Great Glen Trails in the White Mountains
For many, the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of the White Mountains in New Hampshire is skiing. While the mountains certainly are a top destination for both downhill and cross country skiing, that’s certainly not all they have to offer. In fact, the White Mountains are a veritable playground for those seeking outdoor adventure, especially during the summer and fall months. One of our favorite places to visit is the Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center. It’s about an hour away from our Inn, at the base of Mount Washington, but offers guests the ultimate summer experience with hiking, biking, kayaking, and more.
One of the most popular activities at the Great Glen Trails Outdoor Center is kayaking, an activity that doesn’t immediately spring to mind in this mountainous region of New Hampshire. Great Glen Trails is a great place to spend the day on the water, taking a break from strenuous mountain activities. They offer a variety of kayaking tours, including half and full-day wildlife tours. It’s the perfect way to see nature up close and personal, with frequent sightings of moose, eagle, and osprey.
Great Glen Trails also has a variety of hiking and biking trails to explore, and they host a number of trail running events throughout the summer. In total, their trail network has 45 km (28 miles) of trails, each of which will lead you through the unparalleled beauty this area is known for.
