Location mapSummary
Mt. Garfield, named after President James Garfield, is part of the New Hampshire 4,000 footer club. The summit once featured a small fire tower - the foundation of which still remains. Located between the Franconia Ridge and the Twins, there are views from the top in all directions.

Due to the seasonal closure of Gale River Road, Mt. Garfield becomes more difficult to access in winter.
