic home of the famed senator and conservationist. Many original furnishings and accoutrements, in a beautiful setting. The ranger gives an up-close tour, and is rather enthusiastic in a quiet New England way. The tower is off to the side of the house.

Wow! Totally worth a visit. You can drive right up to the top of the mountain and can park within about 50 yards of the tower and nearby museum. The stone tower has about 40 sturdy metal stairs with hand rails leading to the observation deck. There are ample-sized landings every 6 stairs. The vistas from the top are truly... More

We visited the park when we were visiting NH in August. We did the nature walk and climbed to the top of the tower, which has amazing views of the White Mountains including the Presidential Range.

The Weeks Act helped to create the White Mountain National Forest. Weeks State Park is the summer home of Mr. Weeks. Home sits on top of Mt Prospect. Home is great example of the old summer homes that the wealthy owned. Stone fire tower offers great views of the surrounding countryside and the Presidential White Mountain Range. Property has many... More
