Evans Notch is a mountain pass less traveled in winter. The notch, which straddles the Maine-New Hampshire border, is in the mountains and woods of the White Mountain National Forest. The forest, known for its natural drama and diversity, covers some 775,000 acres. An estimated 4.5 million people visit the forest annually. Most don’t travel to the small section (49,346 acres) of the forest in Maine. It is their loss. One reason that this section is underutilized is that a portion of Route 113 that winds through the notch is closed in winter, severing the pass in half. The unplowed section though can be a playground for all sorts of recreational pursuits, like snowshoeing, cross-country skiing, and mushing. Surface quality: Unpacked.
