Moose Watching

These wonderful creatures are a somewhat common sighting here in The White Mountains. For those who want to look for them on their own time, we've created a map for our guests indicating some of the most common places to spot them. If you'd rather go on a group bus tour and have fun while learning about these wonderful creatures, here are some options:

  • Pemi Valley Moose Tours (Lincoln - 25 minutes away):
  • Mt. Washington Valley Moose Tours (No. Conway - 55 minutes away):
  • Gorham Moose Tours (Gorham - 25 minutes away):

  • Alpine Adventures (Lincoln)

  • TreeTop Canopy Tour - A true treetop canopy tour and the first in New England. You will zip from tree to tree through the forest on 6 separate ziplines ranging from 80' - 900' long and including a 60' high x 75' long suspension bridge spanning "Barron Gorge." It also includes the famous Zip #7, a 35 mph optional free-fall.
  • Skyrider Zipline Tour - Treewalk Village offers spectacular views of the western Whites where you begin your descent. Ride dual ziplines, racing your friends, to Area 51, a plateau and scenic overlook. A gentle ground take-off sends you soaring over the sky line, on our longest zip, 1500' long and 200' above the ground, arriving at Hemlock Walk. After crossing 2 Burma bridges, get ready for the 1200 foot zipline at Montego Bay Express, named for our co-workers at our Jamaica location. The grand finale, "White Knuckle Pine," has an 80' drop and zip speeds of up to 50 mph.
  • Safari Tour - Buckle Up and Hold On because you're in for an off-road thrill like no other in New England. Scale to the top of Barron Mountain for awesome views in this low-speed roller coaster ride. With every season you encounter a different tour: Summer is great weather and an open air convertible top. Fall is spectacular foliage seen from above with occasional moose, deer & turkeys along the trail. Winter displays the extreme off-road capabilities of these 6-wheel drive Swiss army transport vehicles called Pinzgauers. Spring is mud season!!!

    Golf in the White Mountains

  • Bethlehem Country Club - This historic course was designed by Donald Ross in 1909. At a little under 6000 yards BCC is a relatively short layout when compared to some of today's 7200-yard monsters. However, the small "Rossian" greens with their challenging topography provided plenty of challenges for the novice and expert alike.

    BCC has hosted tournaments for the NHPGA, NHGHA and NHWGA. Proud of their ability to offer a championship venue for the top levels of competition in our region, BCC remains the type of playable golf course that the novice and purely recreational golfer can feel comfortable on. Outstanding playing conditions on a traditional, timeless design make for a memorable golf experience at Bethlehem Country Club.

  • Maplewood Country Club - Established in 1914, The Maplewood is located in the shadow of Mt. Washington in the beautiful White Mountain countryside. Rich with old New England charm, the Donald Ross designed course features century old stonewalls and majestic trees lining the naturally contoured fairways. Complete with a pro shop, golfers lounge and outdoor deck, chipping and putting green and a driving range, the professional staff will make you feel at home in the relaxed surroundings. In addition the course features a rare par six which is over 650 yards long, demanding par threes and beautiful water holes that are challenging for any golfer.
