With Halloween around the corner, what better way to get into the mood than a spooky hike seething in mystery and legend?
Here’s our top picks, ranging from hauntingly beautiful to downright scary.
1. Mount Chocorua, Albany
Legend has it that a local Indian Chief, Chocorua, believed that a settler named Campbell was responsible for the death of his son. In vengeance, Chocorua killed the man’s entire family and allegedly cursed all white settles with his dying breath. This story doesn’t seem to scare off many people, as Mt. Chocorua is one of the most climbed and photographed mountains in the White mountains of New Hampshire.
