Just off of the iconic Kancamagus Highway, this small-yet-mighty mountain features open ledges with spectacular views, a gentle grade, and a quiet, secluded trail. Mount Potash is a delightful hike for families: short, gradual, and highly rewarding with open ledges providing excellent views in all directions. Even the drive up the Kancamagus Highway is an experience. Travelers from all corners of the world flock to this famous road for its serpentine curves up the Swift River and excellent views of the White Mountains. While this area can get crowded on sunny weekend days, you can escape the masses on Mount Potash and enter the calm silence of the North Country woods.
