The Terrifying 25: A List of Challenging White Mountain Trails

The Terrifying 25
The Terrifying 25

is a popular list of difficult White Mountains Hiking Trails compiled by Trish Herr, the author of  for her young daughters Alex and Sage. They enjoy hiking through boulder caves, rocky scrambles, and traversing avalanche slides, which are well represented by this list.

The rules for hiking this list are pretty simple. You need to hike 20 trails on the Required list and 5 more trails from the Electives List. It just so happens that I’ve hiked all of them, but you don’t have to go to such extremes if you don’t want to. There is also a patch awarded to people who finish this list, which is much coveted by hard core White Mountain hikers.

  1. As someone who doesn’t like heights, I’ve already seen some of those trails and added them to my “do not hike” list. Precipice trail in Acadia is about as scary as I ever want to do.
