Mount Hayes Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Mount Hayes is the place to hike to in early spring and late fall. About 2,000 feet lower in elevation than the surrounding Northern Presidential and Carter– Moriah Ranges, its open, 2,555-foot summit provides a platform from which to look up to those higher peaks, which are often covered in snow, while Mount Hayes is free of any frozen precipitation.
Rising from the Androscoggin River Valley, the hike, which gains approximately 1,500 feet in 3 miles, begins by winding through stands of paper birch and passing by several views of the river below and the mountains above."
