Even though this is a New England list, you can see much of it from the summit of Mégantic (I can vouch, since I've hiked it). Therefore, even though it is in Canada, I think it should be an honorary inductee, so to speak.

I think, much like hikes that require traverses and bike spots, passport hikes are probably prohibitive to some. It's a nice view, but getting a passport for it seems a bit much, eh?! :D

Hopefully no Canadians are reading this... :lol: .

As far as the passport thing goes, you technically don't need one to get into Canada. Going back home is where you'll want one :wink:

Well, I don't know about you, but I kind of like returning home after a hike! :D

Also, on a traverse, you don't technically ever have to get back to your car either. :wink:

Sorry, I've just never been impressed with Willard. It's like tunnel vision. Not a whole lot to see.

You get a much better view of the notch from Webster IMO. 8)


We are heading up to the Whites are the first weekend of Oct. This view looks just like the hike I want to take my parents on. Question: I've been trying to research Webster to see how long the hike is and if that pic was taken at the summit? We all can handle a moderately difficult hike but we won't have time for a hike that takes more than 3 hours. Besides this hike, could you recommend any other less than 3 hr hikes that give great fall foliage views without being terribly difficult? I LOVE landscape photography and looking for good locations like your pic. TIA!

Hey tjbarney,

Yes, Willard is a very easy hike that is only about 3 miles round trip. The view above is from the main ledge, which is a tad below the summit, but there is no trail all the way to the summit (which is wooded)

For more easy view hikes consider:

The Boulder Loop
West Rattlesnake by Squam Lake
Mount Potash
Table Mountain in Bear Notch
Artist Bluff/Bald Mountain
Frankenstein Cliff
Rattlesnake in Rumney
Stinson Mountain
Black Cap in Conway

Yes, Webster is great, but to get the best out of it you have to go up Webster Cliff trail like in the report GG posted, and because of the mileage and elevation gain involved it probably will fall outside of the desired 3 hour limit you were hoping for.

Thank you, Brian. That is super helpful for us planning our day and hikes. I can't tell you how much I appreciate all of your help.
