“The Welsh-Dickey is one the most popular hikes in White Mountain National Forest, and for good reason. The challenging route offers beautiful views of Waterville Valley, and the surrounding area. You’ll start at the Welsh-Dickey Trailhead off Orris Road. There is a $5 parking fee at the trailhead. This route can be done in either direction, but an overwhelming majority of people choose the counter-clockwise route on this page. The first section gradually climbs, with some short steep sections over slabs. You’ll reach Welch Mountain first. Continue northward and you’ll eventually reach Dickey Mountain. After taking in the views, the trail veers westward, and there is a gradual decline back down to the parking area. As with all the trails in the area, this hike is entirely different during winter. If you’re visiting from November - May, you’ll likely need traction devices, hiking poles, and experience with winter hiking.”
