This trip is designed to increase access to outdoor adventures by providing transportation, accommodations, and the skillsets necessary to have a safe, fun experience at an affordable price. Mount Cardigan sits at the southern edge of the White Mountains in New Hampshire and, while its peak is not as tall as other mountains in the range, its treeless granite summit displays stunning views of forests and lakes spanning hundreds of miles. It is the perfect place for folks looking to immerse themselves in the stillness of New England's wilderness for the first time.
