North Conway Things to Do: 14 reviews and 14 photos


The 4000 footers are the mountains of New Hampshire, nearly 50 of them, that are 4000 feet and above. Since America is the land of the obsessive compulsive, there is a club for those who aspire to hike them all. These peaks range from gentle slopes that can barely be called summits to the top of Mount Washington, a hike that I still remember as strenuous. Whether you aspire to do one or fifty, there are plenty of trails and summits in this area to give you a workout. And, in case you're wondering, taking the Cog Railway doesn't count as a summit for 4000 footer purposes.
