Trails

Avalon Trail, Willey Range Trail – 5.8 Miles Round Trip – 2,550 feet elevation gain

This trailhead is located in Crawford Notch at the train station directly across from Saco Lake. The trail begins with gradual elevation gain, crosses a couple rivers, and gets slightly more difficult once passing the junction of the Mount Avalon Trail.

Hiking Mount Tom and Field

Many people want to hike both Mount Tom and Field in a loop. Mount Avalon is also included in this loop, and is worth the 100 yard detour.

Total Mileage: 7.8 miles

Alternate Routes

Ethan Pond Trail, Willey Range Trail – 8.2 Miles – 3,500 feet elevation gain

This trail would summit Mount Willey as well, but would skip out on Mount Avalon.
