If your youngster is not yet game for the Presidential Range, the tree-shrouded Mount Willard Trail delivers big rewards after a mile-and-a-half of hiking. A drop-away view of Crawford Notch provides a long glimpse of what the White Mountains offer, and plenty of terrain to set sights for another day. The trail gains 900 feet in elevation. Plan on three hours for a leisurely round trip.
