Mt Chocorua, Chocorua

(5/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
Mount Chocorua is a summit in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. At an elevation of 3490ft it is the easternmost peak of the Sandwich Range. Although the range is not outstanding for its elevation, it is very rugged and has excellent views of the surrounding lakes, mountains, and forests. Mount Chocorua's bare summit can be seen from almost every direction and can be identified from many points throughout central New Hampshire and western Maine.GeographyMount Chocorua is located in the town of Albany and is the easternmost peak of the Sandwich Range in New Hampshire's White Mountain National Forest. The Sandwich Range is located north of the Lakes Region and south of the Kancamagus Highway. The range extends about 30mi east-west from Conway on the Saco River to Campton on the Pemigewasset. Chocorua's summit is a picturesque rocky cone, and the mountain is purported to be one of the most photographed in the world (AMC Guide, page 310). One of the most photographed sites is from Chocorua Lake, which often casts a perfect reflection of the mountain top.Hiking trailsMount Chocorua is a popular destination for hikers. Although it is under in elevation, its bare and rocky summit commands excellent views in all directions. Since most trails begin at much lower elevations, a hike to the summit is a strenuous exercise. There are many trails up the mountain, and they can be quite crowded during the summer months. Especially popular are the Piper Trail ( each way from the east), the Champney Falls Trail (from the north), and the Liberty Trail (from the southwest).

  • This waterfall can be reached via a path from the parking lot. First $3.00 pay to park. There's going to be a path to the left of the river and a path to the right of the river. You should take the left path, so first the suspension bridge and then to the right. It's a pretty easy path and after an hour you have the waterfall on the left hand side. You need something climb up through a path. There is an upper part and a lower part of the waterfall. However when we were there, there was almost no water. That came through the drought during last summer. But it remains a beautiful piece of nature. At the beginning of the trail are signs with information about what is here 100 years ago. The trail was when a railway to transport the wood from the forests. And if you run then you see still the old sleepers and nails of the old railway.
