Mount Chocorua is a 3,490 ft mountain in New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest. It is the Sandwich Range’s easternmost peak. Despite not being a 4,000-footer, the peak provides spectacular views of the surrounding lakes, mountains, and woods. Because it is at the extremity of the range, its bald summit can be seen from practically every direction and identifiable from numerous locations throughout central and western New Hampshire and Maine. It has been the subject of a number of historic paintings and is very popular for photographers. There are multiple hiking trails that lead up the mountain. To the south, scenic Chocorua Lake can be seen.
