The great weather report didn't work out so well and we were in the clouds all day. Overall, great trip. Swiss sleds on the way down was definitely the way to go despite the sporadic mud patches.

I got my kids interested in climbing by doing this mountain when they could barely just walk. It's an easy climb, with great views.Champney Falls is the more scenic route.

EtaoinWhen Chocorua Isn't Bald  Sucess!
I climbed Mount Chocorua after a night of camping in the forest at its base with a group of students in the New England Literature Program of the University of Michigan. All these students scramble up to the summit and enjoy their lunch. Many take out their journals and write about what may be their first experience climbing any real peak (as Michigan only offers hills). 40 college students up there covers the summit pretty well, at least as well as your average toupée. If you climb in early May you'll have a good chance of coming across them as a hike up Chocorua is prologue to a later trip they take up Mount Washington in early June.

Pretty decent snowboard run. Summit scramble is the highlight though. Top of Champney Falls Trail is narrow, middle sections would be great with a little pruning. I was able to make it all the way to the trailhead with some (a lot of) poling.

Champney Falls trail was well packed after a recent 2' snowfall. Very cold and windy but sunny and had the summit to myself. Rather unwisely chose to descend via Beeline/Bolles trails, only to find them mostly unbroken.

I recommend the Champney falls route to the summit. it was beautiful in full color of early October and the falls were quaint. The summit tends to be crowded but nice for scrambles and class 4 stuff. The views are nice as the summit is above treeline

I've climbed this mountain many times at all times of the year since I was 8 years old and every time has been a great experience!

Big Tom took me on the loop hike. Didn't see a soul on the way up, but lots of floks on top and the way down.
This eastern peak really impressed this westerner.

Beatuiful hike up the nicest 3000 footer around. Only other comparable 3k peak would be Noonmark in Keene Valley, Adirondacks. Broke off the main trail when summit came into view and found some 5th class to top out on.

Ridiculously hot day - haze diminished the view, but it was an achievement just to reach the summit. Not surprisingly, spent more time (and photo memory) at the waterfalls than at the top.

I climed this one with my Dad; which always makes for a great hike anytime you can take your father with you. The views were nice and it was a good workout.

A good workout, not sure it deserves the "most photographed title" though.

A good workout. Snow and ice on top. A little slick. I hiked the Piper Trail.

It's been so long, but this was one of the first peaks I bagged as a lad. Part of my 50-miler badge in the Scouts. I remember the views being fine.

Fun little mountain. It was chilling, raining and overcast when we hiked it but we still had fun.
