Chocorua from Chocorua Lake

     Mount Chocorua (pronounced "Cho-koo'-ra") is one of the most heavily hiked mountains in the Whites and for good reason.  This very beautiful and very moderate hike leads to an open, rocky, cone summit with incredible views.  Hikers break out of the trees to play on smooth rock ledges before reaching the summit.  There are fine northerly views of the southern Presidentials including Mt. Washington.  To the west lies the Sandwich Range with the likes of Four Thousand Footer Mt. Passaconaway (4,043 ft.).  If you don't mind the crowds attracted to this popular peak, you'll be rewarded with a pleasant hike and great views.
