NH Fish & Game and the White Mountain National Forest request that you follow your state's orders to stay at home and recreate near your home. 

If you have to drive for your recreation – do it another time.

The mountains will always be there…

Being engaged with the outdoors is important for everyone’s physical and mental well-being. However, it is imperative that those enjoying New Hampshire’s natural resources exercise a high degree of caution. Unsafe and irresponsible behavior in challenging and ever-changing spring conditions puts first responders at extreme risk of injury and exposure to COVID-19—social distancing does not apply in search and rescue situations.
