After the Franconia and Twin Ranges, the third great north-south running range in the Franconia Region is the Willey Range, forming the region's eastern boundary. Mount Tom (4051'), Mount Field (4320', named after Darby Field, first climber of Mount Washington in 1642), and Mount Willey (4255') are the principal summits, but perhaps more interesting are two lower spurs to the east that help form the western wall of long, deep Crawford Notch. Mount Avalon (3440') and especially Mount Willard (2865') provide incredible views down the Notch, its parallel green walls running far away off to the
south forming one of the best views in the White Mountains.
To the west, off towards the Twin Range, trailless Whitewall Mountain (3405') and its (not surprisingly) white slide-scarred walls provide one side of deep and scenic Zealand Notch.
