Doublehead Ski Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"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."
--David Goodman, Best Backcountry Skiing in the Northeast (Appalachian Mountain Club Books).
"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."
--Cynthia Copeland, Thomas J. Lewis, & Emily Kerr, Best Hikes with Kids: Vermont, New Hampshire & Maine (The Mountaineers Books).
