The snow covered rocky summit of Mount Cardigan, at 3,121 feet, affords a panoramic view stretching from rural New Hampshire in the foreground to the summits of the White Mountains in the distance. In 1855, a devastating fire burned over the summit and removed all the vegetation, including the thin soil. Well over a century later, the summit remains bare of all but a few lichens.
Snowshoes and traction devices are a must..
No dogs sorry
