Featured photo of Bondcliff

This is one of the NH 48 four thousand footers and is a classic hike. The nearest road is nearly 10 miles from the summit making this a long dayhike. The summit itself is dramatic and known as one of the best viewing platforms in the White Mountains. The AT runs just North along the Twinway giving easy access from there. Its a small mountain but certainly worthwhile from any direction.

    One of my favorites, spectacular vistas from the summit area. Also one of the longest hikes from the road to bag a peak. Will have to attempt in winter one of these days.

    All the Bonds (plus Guyot and South Twin) are wonderful peaks, my favorites in the Whites. I have done many backpacking trips spending a night at Guyot Campsite, as well as one day trips, both round...

    This summit offers,(IMO)the best views in the Whites, thanks to it's remoteness and position near the center of the range. Not a good summit to sprain an ankle on though... Bondcliff is 9 miles from...
