Route Description

Shot from the summit snack...


Goshen Trail
Class 1
2.6 miles one way (5.2 miles roundtrip)
Elevation Gain 1400 ft.


The Goshen Trail is the least scenic of the three. It is also the easiest of the three to summit Mt. Sunapee. The trail though never gets close to the White Cliffs area and requires an extra 2.0 mile roundtrip trek.

The trail start as a gated road. It stay gravel until going over a brook at 3/4 of mile. The trail then becomes steeper and and rougher as you rise in elevation (still though class 1).The trail then runs into the Lake Solitude Trail at 2.4 miles. At this section head up the ski trail 0.2 miles to the summit.
