THE “MONTALBAN WHITES” – The southern terminus of the Cohos Trail begins in the White Mountain National Forest. It takes at least two days of hiking to transit the route from southern Crawford Notch at Notchland to the Mt. Washington Hotel. In between are some of the tallest peaks in the Northeast, including 6,288 foot Mt. Washington. The trail crosses near the headwaters of the Saco River, reaches four waterfalls, and approaches Dry River Shelter and the AMC’s Lake of the Clouds Hut (depending on which of two alternate routes your take).
