Hiking Trails Near Ragged Mountain

Hiking Trails Near Ragged Mountain - Stay Outdoors in All Four Seasons

Ragged Mountain is known for its 1,250 feet of vertical drop, great skiing, Terrain Park, wedding venue, and beautiful lodging. What is often overlooked are the various and gorgeous hikes in close proximity. This article is meant to point out some of the best hikes to help you enjoy the Ragged Mountain area even more.

 

Views of Ragged Mountain from Mount Cardigan


Trails at Ragged Mountain

Ragged Mountain itself is a gorgeous, moderately difficult hike with views of nearby Newfound Lake, Mount Cardigan, Mount Moosilaukee, and other New Hampshire peaks. Hikers can choose to ascend Ragged Mountain, Ragged Mountain West Peak, and Balanced Rock (correctly named), from Ragged Mountain Ski Area via the skiing trails, the New Canada Road Trailhead, or the Proctor Academy Trailhead.

The trails outside the ski slopes are a part of the Sunapee Ragged Kearsarge Greenway trail network that is a 75 mile loop trail system that connects summits, state parks, and state forests in central New Hampshire.

 

Nearby Mountains

Ragged is located only an hour south of Franconia Notch where there is access to Franconia Ridge, and many other NH 4,000 footers, the below list of hikes are all within a 30 minute drive, and have excellent views.

   

Mount Cardigan

Mount Cardigan Views

 

Cardigan is a stunning and relatively quick hike suitable for active families. With a 3 mile round trip, it is doable in only a few hours, and delivers incredible views at the summit. Rising 3,155 feet above sea level, Cardigan is a frequently trafficked family hike.

 

The most common route up is via the West Ridge Trail located at the end of Cardigan Mountain road. The trail features a lot of exposed steep granite near the summit and can be slippery when wet or icy.

   

Mount Kearsarge

The trailhead to mount Kearsarge, a 2,937 foot mountain, is located less than 30 minutes away from Ragged Mountain. Kearsarge is located within two state parks, Winslow State park, and Rollins State Park. This gives hikers and families a ton of opportunities for outdoor activities beyond summiting Kearsarge.

The summit of Kearsarge features a fire tower that enables visitors to see as far south as Boston on a clear day, and also see many more mountains to the north.

Parking is located at the Winslow State Park Picnic area where there are two options to hike to the summit, the Barlow Trail, and the Winslow Trail. Each are moderate options, and are often both done (one up, one down). The Winslow Trail is 1.1 miles to the summit, and the Barlow Trail is 1.7 miles to the summit.

Hikers can also choose to hike up the other side of Kearsarge from Rollins State Park (a .5 mile hike). However, this is a slightly longer drive from Ragged Mountain.

 

Danbury Bog Wildlife Management Area

Danbury Bog Wildlife Management Area is located just a short 10 minute drive from Ragged, and is a fantastic family picnic, birdwatching, canoeing, and short hiking area. If you like canoeing, kayaking, birds, frogs, turtles, and other pond wildlife, this is a great spot to visit.

 

Lake Sunapee

Lake Sunapee may not be the best hiking spot, but for those that love beautiful lakes and boating, it is great to know that the lake is only a short 30 minute drive from Ragged Mountain. Looking for a beach day? Lake Sunapee State Park is only about 40 minutes away from Ragged.

 

The Rest of New Hampshire

This is by no means a complete list of all of the great outdoor places to visit within a short drive of Ragged Mountain. Not only is there far more within 30 minutes, but if you are willing to drive an hour to an hour and a half, New Hampshire has some absolutely incredible short and easy, as well as long and strenuous hikes for all ability levels.

There is a world...


There is a world that only alpine skiers and riders know...

From being on the first chair up the mountain in the morning to the spectacular views from the summit to making first tracks on freshly fallen snow, there is a world that only alpine skiers and riders know.

From seeing fresh snow glistening in the morning sun on the spruce and balsam trees alongside the ski trails as you link turns, there is a world that only alpine skiers and riders know. 

From sharing the joy and thrills of skiing and riding with your family and best friends where everyone is a participant and no one is a spectator, there is a bond that only alpine skiers and riders know and share. 

