Yankee Magazine offers readers fall travel ideas, including a hike up Welch-Dickey. Read the travel suggestions, below. (Note: I added links)
Leaf-peepers looking to visit New England this fall can find travel ideas for New Hampshire’s White Mountains and the Berkshire Mountains of Western Massachusetts in the September-October issue of Yankee Magazine. The magazine also offers live foliage maps and best drives for autumn color around the region online at YankeeFoliage.com.
For hikers, Yankee recommends five trails in the White Mountains, including the Edmands Path and Mount Eisenhower Loop, 6.6 miles, with a steep 4,760-foot ascent, beginning at a trailhead on Mount Clinton Road in Crawfords Purchase. Less challenging but with some rock scrambling is a 4.4-mile hike on the Welch-Dickey Loop Trail in Waterville Valley, with vistas of the Mad River Valley. Also on the list are the Mount Willard Trail, 3.2 miles, and longer hikes on Franconia Ridge (9 miles) and Mount Chocorua (Champney Falls Trail, 7.6 miles).
