Carroll County is approximately 70 miles long, 30 miles wide and contains about 569,800 acres. One quarter of the county is within the White Mountain National Forest. It ranks second for New Hampshire counties in the number of its lakes.

The White Mountains are a mountain range covering about a quarter of the state of New Hampshire and a small portion of western Maine in the United States. They are part of the northern Appalachian Mountains and the most rugged mountains in New England. Most of the area is public land, including the White Mountain National Forest and a number of state parks. Its most famous mountain is 6,288-foot Mount Washington, which is the highest peak in the Northeastern U.S. and which held the record for fastest surface wind gust (231 miles per hour in 1934) in the world for 76 years. Mount Washington is part of a line of summits, the Presidential Range, that are named after U.S. presidents and other prominent Americans.

The White Mountains also include the Franconia Range, Sandwich Range, Carter-Moriah Range and Kinsman Range in New Hampshire, and the Mahoosuc Range straddling the border between it and Maine. In all, there are 48 peaks over 4,000 feet, known as the Four-thousand footers. The Whites are also known for a system of alpine huts for hikers operated by the Appalachian Mountain Club. The Appalachian Trail crosses the area from southwest to northeast.

With Mt. Washington to the north and Lake Winnipesaukee to the south, the county's major industries are tourism and recreation. The two largest of its 18 towns, Conway and Wolfeboro, stand out as popular destinations for tourists and outdoor enthusiasts. Several ski areas, including Cranmore Mountain, Attitash, King Pine, and Black Mountain, are located here.

Hiking, climbing, cycling and skiing are enjoyed both by energetic locals and by the many visitors who drive up from Boston and New York. The major destinations are Lake Winnipesaukee in Belknap County, and Conway, Lincoln and Franconia in the mountains further north. Mount Washington is in Coos County. The lakes, islands and snowcapped peaks themselves are spectacular. And some say that the area around Cheshire County and Keene, NH is the "Currier and Ives" America has come to love.
