Comments
Comments: The Carter Ledge Trail is amazing but if you are nervous hiking ledges bring a friend who can help you get through it, or choose the less exciting but very pretty trail on the western side of Mt. Chocorua, Champney Falls instead. I would consider this a moderate level hike with killer views.
