Avery Peak (right) as seen from Sugarloaf Mountain
Bigelow Mountain's Avery Peak, part of the New England 4,000 Footer list, features views in all directions from its rocky summit. The peak is named after Myron Haliburton Avery, who was an important figure in the development of the Appalachian Trail.
A fire observation building stood adjacent the summit for over a century. Closed for decades, the building burned on April 15, 2011.
Due to the closure of Stratton Brook Pond Road and East Flagstaff Road, Avery Peak becomes harder to access in winter.
