Meister Hut Summer

Meister Hut

Located at the summit, the historic Meister Hut is the perfect spot to kick back and relax on the deck or make it a mountaintop picnic. The restaurant is open 10:30am–3:30pm and offers a lunch menu, grab and go snacks and local craft beer.

Hiking at the Summit

Starting at the Meister Hut is a ½-mile loop around the summit and the two-mile Black Cap Connector trail. Both great hiking options for families, they offer stunning, 360-degree views of Mt. Washington Valley, Presidential Mountain Range, Black Cap Mountain and the Moats. Please hike at your own risk, stay on designated paths, carry in/carry out and don’t feed the animals.
