Stay safe

Crime is not an issue in the White Mountains, it's virtually non existent. However, one should be aware of basic wilderness survival skills when outdoors due to the harsh nature of the area's climate and lack of civilization. Also, moose and deer on roads can cause accidents, with moose accidents more serious than the latter.
