Hiking the White Mountains
by Lisa Densmore (Falcon Guides)
A steady climb to a fire tower with a particularly fine 360-degree view that includes Mount Washington, Wildcat, and the Moats. Kearsarge North, also called Mount Pequawket after the Indian tribe that lived in the area until the 1700s, is a dominant landmark on the northern end of North Conway. It is the mountain immediately north of the Cranmore ski area and is easy to recognize with its conical shape and fire tower on top, which many feel offers one of the best views in the White Mountains. The trail, called the Mount Pequawket Trail on older maps, enters the woods heading north, immediately crossing a wet area and passing near a couple of houses.