From the summit of beautiful Ragged Mountain looking north at the snow covered peaks of Mount Cardigan, Mount Lafayette and Mount Washington, there is a view that only Ragged Mountain skiers and riders know and love.

We look forward to sharing our special world at Ragged Mountain with you this March.

With a full season of snowmaking for a base and bountiful natural snow for a top coat, this is an amazingly good ski season. Don't miss the best skiing of the season this March at beautiful Ragged Mountain --- we want to share our world with you. Come on up and get Ragged!

Mother Nature continues to bless Ragged Mountain with new snow, and the weather forecast for today and Saturday is looking just about perfect. 

Today, Friday, February 22 should have sunny skies and temps getting into the low 30s. With 3" of fresh snow on Wednesday night, conditions are outstanding all across the mountain. For Saturday, February 23, another beautiful day is queued up with partly sunny skies and temps rising into the low 30s again. It just doesn't get any better than this!  You can count on our groomers laying down the corduroy for you to rip up.

In the wee hours of Sunday morning, we looking for another 3" to 5" of snow before possibly turning to a winter mix before noon. Lifts open at 8:30am so there is time to enjoy the new freshies before a possible changeover. This new snow is setting up next week for more great skiing and riding at Ragged.

For the weekend, we'll be skiing and riding on 52 trails and glades served by 5 lifts including the Ragged 6-passenger Express and the Spear Mountain Quad going to our twin summits. We have skiing and riding for all ability levels with dedicated novice terrain at the Barnyard Triple and two moving Carpets.

Back To Winter!

After the quick thaw that Mother Nature threw our way, we're happy to be staring at a forecast for the coming week that looks a lot more like winter! Headed into the weekend, we're looking forward to sunny skies with temperatures in the upper 20's to mid 30's. Talk about a difference from the 50 degree day we had on Thursday!

With the return to cold temperatures, anyone who visited us today may have noticed some snowmakers scurrying around to get Exhibition set back up for snowmaking operations. Following the warm weather, they're going to be working hard to help build up some more of those piles. Our groomers will be working hard too, pushing around the new snow and laying down that beautiful corduroy that we all love so much. Even with those warm temps and that clear precipitation, our surface is skiing as good as ever!

We're also amped about all the hard work that the Terrain Park Crew has been putting in over on Wild Side and Wild Ride. The top half of the terrain park is scheduled to open up tomorrow with three jumps and a hip. The team has certainly outdone themselves over there this year, and we're looking forward to seeing you all get sendy in the park. Be sure to mention @ragged_parks on Instagram, and as always, we'll see you on the slopes!

We're keeping a close eye on another storm system that's forecast to bring some more snow early next week. The extended forecast beyond next week looks promising too, so be sure to keep tuned here for your latest updates on snowfall totals and trail openings at Ragged Mountain!

If you're still on vacation, be sure to take advantage of the week ahead, as temperatures are expected to be favorable and there's even a chance we could see a few flurries during the day tomorrow. We know you college students are likely still on break for another couple of weeks, so be sure to take advantage of our College Cut deal. For just $39 dollars, you can come shred with us, Sunday through Friday! Be sure you bring your current student ID with you when you come visit.

The temperatures should be in the mid 20's which is perfect conditions for our snowmakers to get set and start back up. A light breeze is anticipated throughout the day today which will only make it easier for our snowguns to blanket the hill. Keep your eyes peeled for snowmakers on Upper Exhibition, Town Meeting, and Birches, and be sure to say thank you when you do!

Hey Mother Nature... Wrong Four Letter Word

*UPDATE*

Due to some icing and high winds, both summit lifts will remain closed today. We will be running the Barnyard Triple and both Carpets.

Well, Mother Nature seems to be up to some of her old tricks and has decided to throw us a curve ball today bringing us the wrong four letter word. However, looking ahead just a few days and temps return to normal levels allowing us to crank up the snowmaking guns once again.

We will be set up for normal operations this morning and plan to remain that way. We will make updates throughout the day as conditions may change.

Snowmaking Has Resumed!

