We will be hiking three mountains with amazing views in the Pliny Range of the White Mountains in New Hampshire. We hike the Starr King trail to Mount Starr King is a 3,907 foot mountain and is on the 52 with a View hiking list. Mount Waumbek is just 1 more mile past the summit of Starr King, which is on the 4,000 footers hiking list, amongst others. The Kilkenny Ridge Trail will lead us to South Weeks Mountain an under appreciated pearl in the whites. This is an in and back trail with a distance of 10.7 miles and an elevation of 3500 ft. Pleas have a look at the MAP.


We will start on Starr King Trail Head and the elevation begins as a steady, gentle incline and never gets very steep. The best views are from Starr King to the south overlooking a vast plain and the entire Presidential Range. The summit of Waumbek is wooded, but the walk over from Starr King is beautiful. Hopefully we will be lucky to see Canada Jays that live near the Starr King summit.
