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.

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

Get to know fellow sustaining members! Dinner afterwards in Newbury. 

We will hike the Newbury Trail to the summit of Mount Sunapee, elevation 2,726 feet. Mount Sunapee shows off the far northern mountains and nearby Lake Sunapee! It’s part of the Mount Sunapee State Park and is a great out-and-back challenge for intermediate hikers.

We’ll ascend using the Newbury Trail, check out Eagles Nest, with a fine view across Lake Sunapee; and the White Ledges above Lake Solitude with a fine panorama before reaching the summit with more views.  It's been quite a while since we've had a hike to this summit. And as you can see, the views are terrific!

Trail Specifics:

• Roundtrip Length – 5.8 Miles

• Elevation Gain – 1,850 Feet

• Expected Time – 3 to 4 hours

You need to have the hiking capability to complete this hike. If you do not have this skill level, then please sign-up for our easier hikes.

Make sure to bring gear for an early winter hike. Gloves, hats, raingear are all mandatory. You should be prepared with wicking layers and wear NO COTTON.

Afterwards, we'll find a restaurant in Newbury for an early dinner. 

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

The official start and parking place in the Newbury Post Office lot on NH 103, opposite the Newbury town dock. We'll be driving a blue Toyota Tacoma truck.
