Half Day Hike Let's hike to the SOLAR ECLIPSE !!!

Meeting Time: 12:30 PM

Event Coordinator: MO
Lancaster, NH

Max # People: 15

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

Difficulty Level: Easy to Moderate


Due to the weather these past few days this event is moving from Dixville Notch to Lancaster, NH.  Hiking conditions in the Notch are such that the dynamics & safety of that hike has change (especially on top of Table Rock - the eclipse viewing area). 


Don't forget to bring your ISO certified eclipse eyewear.


NOTE – The NHDOT & local news are warning of travel delays - especially as you travel into the region of the eclipise.  We are hoping, by moving the hike to Lancaster, you will avoid the most significant of these delays.



12:30 pm  Hike Mt Prospect (Weeks State Park).  Please be on time - factor in increased travel time.

We'll have a quick lunch at the top - so bring your lunch. 

You will need boots & traction (microspikes).  

Forecast: the low 50s & sunny.


2:30 pm - To view the eclipse in its totality we need to head to intown Lancaster - about 4 miles away from the park.  Totality is about 60 seconds duration on the north side of town.

 NOTE:  There maybe limited parking in Lancaster so we may want to carpool into town - then carpool back to Weeks.



Eclipse Start:  02:16 pm

Start Totality:  03:29 pm

End Totality:  03:30 pm  (about 60 sec totality duration)

Eclipse End:  04:38 pm
