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

Mount Chocorua is calling.  This is a great hike with spectacular views especially during fall foliage.   The hike is a loop - slightly under 10 miles. 

We will take the following trails on our ascent:   Piper, Nickerson, Carter Ledge, Middle Sister then back on Piper to the summit.   

Our descent will be via the Liberty trail onto Hammond to the Weetamoo (a beautiful trail in the fall) then back onto Piper.

There are terrific views from the Sisters and 360 views from Mount Chocoura.  To quote one website:  “Mt. Chocorua looks like the summit of a peak you may find in the Colorado Rockies!”

 

Estimated Elevation Gain: 3000  feet
Estimated Round Trip Distance: 9.6 miles
Estimated  Duration (with lunch): 7.5 hours
