5. Event Description
Both Mount Crawford and Stairs Mountain are located in the Presidential Range Dry River Wilderness. Mount Crawford has some of the finest views in the White Mountains, easily rivaling the views from Mt. Hight, Mt. Bond, or Mt. Carrigan in the number of other 4,000 footers that are viewable. With 360 degree views from its open summit, you can see Mts. Washington, Monroe, Eisenhower, Pierce, Willey, Webster, Carrigan, the Tripyramids, Passaconaway, the Bonds, the Twins, and even distant Franconia Ridge.

After about 2 miles, theres a false summit on Mount Crawford, where you come out of the trees and onto open ledge. While the views here are tremendous, particularly of Mt. Carrigan on the other side of Crawford Notch, theyre even better at the real summit a bit further on. There you can take in a complete 360 degree panorama of mountains, including all of the southern Presidentials from Mt. Washington in the east to Mt. Webster overlooking Crawford Notch.

Directions: The large Davis Path Trailhead parking lot is located on US 302, 5 miles south of Willey House/Crawford Notch State Park and 12 miles west of Route 16. The Notchland Inn is located almost directly across the street.
