The White Mountains east of the Presidentials include the high and well-known Carter Range and its six official four-thousand footers. East of the Carter Range, running almost along the New Hampshire-Maine state line, lies the Baldface-Royce Range and its high point, East Royce Mountain (3070'), a low crest that nevertheless is wide open due to forest fires in the past. A hike along the summits here is among the most rewarding of any in New England that does not reach the magic 4000 foot level.

The White Mountain National Forest extends considerably into Maine east of the Baldface-Royce range to include the Speckled Mountains.
