Mt. Chocorua - Hard Section "Views"

Champney Falls Trail
7.6 miles round-trip
2,250 feet of elevation gain 

This is one way to reach the summit -- for the list, the hiker may choose whichever trail they like.

After leaving the parking area, turn right at a junction and follow an old logging road until you get to Champney Brook. Then, go right on Champney Falls Trail and keep following the path. After 1.4 miles, swing left on the Champney Falls loop path to see the base of Champney Falls and Pitcher Falls. Continue following the loop trail until it rejoins Champney Falls Trail. Continue hiking until you reach the intersection with Piper Trail, at which point you should follow Piper Trail for 0.6 miles to arrive at the summit of Chocorua.

I obtained the information I include above from the White Mountain Guide, written by Steven Smith. I recommend purchasing this book and using it to navigate on hikes.

Check out some pictures from Jillian Harris who hiked Chocorua with her daughters on July 6th, 2017.
