The White Mountains are a mountain range in New Hampshire, extending slightly into Maine. They are part of the Appalachian Mountains, and are a popular tourist destination. Most of the mountain range is within either state parks or the White Mountain National Forest.

The most famous peak in the White Mountains is Mount Washington, the highest mountain in the northeast United States at 6,288 ft (1,917 m) above sea level. The highest sustained wind speed ever recorded was measured at the summit of Mount Washington.
