At the western end of the Kancamagus Highway in White Mountain National Forest, Loon Mountain Resort and ski resort is busy with outdoors enthusiasts both winter and summer.



Two miles east of Lincoln NH along the Kancamagus Highway (map) brings you to Loon Mountain Resort, a modern four-season resort that was founded as a ski resort but now also flourishes with outdoor mountain activities in the warmer months.

Gondola Skyride

Loon's skiers' gondola (four-passenger cablecar) operates in summer and autumn as well as winter, taking visitors on the 7100-foot (2164-meter) trip to the summit, 1850 feet (564 meters) above the base.

On Loon Peak, narrow Glacial Caves have been furnished with boardwalks and stairways so you can explore them. Squeezing through narrow gaps and crawling through tunnels is part of the fun.

Aerial Forest Adventure Park

Ziplines, forest trapeze, log bridges, a logjam maze, climbing wall, bungee spider web, and for the little kids a bouncy house and other games keep everyone in the family happy on fine summer days.
