From the picnic table at the scenic overlook on a flat spot on Farwell Mountain, life can be grand. Out in the distance, the Mahoosuc and Presidential Ranges stand at attention. Mount Washington, the Carter-Moriahs, Sunday River Ski Area, Mt. Will, and even Old Speck line the horizon. This is one of the finest views in the Bethel area. But you have to work to get there. The Scenic Overlook, as it’s called at Carter’s, is fairly well known. With the introduction in the winter of 1998–99 of a new long, steep trail called Dick’s Dive, advanced skiers who like challenges will earn those views. Surface quality: Groomed.
