On a clear day, the 6,288 foot summit will give you a view that stretches from the Atlantic Ocean in the east, across Vermont to New York's Adirondack Mountains in the west, to Canada in the north, and to Massachusetts in the south. The summit boasts a day-use visitor center and museum, and the AMC's Lakes of the Clouds Hut is located just below the summit.
There are numerous short and long day hikes in the area. Many include spectacular views, impressive cascades, and tiny mountain ponds; all include a walk through beautiful woods. Trails in general are rough and rocky and many are steep and exhausting. The White Mountain Guide, published by AMC Books, is a valuable resource that provides detailed trail information, as well as safety guidelines, historical and geological notes, and information on facilities, recreation, and camping.
