Mount Whiteface Trail

Mount Whiteface Trail Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Scenic ridges, wooded summits, gently sloping valleys, and short, steep ascents characterize many of the hikes in the southern White Mountains. Since the late 1800s, Wonalancet Village and members of the Wonalancet Out Door Club (WODC) have constructed and maintained trails throughout this area, while inviting guests to partake of the region’s tranquil beauty.

From the Ferncroft trailhead alone, no fewer than six loop hikes of varying lengths and degrees of difficulty can be completed. This recommended loop over Mount Whiteface, though long, includes many miles of peaceful ridge-walking where you are more apt to stumble upon a family of ruffed grouse foraging in the thick vegetation than fellow hikers following in your footsteps."

"For more than a century, the Wonalancet Out Door Club (WODC) has maintained a collection of scenic and challenging trails that explore the White Mountain National Forest’s most southern range. Within this region’s sweeping ridgelines and steep mountain slopes lie an abundance of gems: quiet vistas, fern-draped forests, and gnarled rock outcrops. Perhaps the most spectacular of these features is the prominently visible Mount Whiteface, the area’s signature summit. While accessible from a number of directions, this circuit beginning from the Ferncroft trailhead provides the most options with varying lengths and degrees of difficulty."
