You don’t have to do a lot of advance planning to take on The Roost, a family favorite in the Evans Notch region of the White Mountain National Forest (WMNF). It’s a short, easy climb to the top of this hill, perfect for the little guys. Afraid the older ones will be bored? Let them race along the well-defined path to the summit sign for The Roost (there are no trail junctions to confuse anyone). As with so many other hikes included in this guide, a minimum effort reaps maximum rewards. The views to the north, south, and west over the Wild River Valley and Evans Brook Valley are delightful.
