Carter Dome Professional Review and Guide
"Located in close proximity to the imposing Presidential Range, Carter Ridge is one of the finest vantage points from which to gaze onto the rocky summits and deep chasms of its taller western neighbors. This challenging all-day hike combines soothing mountain streams, a rugged boulder-filled notch, and the ridge’s most scenic location. In addition, the loop passes an Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) hut offering overnight accommodations (by reservation only) and traverses the ninth highest peak in New Hampshire. These trails are accessible year-round, so choose a clear day any time of year to fully appreciate the tremendous beauty."
