A short hike to a broad cliff and a lengthy view down the east side of Crawford Notch to Mount Chocorua. Mount Willard is a popular hike because it is a relatively easy 1.4 miles to the top. It is not the best choice on a fair summer weekend if you want to be alone, particularly now that the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Highland Center is virtually at the trailhead. But midweek, the odds are good that you will have the trail almost to yourself. Start at the trailhead for the Avalon Trail behind the Macomber Family Information Center, the renovated train depot across from Saco Lake. Follow the Avalon Trail across the railroad tracks and adjacent field to the edge of the woods (about 100 yards), where you’ll find the intersection with the Mount Willard Trail (blue blazes).
