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.

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.
Summary

OK, I know this is a frequently listed hike but I haven't been to this summit this year so please join me if you can.  We'll ascend via the Brook Trail 3.5 mi (3 hrs) to the peak;  great ledge views along the way.  Return 3.8 mi via Hammond & Liberty Trails (2 1/2 hrs).  Approximately 2500' elevation gain.  Meet at the Liberty Trail parking area (parking fee) at the end of Paugus Mill Road (Chocorua Mountain Road according to GoogleMaps).  Please wear layers, bring a lunch and plenty of water and wear sturdy hiking shoes/boots.

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

Directions: Route 16N (Spaulding Turnpike) to Route 25W at the traffic light in West Ossipee.  Go west on 25 to Route 113N (Tamworth).  From the west take Route 25E past Route 113 to Sandwich to a left onto the Route 113 for Tamworth.  Take 113 into Tamworth village and continue straight ahead on Route 113A (the Chinook Trail).  Turn right onto Fowlers Mill Road.  Then turn left onto Paugus Road (a dirt road); there should be a sign indicating hiking trails for Mt Chocorua.  Drive in to the end at the Liberty Trail trailhead.  I'll be in a silver Focus wagon with CT plates.  For anyone coming from the south or east and interested in carpooling from my cottage in Center Ossipee (at the junction of Rtes 16 & 25E), please feel free to get in touch.  You'll need to meet me at 9AM so we can leave no later than 9:15AM.
