Welch Mountain and Dickey Mountain Professional Review and Guide

"This perfect, ledgy loop hike up and over two small mountains leads to amazing views of Franconia Ridge, Waterville Valley, and the Pemigewasset Valley. This popular hike over Welch and Dickey mountains is perhaps one of the most beautiful and satisfying trips in New England, with everything you could ask for: a mostly gentle grade (with some exciting slabs to climb near the top), excellent views from the ridge, two summits, and the satisfaction of a loop hike!

While it may be challenging for the toddlers (although it’s totally possible with an occasional ride from mom or dad), kids age 6 and up will love this hike for the wide-open skies and amazing granite slabs. In bad weather and wet conditions, be cautious on this hike: the slabs can be very slippery and the ridgeline is exposed."
