White Mountains Resources

This photography resource page is mainly focused on the New Hampshire White Mountains. ScenicNH Photography uses the below links for planning adventures, and for doing historical research on New Hampshire. With the exception of the hiking forums and trail conditions sites, which ScenicNH Photography is not involved with because of both business and personal beliefs, we refer to these sites regularly.


There are many excellent websites focused on the White Mountains, but we only use credible sources when doing research. Some websites are great resources while others have limited use. Historical sites provide invaluable information, and conservation sites promote responsible land stewardship. On the other hand, some of the trail conditions sites are padded with dozens of outdated and unverified anonymous trail reports which makes the information unusable for proper research.
