The resort will be open weekends only through June 17, with daily operations beginning Monday, June 18.
SUMMER & FALL ADVENTURES
With its range of exciting activities, Loon is the perfect place to visit this summer. For high-altitude adventure, ride New Hampshire’s longest scenic Gondola Skyride to the summit of Loon Peak, where visitors can climb an observation tower to enjoy spectacular views of the White Mountains, have lunch at the Summit Café, take a self-guided hike, and explore cool summit glacial caves.
Visitors looking for high adventure can zipline across the roaring Pemigewasset River, scale an outdoor climbing wall, or rent a mountain bike or e-bike to explore area paths and trails. Young adventure-seekers will flip over bungee trampolines and Bunyan’s Bouncin’ Backyard, a kid-friendly setup featuring a bounce house and inflatable games. Families can also tackle the giant LogJam Maze, where they can work together to negotiate twists, turns, and dead ends as they race against the clock.
