Situated two hours north of Boston you’ll find Alton, New Hampshire. Home to Lake Winnipesaukee and the popular mountain – Mount Major.
If you’re looking to escape the city, get in a great workout and take in the stellar views than the dive up is 100 percent worth it!
I recommend leaving as early as the lot at the mountain fills up fast! The hike up takes roughly two hours up and two down depending on your skill set. We took the blue trail, which was a moderate hike that had some large boulders to climb towards the top of the mountain.
After completing your hike stop by one of the local ice cream shops on the lake or fuel up with a fish dinner at Pop’s Clam shack.
Pro tip: If you’re new to hiking take the yellow trail. It may take you longer but there are fewer boulders to climb.
