JEFFERSON DOME – This segment of the trail boasts several dramatic summits, cliff ledges, and the superlative 6,000-acre Pondicherry Wildlife Refuge, one of the more critical wildlife habitats in New England. The refuge is a home to or way station for over 200 species of birds. Views from Mt. Martha and Owls Head ledges are among the finest White Mountains, and the view across Cherry Pond in the wildlife refuge is the most dramatic of the Presidential Range that can be had.
