"Constructed by Nathaniel Davis in 1845 as a 15-mile bridle path to Mount Washington, the Davis Path soon became too difficult to maintain. Fortunately, the route was resurrected in 1910 for hiking and for the past century has led many an adventurer on an enjoyable excursion. Passing just beneath the summit of five scenic peaks, the trail combines pleasant ridgeline hiking with some of the White Mountains’ most alluring vistas. This recommended daylong trek ventures along the path’s first 3.7 miles and visits two incredibly picturesque mountaintops. In the process, you’ll discover a trail that demands future exploration."
