Add to Shortlist

Days 1-2 Boston/Green Mountain National Forest

Days 3-4 White Mountains National Forest

Stop at Sugarbush Farm to sample some maple syrup, before reaching the ‘backbone’ of the northern Appalachians, White Mountains National Forest. Challenge yourself with one of the best hikes in New England on the trek to Lonesome Lake, and soothe sore muscles with a dip in the cool water.

The most secluded wilderness in the eastern United States, relax within the surrounding tranquillity.
