This is my 1st year hiking and I'm having a lot of fun. I started out with Wachusett and then did Monadnock and after a recomendation I did the Welch Dickey Loop. I *loved* this one so much I came back to do it again this past weekend. I'm not quite ready for any of the longer 7-9 mile hikes but I'd like to try something else in the White Mountains. Can you recommend anything like Welch Dickey that isn't just a walk through the woods up and back? I loved the loop and that the scenery was changing all the time with lots of places to look out.
