Iron Mountain

Boasting incredible views on a family-friendly hike, Iron Mountain has seen year after year of heavy use and is now in critical need of maintenance.




The Work

The 1/4 mile at the top of Iron Mountain is significantly eroded and in need of being relocated.  Work is expected to take 6-8 weeks to complete

Background & History

An extremely popular trail in the White Mountain National Forest, Iron Mountain boasts incredible views on a family-friendly hike. It is also a historical site that is home to the remains of a 19th century iron mine with slag heaps of magnetite, a deep pit, and a tunnel. Broken and eroded rock at the peak of the mountain and the amount of use the trail sees each year has led to the White Mountain National Forest naming Iron Mountain as a critical trail maintenance need.
