    Dangerous as in the weather that is. Basically, the White Mtn range has a high alpine climate which can be dangerous if you are unprepared.

    Even if you are prepared, things can go wrong. People die on the mountains here! Sometimes, by accident, but more often it's the hikers' fault. Be smart and check the weather conditions, trail conditions, and lots of helpful hints on preparing for a hike there.

    If you're a novice, I suggest hikes to huts like Zealand Falls Hut and Lonesome Lake Hut which are very straight forward.
