Celebrate Gay Pride with Mike and Jon on this EASY 2.2 mile up and back hike to Black Cap Peak. Please bring a rainbow flag to stick outside your pack as we “Hike For Equality”, continuing the fight for equal rights for all citizens and fostering a community where all LGBTQ members feel valued, included, and safe! We will have a few spare rainbow flags, not many, for you to borrow, if you don’t have one.
Black Cap at 2,369 feet is an easy-moderate hike that offers fantastic views of the Presidential Range and is one of the most popular short hikes in the White Mountains. Don’t forget your camera with this one. We’ll hike up and back on the Black Cap Trail.
We are keeping the hike at 10 people to make it easier to practice the recommended social distancing of keeping about 6 feet of distance between everyone. Join us for a short hike in the great outdoors for some fresh air and some much needed camaraderie!
What to wear/bring: Wear clothing suitable for a hike. Carry a pack with a rain jacket inside in the event of wind or inclement weather. Also carry 1 liter of water, snacks and anything else you may require for a day hike. Contact us if you have any questions.
After the Hike: Following the hike, we invite everyone for a Pride Tailgage Party back at our vehicles. Bring your own lunch and beverages. We can hang out around our truck practicing social distancing for some fun banter, laughter and fun!
Bunk Beds Lodging Option: Bunk beds are available at our house [with Wi Fi] near Waterville Valley, NH for Friday and/or Saturday nights. It's $25 per night. Please note that we live 1 ½ hours away from North Conway off of I-93. Coffee/bagels each morning and linen/blankets/towels are provided. If you would like to join us for a gourmet dinner prepared by Jon Saturday night, please let us know…we charge $10 to cover our food costs. Space is limited so email ASAP to reserve a bunk!
Directions To Trailhead Parking Lot
We are meeting at 10:30AM at the trailhead. We'll be wearing GO hats and have rainbow flags sticking outside of our packs.
Trailhead off Hurricane Mountain Road. From NH Route 16 and 2 miles north of North Conway Village, turn right onto Hurricane Mountain Road just north of the scenic vista at the North Conway/Bartlett town line [this is a steep winding road]. At the height of land, a parking area is on the right.
