White Mountain National Forest (New Hampshire) – The White Mountain National Forest is a great place for a RV vacation. The forest offers great hiking, camping, and skiing located within New Hampshire and Maine. The Appalachian Trail can also be found here. While experienced hikers might want to try climbing Mount Washington, the area’s highest peak at 6,288 feet, an alternative is the 4-mile round-trip hike leaving from the Pinkham Notch Visitor Center up to “Lowe’s Bald Spot.” There are some steeper sections on this hike, but all are moderate and the steepest are eased with stone stairs, plus the hike offers superb panoramas.
