"The Doublehead Ski Trail is a 1930s-era down-mountain trail full of interesting and exciting twists and turns that leaves from the summit of North Doublehead."

"You’ve hiked The Roost and Mount Agamenticus. Now you and the kids are ready to tackle a real mountain (and you’re even considering an overnight). North Doublehead is the mountain for you. With a White Mountain National Forest (WMNF) cabin at the summit, you can spend a relaxing evening miles from the nearest television or lawn mower. There’s no appropriate turnaround point along this route, so it would be something of a letdown if the group had to head back before reaching the summit. To avoid disappointment, make sure everyone (and everyone’s gear) is up to a steep mountain climb. Allow yourselves enough time for frequent rests and energy breaks."
