A very short, gentle walk to a bald granite knob reveals open vistas of the White Mountains and acres and acres of blueberries! Foss Mountain is the perfect hike for toddlers ready to hit the trail on their own two feet, for older kids who want to pick blueberries, or anyone looking for a great view with little effort. Put simply, Foss Mountain has it all: a gentle walk, astounding views for a mountain this small, and acres upon acres of blueberries which are ripe for the picking June through August. You will not be disappointed.
