New Hampshire's 52 With A View

. Welch Mountain, New Hampshire White Mountains

Established by the Over The Hill Hikers, the New Hampshire 52 With A View list of peaks showcases some of the best scenic views in the state.

We've created a map that shows not only the 52 peaks but also illustrated preferred routes to reach them. Routes are listed below in order of mileage and includes links to downloadable maps. As Trailspotting explores and review each trail we also add links to our own trail reviews featuring descriptions, photography and more mapping. This list and map will be refined if we find more optimal routes or if conditions change. All mileages and elevation gains listed on this page are total and includes return trips on out-and-back routes. If you're also tackling the NH 4,000 Footers list be sure to see our notes at the end of the article.
