Rules to play Hiking
We want you to be safe on the trails! The N.H. Fish and Game Department and the White Mountain National Forest are partners in a mountain safety education program called hikeSafe to help get the word out on what hikers need to know.
As part of this program, the Hiker Responsibility Code is posted on hikeSafe signs at all major trailheads in New Hampshire. The code applies to all hikers, from beginners on a short hike to experienced outdoor enthusiasts embarking on an expedition. Please practice the elements of the code and share the code with fellow trekkers. This will help increase responsibility and reduce the need for Search and Rescue efforts.
