Mount Chocorua (IPA: /ʃʌˈkɔʊˌɹwə/) is a 3,490 ft (1,060 m) mountain in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the easternmost peak of the Sandwich Range. Although the mountain 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 identified from many points throughout central New Hampshire and western Maine. Many hiking trails ascend the mountain. Scenic Chocorua Lake lies directly to the south.

  • We did the loop that has a bunch of pretty sketchy bouldering and rock scrambling. Would recommend for experienced hikers who are fit and comfortable with advanced rock scrambling. A great reward at.....  more »
  • Went in-and-out via the Champney Falls trail on a clear fall day. Trail was busy, but not congested except at some of the rock scrambles near the top, where everyone had to funnel into a single file....  more »
  • This is an easy/moderate hike. It is about 3 hours to summit. Very pretty hike. We did Champney Falls on the way back, they are very pretty. This hike allows you to either summit or hike into the...  more »

  • Great views!!
  • One of the best sub-4k mountains New Hampshire has to offer.
  • I've hiked this mountain over 10 times and always enjoy the rock scrambling at the top of the mountain. Proper hiking gear is necessary in order to maintain enjoyment and safety. The views are spectacular and provide a great glimpse into hiking larger mountains in New Hampshire.
  • Great climb, great views. Gets pretty challenging towards the peak. Could be better trail marked up top. But.....well worth the work. Check out the falls on the way up or down.
  • Gorgeous trail! We started off at the Piper trailhead, then took the Nickerson/Carter Ledge route, which took us through the Sisters summit and then to Chocorua summit, and for the way down we took the Piper trail. It took us about 6 hours round-trip, excluding our lunch break. It was fairly strenuous and good thing we packed snacks and a lot of water! The trail is beautiful the whole way; in the beginning there's lush forest, then you get some nice ledges, and finally come the bald face rock scrambles with views in all directions. The summit of Chocorua is really windy, but has many good spots for lunch that are somewhat protected from the wind. We did this hike in May and there was still snow in parts, but not too much to require crampons.
