Wildcat Mountain, Jackson

4.3
Wildcat Mountain is a mountain located in Coos County, northern New Hampshire, United States. The mountain is part of the Carter-Moriah Range of the White Mountains, on the east side of Pinkham Notch. Wildcat Mountain faces Carter Dome across Carter Notch to the northeast, and Mount Washington across Pinkham Notch to the west.
Wildcat Mountain has five summits — A, B, C, D, and E — along Wildcat Ridge, which curves two miles (3 km) to the south and west. Both A, at, and D, at, are considered "four-thousand footers". B, with an elevation of, and C, at, lack the topographic prominence to be considered more than subpeaks of Wildcat A. Likewise, the E peak, at, is considered to be a subpeak of the higher D peak (the E peak was formerly believed to be the higher of the two, and used to appear on the official list of four-thousand footers, but current topographic maps reveal the D peak to be the higher summit).
The Appalachian Trail, which extends over from Georgia to Maine, climbs up from the Appalachian Mountain Club's Joe Dodge Lodge in Pinkham Notch and traverses the summits of the Wildcat Ridge, continuing on to Carter Dome.

  • This place it’s near the white mountains, you don’t need to pay park over there. There are trails that you can go up to the top walking though the ski trail, it’s hard to go up there,cuz it’s too inclination. The guys also have zip line, it’s cost $35 per person, and the second turn it’s $.10. It’s a good experience. I liked it so much. I recommend this place. You can see a wonderful view of Mount Washington, it’s definitely amazing. I loved it. One of the best places I have been.
  • Second time I've taken the Wildcat Gondola in the summer during a family vacation to the White Mountains. Spectacular views of the presidential once you are on top and the summit of Wildcat D with viewing platform is just a few minutes hiking away. It's never crowded and during both visits (both during peak summer tourist season) involved zero wait to board our gondola for going up and down. It's a fun, easy, and relatively quick activity to add to a mix of things to do in the area.
  • My sister had her wedding here and the views were amazing even on the cloudy days! We took the gondola up right before the peak for her ceremony, absolutely amazing place!
  • We had my daughter's wedding here. The venue lady Eva was so accommodating and helpful. The food at the reception was delicious!
  • The gondola was a nice ride, there are some nice hiking trails at the top go prepared and know that there are lots of boulders, tree roots, and obstacles some of the trails go four miles plus round trip, now down on the bottom across from the parking lot there is a large yellow chair that kids can have there picture taken, behind that chair there is a trail that is better suited for younger children follow this till you get to a devide in the trails go right it will bring you back go left to the falls about 3/4 of a mile
