Meeting Time: 11:00 AM

Event Coordinator: chkhuber
Moultonborough, NH

Max # People: 8

Trip Guiding / Event Fee: No, I will not be asking participants for money

Difficulty Level: Easy to Moderate


We'll meet up at the Shannon Brook parking area on RT 171.  Starting with the Shannon Brook Trail, we'll use the Bald Knob cut-off trail. Here we'll see a great overlook of Lake Winnepesaukee and the Belknap Range (Gunstock) and have a lunch or snack.  After a back track on the Cut-off trail, we'll take in the Brook Trail.  There are seven waterfalls within this one mile hike   A hike back down Shannon Brook trail will bring us back to the parking lot.

The hike is 4 miles, with a top elevation of 1800'.  It will take 2-3 hours, which leaves plenty of time for a swim in Lake Winnepesaukee at the Melvin Village wharf.

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

Shannon Brook Trail on rt 171, 2.3 miles east of the Rt 109 junction, and just east of the entrance to Castle in the Clouds.

I will be driving a white GMC pick up.
