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.

Join us for a Warren Miller Ski Movie on Friday then hike with us on Saturday! You can join us for the Warren Miller Ski Movie on its own, just hike with us on Saturday or better yet, do both!

Join us for a Warren Miller Ski Movie on Friday then hike with us on Saturday! This year's movie is called the Face of Winter, the admission cost is $20 that includes free ski passes to Waterville Valley and Sugarbush; and you can purchase raffle tickets for some awesome prizes. The movie is at the Flying Monkey theater in Plymouth,NH. Click here to purchase a ticket. Movie starts at 8PM, you are welcome to join us for dinner at 6:30PM [cost is $10] and spend the night at Mad River Lodge for $25. 

The finest summit in the little Benton Range west of Mt. Moosilauke at 1,800 feet, offers an expanse of open ledge at the top! There are wide views of the Connecticut River valley to Vermont, south to Black’s Benton Range neighbors the Middle Connecticut River Mountains, and east to Moosilauke, the Kinsmans and more.  The upper section of the Chippewa is STEEP. We’ll have an opportunity for a fascinating detour to the Lime Kilns, huge ovens used in the 1800s to release lime from limestone.  

The trail starts directly upward among dense pines and then among juniper through more overgrown fields. On the summit, we’ll search for Tipping Rock, a huge glacial erratic. As you can see, the views are terrific! Bring lunch, water and dress in layers.

Trail Specifics:

• Roundtrip Length – 3.75 Miles

• Elevation Gain - 1800 Feet

• Expected Time - 3.5 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 an easier hike.

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.

If you have any questions, please reach out to us in advance.
