The 4,052-foot Mount Jackson in the southern Presidential Range is popular peak any time of year. But in the winter its special qualities seem to shine more. Because of its popularity, the 2.6-mile trail is soon packed down after a snow storm.

From its trail head on the east side of Route 302 just beyond the Gateway or height-of-land in Crawford Notch, it winds up through a beautiful virgin hemlock/fir forest.
