The Appalachian Trail travels about 161 miles in New Hampshire over some of the most difficult terrain hikers will experience anywhere along the AT. You'll find rough and steeper ground more frequent in New Hampshire as the AT travels over 17 mountains with peaks over 4000 feet including the famous 6288 foot Mount Washington. Welcome to the White Mountains. The trail in New Hampshire may be difficult, but it is also probably the most rewarding with spectacular views. You'll find yourself above the tree line at many spots along the trail and exposed to the elements.
Snow can fall on Mount Washington at anytime of the year, even in the summer! The wind on exposed peaks can be brutal at times. Remember that weather conditions can change rapidly on these open, exposed summits and each year hikers die! Be PREPARED. Many parking areas in White Mountains National Forest include a parking fee. Some of the tent sites also require a fee.
Many of the huts (shelters) in New Hampshire charge a fee and some even require reservations. The huts are owned by the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) and are really lodges. These large, enclosed lodges sleep from 36-90 people and are open from June to early September or early October, depending on the hut. Rates range from $90 to $110 depending on the day, AMC membership and the hut. These huts are listed below on the key points along the trail table. While we usually bold all shelters, the fee huts are not in bold.
