Disclaimer: The club and its members take no responsibility and will not be held responsible for any injuries or accidents that may occur during club events. 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. Anyone with an internet connection can post a trip on the GayOutdoors web site. It is your responsibility to determine if this person has the experience and competence to lead the trip.

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

Please join me for this 4.5 mile hike up Mt Major (elevation gain = 1150').  The 1700' peak is open, with spectacular views all around, most especially of the eastern reaches of Lake Winnipesaukee.  We'll ascend via the Boulder Loop Trail (2 miles with some steeper sections) and come down the Brook Trail (2.5 miles).

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

Route 28 from east and west meets Route 11 at a rotary just south of Alton Bay.  Take Route 11N/28A which soon reaches Alton Bay where Rte 11 turns sharply left and then right to go up the west side of the lake.  From here it's 4.2 miles to the Mt Major parking lot on your left (west side).  If the lot is full parking is permitted on the shoulder of Rte 11.  We'll meet at the map/info board in the parking lot.  Please bring water, snacks and lunch for the summit.
