In addition to perennial Waterville Valley favorites, hikers will sample some other great options in surrounding towns. Many trail surfaces may be encountered: packed snow/ice possibly with rocks and roots exposed or fresh snow on top with occasional obstacles. Trails may be rough, steep, and involve un-bridged stream crossings. Rattlesnake Mountain (Rumney): Enjoy the expansive views of the Asquamchumaukee River valley from the open summit of this small but mighty mountain and see the quaint village of Rumney from a new elevated perspective.
