Burnt Meadow Mountain, close to the New Hampshire border, comprises three similar summits. The well-marked (though somewhat overgrown) route described here scales the eastern spur of North Peak and offers grand views beginning just 0.15 mile from the start. The broad, grassy summit gives kids room to run and adults room to spread out a feast with the White Mountains as a backdrop. The climb is somewhat steep—count on carrying preschoolers part of the way.
