Springtime in the Mountains
With spring springing up all over, it's time to get outdoors to explore and enjoy nature waking up. Try waterfall watching, bike riding or zooming through the treetops on a canopy tour for a wonderful springtime experience.
Bicycling in the White Mountains
Remember hopping on your bike when you were a kid and heading out for a day's adventure with your friends? While the hopping part might be out of the question these days, biking is still a fun activity and we have mountain biking and multi-use trails suitable for every ability from easy rides to challenging hilly terrain with twists and turns.
Waterfall Watching Is Mesmerizing!
The sight and sound of a sparkling waterfall tumbling down a rocky slope is always a thrill, but especially so in the spring during snow melt-off when the cascading water is at its height. We have many to choose from in the White Mountains region, some close to the road and others that involve a short walk or a longer hike. These are some of our favorites.
The beautiful grounds surrounding the Adair were designed by the Olmsted Brothers, nationally renowned landscape architects who designed many public and private parks and gardens during the mid-20th century. Stately white birches, rambling stonewalls, perennial gardens that attract butterflies and songbirds, and walking trails throughout the 200-acre Adair property are worth exploring.
Thrilling Canopy Tours
Zipping through the treetops some 60 or 70 feet off the ground is an unparalleled adrenaline thrill. The Bretton Woods Canopy Tour and the Treetop and Skyrider Tours at Alpine Adventures in Lincoln provide bird's eye views of the land below and amazing scenic vistas in the distance.
Bird Watching in the White Mountains
Northern New Hampshire is prime birding territory and depending on the time of year, you'll discover lots of birds to add enjoyment to your walk or hike.
Drive along most any road in northern New Hampshire and you may spot a moose or two. To have the best chance of seeing one of these beautiful wild creatures book a seat on a moose tour.
