Disclaimer: The club and its members take no responsibility and will not be held responsible for any injuries or accidents that may occur during club events. Outdoor sports are inherently dangerous and accidents will happen. By joining the club or participating in any events posted on the GayOutdoors web page you are taking responsibility for your own safety and well-being. Anyone with an internet connection can post a trip on the GayOutdoors web site. It is your responsibility to determine if this person has the experience and competence to lead the trip. GayOutdoors does not certify or confirm the qualifications of any of its members to lead or participate in trips.
Be Prepared: Please be prepared to be self-sufficient. Have your own provisions such as first aid kit, food, water, extra clothing for unplanned weather, etc. Have your EMERGENCY CONTACT SHEET completed and in your backpack; it may save your life, and help reach someone who greatly cares!
Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability. Please know that because this is a group activity, it's hard to accommodate everyone's pace perfectly. Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.

Please join me for this relatively short (2.1 miles, 4.2 RT) but steady climb (1700') to the summit of Mt Israel @ 2620'.  Beautiful views south along the way of Lakes Squam and Winnipesaukee and, from the top, mountians to the west and north to Mt Chocorua.  Please bring a packed lunch and plenty of water.  We should be back at the vehicles by 3PM.  Possibility of returning to my cottage on Ossipee Lake for a swim and dinner.

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

From Route 25 in Moutonboro, take Route 109N through Sandwich to Center Sandwich where it merges with Route 113W coming from the right.  Continue straight ahead (don't bear left to follow Route 113), following the signs pointing to Sandwich Notch and Mead Base.  After the pavement ends, drive another mile to a fork in the dirt road.  Take the right, following the sign for MEAD CONSERVATION STATION (don't bear left for Sandwich Notch).  Drive all the way in and turn right as directed by the NFS sign into the parking lot.  Anyone wishing to carpool from Rtes 25E & 16 In Center Ossipee, please let me know and we'll make arrangements.
