That is very cool. My favorite sub 5000 foot peak in NH. Most climbed peak also. I stop there almost every trip up route 16 to enjoy the view for a few minutes and take a photo or two.

Seems like the reverse of the quarter should say either White MountainS or White Mountain National Forest and not just White Mountain New Hampshire but maybe that's just me.

Everyone must have some and should post their favorite Mt. Chocorua picture here in tribute! :D

We didn't have especially good luck weather-wise when we hiked it in April 2010

My dad really wants to hike it though, so we will be going back!

So where's yours? My favorite pic is from when I was 9 or so and climbed it with my dad and sister... don't have a digital copy though. Chocorua is very high priority on my list to hike this year, can't wait to get back. Meanwhile here's a pic of Signal Ridge and Chocorua that I like:

The view at the top deserves as much as from the bottom

I'll work on that when I get home later. Like asking me to pick a favorite child though! :wink: I try to climb it at least once a year but my favorite pictures always seem to be when I'm just driving by it, although as thegibba said the view from the top is quite nice too. Has to be one of the best panoramas out there.

I say if there ever is a Hike-NH group hike again we all do it there. Plenty of trails for everyone to pick their own way and meet on top.

I rarely drive by without stopping. This one was the cover of a calender I made last year. I like clouds in photos but the reason I like this one is that it's over Little lake, not Chocorua Lake as all my others. Which I had to slightly trespass to get.Image

That shot would be well worth the fine Joe. Just amazing.

Hard to narrow it down to one picture or even one of a sunset but I've enjoyed a bunch of them from there on my way home. It's a great spot to just relax and unwind or even go for a swim before the 2 hour ride for me.

Very nice GG. Joe, I'd say the same, but that photo could really use some clouds :wink: Photoshop, maybe? Kidding... nice photos all around.

No, you're right. It's actually pretty terrible. It sounds like one of those automated bot sites looking for the most page views.

Come to White Mountain New Hampshire. For a good day hike try Arethusa Falls Trail or Diamond Peaks. The nearest city is Second College Grant so grab a bite to eat and then head over to Adams Slide Trail or Great Bay National Wildlife Refuge. If there is time left make sure not to miss King Ravine, Whitefield, and Rhode Island. The Kancamagus Highway is a popular stop.


Are people going to go there wanting to climb "White Mountain" now?

I think I've been up it 5 times but only once I've had a camera and nothing real good came out so I'll just give you everyone's favorite thing:

Excellent pics Joe & GG . Joe I like how you covered the lack of clouds with the title :)

This isn't exactly a 'favorite' but it's one of my quintessential Chocorua pics ;)

I've been fortunate enough to never have the crowds. Mainly because I've only hiked it twice. Once when I was 16 and don't remember the summit at all. And once a couple years ago with Bob on a Friday. I think while we were on the summit there were no more than a half dozen. Kinda hazy that day though.

Ive never seen so many trekking poles in one place as in that photo by Scooter. Looks like 90% of the people are using them to climb up a rocky scramble that I much prefer to use my hands on if anything.

Walrus, that was hilarious.

And the best shot I've seen of Gib's Irrelevance (that's what we named it, yes?) on the Carter Ledge Trail.


Anyway, of course we all love Chocorua, what a fantastic peak both to look at and to look from, as has been noted. My favorite, if I had to pick:
