Board the White Mountain Express Gondola to Loon Peak Summit for another world of adventure, including Herbert's Observation Tower and Boardwalk.

Located to the right of the Gondola and beside the Summit Cafe, both the Boardwalk and Herbert's Observation tower offer breathtaking views throughout all four seasons.


Herbert's Oberservation Tower

Soar to the summit of Loon Peak, and climb 3 stories of stairs to reach top of the Observation Tower. From there you can see for miles in every direction, stretching from Mount Moosilauke to Mount Washington.

Boardwalk

Walk along the flat, easily accessible wooden boardwalk and take in the fresh air and enjoy the sounds of nature. As you walk the winding path amongst the trees, you can see the mountains stretching out before you.


  • Access to the Observation Tower and Boardwalk is included with a Gondola Skyride ticket.

  • Daily closure time follows Resort Hours. Be sure to check the Resort Hours page and allow time to enjoy the Loon Peak views and return to the Gondola before the last cabin departs the summit each day. 

  • Athletic footwear is recommended.
