Describe this location
Kearsarge North is in Intervale, NH, just outside of Conway area. The mountain has fantastic views in all directions, and is just a short distance from Mt. Washington. There is an enclosed fire tower at the summit, which is open to visitors. It's a great place to take in the views while avoiding the cold!
