This is an iconic bald peak with an extensive walk above tree line and ever-expanding views as you climb. Mount Chocorua is a landmark peak just west of Conway. You can approach the mountain from every direction, and each approach is worthy in its own way. The trail described here, via the Champney Falls Trail, ascends from the north. It’s a lovely wooded walk at first, which passes an impressive waterfall for which the trail is named. It also allows extended climbing above tree line, with ever-expanding views. From the trailhead, the trail crosses Twin Brook on a bridge, then immediately comes to an intersection on the right with the Bolles Trail. Go straight, heading south. The walking is easy at first, a nice warm-up. The trail climbs gently, parallel to Champney Brook, then rises above it. At 0.7 mile, it passes through an airy hemlock grove over a mosaic of exposed roots to either side.
