No camping or fires are permitted on Dartmouth land. Considered by some to have one of the most exspasive views in all of the Appalachaians. The summit views North and East are impressive, encompassing virtualy all of the high peaks in the White Mountains. To the West Camel's Hump and the Green Mountains of Vermont can be seen far across the Connecticut River Valley. The mountains name and pronunciation have changed many times.
