Autumn: Evans Notch

Evans Notch (click on photos for enlarged view)

 

The Basin

The White Mountains are made up of series of “notches” – deep gorges between ranges that serve as mountain passes and are the source of infinite hiking trails, waterfalls, and wildlife.  The most famous notches are Franconia, Pinkham, and Crawford Notches, but Evans Notch on the NH-ME border is the closest to my home (15 minutes) and it is one of the most beautiful and least frequented or tourist-y.

Suspension footbridge on Wild River

Some great hikes include: Bald Face Mountain, The Roost, Chandler Gorge and Emerald Pool, Royce Mountain, Carter Notch, Wild River, Brickett Place and the Basin.  For advanced cyclists, Rte 113 (open only in summer and early fall) is smoothly paved, steep as heck and long, but it’s  worth every ache and pain.
