The Livermore Trail Loop in the White Mountains of New Hampshire is a difficult 12.4 mile loop hike that spans the Livermore Road Trail and Irene's Path to form the loop. The trail begins on the Kangamangus Highway directly across from Lily Pond. It ascends 3 miles up to the tree covered Livermore Pass. After about 2 miles, hike past a small campsite, then past Irene's Path trail head. Livermore Trail then becomes a dirt road. Descend the trail, passing Norway Rapids. Then ascend Irene's Path about 2 miles, pass The Flume, then another 2 mile ascent back to Livermore Trail. It's about a 3 mile descent back to the highway.

This trail is best in the late spring or early autumn when there's no snow; however, this trail can be completed during the winter if you bring snowshoes and possibly crampons. The white mountains in the winter are not easy to hike in the multiple feet of snow-pack.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller (Founder & Admin). As the Founder, main contributor, and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my trips with over-detailed write-ups for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.

It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, site maintainance, and app development for iOS and Android . I simply ask that if you find MyHikes' trail guides helpful to please consider becoming a Supporter to help keep the site, iOS, and Android apps available to everyone.

Supporters unlock website and in-app perks with a one-time payment of $25 (you renew) 😎👍. Or you can simply make a Donation of your choice without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing - both quick and free 🎉

Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike!️
