With an extensive trail network
at its front door, waterfalls, lakes, and more, the Highland Center is the perfect base for your outdoor adventures.

Play in a waterfall
Arethusa, Ripley and others. Hikers big and small are drawn to the beauty of Crawford Notch’s waterfalls in all seasons.
Travel the trail
Hike the Crawford Path, the oldest, continually maintained hiking trail in the nation, on your trek to summit a 4,000-foot peak or two. Or join one of our guided Lodge-to-Hut Adventures
and hike this and other trails with a trusted AMC guide.
Ski a groomed trail network
The 100 kilometers of Bretton Woods’ cross-country ski trails extend to our back door. Ski over, enjoy a glorious day on the trails, and ski back for dinner. Your car won’t miss you.
Hang out on our lawn
Take in the wildflowers in late June as you sip your beer on the patio. Or play with your kids on the new, Big Mountain Playscape, with all the features of a mountain setting on kid-friendly scale.
