Mount Kearsarge, Warner

(5/5 based on 35 reviews on the web)
Mount Kearsarge is a mountain located in Wilmot, New Hampshire, and Warner, New Hampshire. Two state parks are located on the mountain: Winslow State Park and Rollins State Park. On a very clear day, skyscrapers in the city of Boston, Massachusetts away are visible from the fire tower on the summit. The summit has remained bare since a 1796 forest fire.The name of the mountain evolved from a 1652 rendering of the indigenous name for the mountain, Carasarga, which it is surmised means "notch-pointed-mountain of pines."GeographyKearsarge is a monadnock, and although of only moderate elevation, its isolation gives it 2100ft of relative height above the low ground separating it from the higher mountains farther north. That makes Kearsarge one of twelve mountains in New Hampshire with a prominence over 2000ft.Mount Kearsarge stands within the watershed of the Merrimack River, which drains into the Gulf of Maine. The western slopes of the mountain drain into Cascade Brook, which flows north to the Blackwater River, a stream which flows around the northern and eastern base of Kearsarge, eventually draining into the Contoocook River, a tributary of the Merrimack. The northern and eastern slopes of the mountain drain more directly into the Blackwater River. The southern face of Mount Kearsarge drains into Meadow Brook, a tributary of the Warner River, which flows southeast to the Contoocook River.
