Daniel Webster Trailhead

White Mountain National Forest, Near Gorham, New Hampshire

Daniel Webster Trailhead does not offer reservations through Recreation.gov. Please take a look at the area details below for more information about visiting this location. Enjoy your visit!


Note:  A temporary detour will be put in place as of September 26 due to the trailhead being located within the portion of the campground that will be closed for construction (see campground closure map).  The trail detour will begin from the administrative service area at the north end of the campground.  Parking is available in this area adjacent to a vault toilet.  From here, the trail will travel north past the gate house and then follow a logging road turning back south that parallels the campground to a point where it intersects the Daniel Webster Scout Trail and continues on its original course up Mt. Madison.  Hikers coming down from Mt. Madison will also need to follow this detour into the campground.  Signs will be in place to help hikers find their way.

Located within Dolly Copp Campground, this trailhead provides access to the Daniel Webster trail. A direct 4.1 mile climb to the Presidential Range Alpine Zone and the Summit of Mount Madison.
