Ravaged by fires in the 1880s, today Welch and Dickey’s smooth granite domes provide some of the finest views in the White Mountain National Forest. This popular loop scales both summits and offers great dividends for the effort; however, do not underestimate the challenge. Steep in sections, the trail scrambles up exposed rocks from one dramatic perch to another. While accessible year-round, it is to be avoided when icy or when thunderstorms threaten. The mountains and their scenic ridges are especially enticing on crisp autumn days when the Mad River Valley is aglow in a potpourri of colors.
