Lake Solitude - Mount Sunapee Trail Professional Review and Guide
"Located on a shoulder of Mount Sunapee, Lake Solitude and White Ledge above it are among the most peaceful hiking destinations in southern New Hampshire. White Ledge offers an arguably superior view compared to the top of the mountain, which is not above tree line, and it is definitely more of a wilderness experience.
The summit is cluttered with two chairlift terminals, a sizable lodge, and several smaller buildings. During certain summer weekends, the Mount Sunapee ski resort offers chairlift rides, crowding the summit with people who have either ridden up or hiked up a ski trail. Unless you need to stand on top of the mountain, White Ledge is the preferable destination, particularly with a dog."
