Take it slow as you chug your way to the top of Mount Washington in a traditional cogwheel train. This is the highest peak of The White Mountains and you can look out over four states and even into Canada. Sit on the rocky peak that’s dotted with large boulders, looking out over the forests of conifers and deciduous trees that spread out over the mountains, with a shimmering lake in the distance. At the end of the afternoon, stretch your legs in a wooden rocking chair on the porch of your country inn.

Your day-by-day itinerary

Arrival White Mountains

Today you’ll head deeper into the interior of New England, where you can hike through snowy hills in winter or swim in a mountain stream in summer. Along the scenic drives you will come across wooden bridges with a roof on top: the covered bridges, characteristic of this region. At the end of the afternoon, stretch your legs in a wooden rocking chair on the porch of your comfortable inn.

Train ride to the top

After a big country-style breakfast this morning, you will head out to White Mountains State Park. After an hour’s drive you will be at the foot of Mount Washington, where you’ll climb aboard a diesel-powered train that takes you to the top. The old cogwheel train doesn’t go fast, which allows you to look around at the conifers that have taken over the landscape, whilst a guide tells about the area. At the top you can enjoy the views and warm yourself up at the restaurant. In the afternoon, explore the North Conway area further, visiting Diana’s Baths falls in the middle of the forest or following paths over large river boulders and paddling in streams.

Departure from White Mountains

After a good night’s sleep, it’s time to leave the White Mountains. Head further inland to the verdant hills of Vermont, or drive north where you can eat lobster on the coast of Maine and hike along the cliffs near the Canadian border.
