Dogs (leashed)

The Mount Chocorua via Piper Trail at the White Mountain National Forest in Albany, New Hampshire is a difficult 8.1-mile out-and-back hike that takes you up the southern side of Mount Chocorua to the summit.

The first few miles are a fairly easy grade on a well maintained and easy to follow trail. The last 2-miles or so travel up rocky stairways and large, flat stone slopes. The trail gets trickier to follow as you get closer to the top, but keep your eyes out for the yellow blazes and you'll do fine.

Fee: The fee to park at the trailhead is $5, cash only.

Pets: Leashed dogs are allowed.

Elevation Gain: Over 2,900-feet. There were lots of kids and families at the summit, but this trail won't be for everyone. Bring plenty of water and some food to enjoy at the top. The 360 views will be plenty worth it.

Buggy: There were a good amount of bugs on the trail at the lower parts, so bug spray is highly recommended.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
