Mount Kearsarge, Warner

#41 of 112 in Nature in New Hampshire
Mountain · Nature / Park
Mount Kearsarge is a mountain located in Wilmot, New Hampshire, and Warner, New Hampshire. Two state parks are located at the northern and southern bases of the mountain—Winslow State Park and Rollins State Park, respectively—and the entire mountain is within Kearsarge Mountain State Forest. On a very clear day, skyscrapers in the city of Boston 80 miles (130 km) away are visible from the fire tower on the summit. The summit has remained bare since a 1796 forest fire.

The name of the mountain evolved from a 1652 rendering of the native Pennacook tribal name for the mountain, Carasarga, which it is surmised means "notch-pointed-mountain of pines".

  • Amazing hiking spot. Don’t have to hike too far up to be rewarded with incredible views 😎 one of my favorites in NH!
  • Oh we had the most amazing time. We have been practicing with our daughter some flat trails and slowly progressed. This was the first Mountain my 6 year old climbed with no help from us. (Yes, I know, late bloomer). The place was beautiful and the parks below are quite well maintained. We entered in through Winslow State park and proceeded up the Winslow trail and then descended on the Barlow trail. I would recommend this to any family who would like a nice easy climb.
