Webster-Jackson Trail cuts through a corner parcel of Crawford Notch State Park.

Beginning just south of Saco Lake, Webster Jackson Trail soon offers an interesting and pleasant spur trail to Elephant Head. The spur gets its name from the gray granite and white quartz veins that give the appearance of an elephant's head. There are also great views from this short trail. The main trail heads into state park property paralleling US 302 for about 1 mile before splitting. By taking the trail left you'll travel out of state land an into the Presidential Range to intersect with Webster Cliff Trail and ridges of Mt. Jackson. Head right (south) to reach Mt. Webster and Mount Jackson Branch Trail. Taking it right (north), you'll reach Webster Jackson Trail at the split which will take you back to Saco Lake and US 302. This 6.5 mile trail is fairly easy to negotiate with many reward overlooks.

Directions: From Fabyan, NH, Travel about 3 miles south on US 302 to reach the AMC Information Center. This trail begins just south of the Information Center on the east side of US 302 below Saco Lake.
