Indian Head Hike, White Mountain NH photos

By
Managing Real Estate Broker with Alpine Lakes Real Estate Inc., NHRE# 02863

Wednesday in the White Mountains of New Hampshire...I try to explore a hike or some other recreational activity on my day away from the real estate office. This weeks was a four mile round trip gaunt in the woods Mount Pemigewasset - Also known as Indian Head.

     Indian head from two miles away...This is supposed to look like a Native American with a headdress.

  The Flume parking lot of the Franconia Notch parkway is where you'll start this hike. Lincoln New Hampshire. The start of the hike...is paved and doubles as a bike path and winter snowmobile corridor through the notch. We really wanted to hike the Flume gorge...but found the board walk had been taken down for the winter. Still a nice hike but getting in to the Flume, and not being able to see the best part sealed the deal we decided to pass today and do Indian Head.

 

 

 

  A mile in to the hike we hit snow which made it slippery but pretty, and still well worth the views ahead.

        The out cropping of rock, at the top features about a 100 foot drop...and a great view.

   Eastern view over towards Loon Mountain ski resort...just a dusting at 3,000 feet.

Top Of Mount Pemigewasset 2,560 (also known as Indian Head)...Looking South View of I-93.

The View of Mount Lafayette... elevation 5,260 feet -way above the snow line even in early November .

Mount Lincoln...on the right is a little closer in proximity to this shot so it may look higher but it's 5,080 feet.

Exiting Indian Head...is the final view before heading back in to the woods , a beautiful North western range which I'm sure would be great to witness at sunset ...but the hike down would have been no fun. Good-night White Mountains of New Hampshire...there are 48 - 4,000 plus foot mountains in New Hampshire...I will work on doing them all in time.

   Got to run before we lose our light...hope you enjoyed my White Mountain NH hike photos tonight

I've been there! Even though you've done a great job with these photos, it's hard to take in the true beauty and the spectacular views without actually being there.

Today, my Wednesday, I took at 17 mile drive thru scenic San Marcos to my office where it was 90 degrees outside and very dry. No pictures, just mental ones. Your experiences are much more interesting (although I bet you didn't call the CEO of Wells Fargo today).

Judy...it was a nice hike, if you get the chance you should give this one a try.

Melissa...I had the boss with me today, and didn't need to call any CEO's from the woods.

Sharon...It was 28 degrees at the start of our hike, and lots of snow as we made our accent. I don't know if you hike but this is an easy one with great views for relatively little effort.

Bill... There is a hotel of the same name Indian Head just down the hill from the trail head...and it has a great viewing tower for the best sights around...80 steps instead of a 4 mile round trip.

Love the photos.  I'm not a big fan of heights though, so the ones at the peak made me a bit dizzy!

I love New England and would gladly visit NH any day!  I recently returned from Oregon which also has beautiful views but not the interesting history and picturesque towns that New England has.
