Summary

Join Neil B. for a hike to the summit of Mt. Sunapee in Newbury, NH. We’ll hike the two mile (one way) Summit Trail, an elevation gain of approximately 1600 feet. If there’s time and interest, we’ll make a side trip to the Lake Solitude overlook, an additional 1-1/2 miles round trip. This is a “moderate” hike, OK for novice hikers. (We won't be setting any speed records! :) Once at the summit, we'll have lunch. Bring a lunch and/or snacks, water, sunscreen, sturdy footwear, and layered clothing, including a hat and gloves. In early October it could be quite brisk at the summit—especially if it's windy—but considerably warmer at lower altitudes.

If there's interest, we'll go out for a late afternoon snack or early dinner after the hike. While masks are not required during the hike, we'll try to maintain a reasonable social distance. Nevertheless, be sure to have a mask with you. You'll need that to go inside any store or restaurant. Meeting time: 10:45 a.m.; we'll set out at 11.

**UPDATE WED. 9/30**

Since there's a short waitlist, I'm opening the hike to the following waitlisted members: vwgreg, twamsle, vtfred, and rolshausenii.

Also, re. masks: I think we all should wear them, at least initially. As the hike progresses, if we start to break up into smaller, socially distant groups, masks may not be as necessary (though I still encourage them).

Directions To Trailhead Parking Lot

We’ll meet across from the Sunapee Lodge in the main parking area at the end of Mt. Sunapee Road (which may also be labeled Rt. 103B). From Boston and points south, take I-93 to I-89 north just before Concord, NH. Follow I-89 to exit 9. Turn right on Rt. 103 west, and follow the route 10+ miles to the traffic circle at the junction of Rt. 103B. Turn right on Mt. Sunapee Road (see signs for the Mt. Sunapee Ski Area and/or Resort; don't take the Beach Access Road), and follow to the end.

From the north, follow GPS directions to the junction of Rts. 103 and 103B/Mt. Sunapee Road in Newbury, NH, then follow the directions above.

I'll be driving a navy blue Toyota Prius with MA license plates.
