Cross two 4k footers of your list by exploring Mount Whiteface and Passaconway. This loop will be 11.4 miles and book time is 9 hours with 4,000 ft of elevation gain. We will take the Dicey's Mill Trail up to Whiteface summit then Rollins Trail to Passaconway summit and back down Dicey's Mill Trail towards the trailhead. The summits are wooded, but there are several viewpoints along the way that offer great views of the surrounding mountains.
