Carter Dome (4,832'), in the Carter-Moriah Range, offers dramatic, close-up views of Mount Washington and the Presidential Range from its northeastern shoulder, Mount Hight.

Suggested Routes

Strenuous: Hikers find a strenuous, yet rewarding route by taking the Nineteen-Mile Brook Trail to the Carter Dome Trail, which connects to the Carter-Moriah Trail via Zeta Pass. Carter Dome’s summit is located 1.4 miles south of Zeta Pass on the Carter-Moriah Trail. The Rampart, a boulder field, and the Carter Lakes are located nearby for exploration.

Trip Planning

The AMC’s self-service Carter Notch Hut is located at 3288 ft. at the junction of the Carter-Moriah and Nineteen-Mile Brook Trails (4.7 miles south of the Middle Carter summit). The hut is open year-round.
