Sandwich Range

Sandwich Range

The Sandwich Range is located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire in the United States, north of the Lakes Region and south of the Presidential Range. Although the range is not outstanding for its elevation, it is very rugged and has excellent views of the surrounding lakes, mountains, and forests. The Sandwich Range extends east-west about 30 miles from Conway, New Hampshire on the Saco River to Campton on the Pemigewasset River. The Kancamagus Highway runs along the north side of the mountains, from Conway to North Woodstock. The highest peak in the range is Mount Tripyramid (elevation 4,170 feet).

The east part of the range drains by various streams into the Saco River and thence into the Atlantic Ocean at Saco, Maine. The west part drains into the East Branch Pemigewasset River and Mad River, thence into the Pemigewasset, Merrimack and into the sea at Newburyport, Massachusetts.


From northeast to southwest, the range's summits include:
Mount Chocorua (1,065 m / 3,490 ft)
Mount Paugus (975 m / 3,198 ft)