*UPDATE*

Both the Spear Quad and Ragged Mountain Express lifts are on wind hold. If you are planning to ski or ride today we are happy to offer a lower mountain ticket for $20, which provides access to the Barnyard Triple and both Carpets.


Snowmaking resumed last night across Ragged Peak, with the intent to fill in a few more trails to help connect some of the dots, like Sunnyside, Upper Crew Cut, and Pines. At the same time the team is looking to add a bit more coverage to both Newfound Ridge and Village Green. They’ll be working hard once again this week, so if you see a Snowmaker make sure to thank them!

2 Inches To Help Refresh!

A nice little refresh was granted to us last night by Mother Nature, who dropped a new 2” of snow across Ragged. The temps will also drop tonight allowing Snowmaking to pick back up and spread some more across the lower portions of Ragged. The plan right now is to do some resurface work on Ragged Peak providing a bit more coverage to Newfound and Village Green. They will also be working to connect the dots by finishing off Lower Chutte, and adding Pines, Sunnyside, and Upper Crew Cut. This, along with pushing out Showboat and Showoff, will certainly make for another great weekend of skiing ahead of us!

The Groomers Are Getting Things Ready

*UPDATE* Both Upper Ridge and Headwall will be open today!

The past 24hrs have seen a shift from snowmaking to grooming on Upper Ridge, Lower Ridge, Barnyard and Headwall. The groomers has been working their blades and will be dropping the tillers soon to get those trails open for some fresh turns on Saturday morning!

In the meantime, snowmaking is planning their next move to Spear Peak as temps stay favorable into next week. We’ll keep updating as the team works their magic!

For conditions right now, the snow is fast and grippy. Perfect for early season leg conditioning. Set those edges and ride them through to your next turn. Get your balance points right and be ready for the next big storm!

Speaking of edges… Just a friendly reminder that if your gear needs some love, go talk to Eddie or Kyle in the Ragged Edge Tuning and Repair shop. They can get your board or skis back in shape so you can fully enjoy this amazing start to the season. But, they can also do some pretty amazing repairs, so if you have that unfortunate stop in the woods they can help. Go stop in and say hi, they’re right down in the rental department.

WOW!!! What a few days of cold means here at Ragged is tons of great production from the Snowmaking team. They’ve been at it around the clock since Monday night and the piles are really starting to build across Ragged Peak and in the Barnyard area.

This team is a group of unsung early season heroes. If you see one, throw them a thank you, give them a high five, and let them know how much their hard work means to you.

This weekend it looks like we will be skiing and riding on Upper Ridge, Headwall, Lower Chute, and Barnyard because of this team’s hard work.

We'll see you on the mountain!

Snowmaking is Cranking!

Snowmaking has been driving hard the past couple of nights with these cold temps and production is looking good! If you’re out skiing or riding and see one of the snowmakers, stop and say thanks!

The cold temps are helping us see through to the goal of adding more terrain this weekend. We hope to add Lower Ridge, Upper Ridge, Headwall, and Barnyard this weekend, providing more terrain for all guests!

As a friendly reminder, please remember that if you purchased a season pass and have yet to pick it up, pick up is now in the new Guest Service’s building. It’s the grey building in between the Meeting House and Elmwood Lodges. You will see a big orange awning that says Guest Services on it! Please also remember that there is a one-time $5 RFID card fee. Learn more about RFID HERE.

We'll see you on the mountain!

Cold Temps Are Back

And that means that the snowmakers are out there earning their keep! With last nights shift in temperature the snowmaking system roared back to life with a focus to increase man-made coverage by this weekend. Currently the goal is to see Lower Ridge, Upper Ridge, Headwall, and Barnyard open providing more terrain for all guests!

This new cold front came with a price though as the warm temps melted some of our natural snow pack. Patrol has closed all natural terrain due to the freeze thaw cycle it saw in the past 24 hours.

If you were joined us this past weekend, we hope you made your way into the Stone Hearth Bar were we've increased some of our great food and beer offerings. If not, go grab lunch and try one of the tasty flat breads in Stone Hearth. Try the Snowmaker (in honor of the cold temps and hard work being done!) and pair it with a Ragged Red from the Flying Goose Brewery... So Good!

We'll see you on the mountain!
