“One of the most popular and frequently photographed peaks in the White Mountains, Mount Chocorua offers many options to ascend its rocky summit. While you cannot go wrong regardless of your choice, this trek from the north provides the most moderate ascent and offers a number of intriguing diversions, including scenic Champney and Pitcher Falls and the serene, summit of Middle Sister Mountain. Believed to be the final chapter of an all-too-common struggle between European settlers and Native Americans, the mountain may hold the remains of a courageous young Chocorua who plunged to his untimely death hundreds of years ago.”
