Summary

Join us for this beautiful 5 mile loop hike over the summits of West and East Rattlesnake Mountains, and then on to five finger point.  Total elevation gain for the whole hike is less than 1000 feet.   West and East Rattlesnake have granite ledges with beautiful views out onto Squam Lake, where On Golden Pond was filmed.      5 finger point is a 5 fingered peninsula jutting out into Squam Lake with beautiful views along the lake.   From the trailhead,  we'll take the Pasture Trail to the top of West Rattlesnake Mountain, enjoy the views, and then continue along the ridge trail to the less visited summit of East Rattlesnake Mountain for more great views.   We'll then take the East Rattlesnake trail down to the 5 finger point trail and do the loop along the peninsula and then back to the trailhead.  After the hike we may go out for beverages for those that are interested.   

 

Directions To Trailhead Parking Lot

From the intersection of Rt 3 and Rt 113 in Holderness, NH, take Rt 113 about 5 miles and then make a right onto Pinehurst Rd (Google Map "Pinehurst Rd, Holderness, NH").  Pinehurst Rd is about 0.5 miles before the parking areas for West Rattlesnake and Mt. Morgan.  If you reach these two parking areas, you have gone to far and missed Pinehurst Rd.   Once on Pinehurst Rd go a little less than a mile and park in a parking area on the right side of the road right before the "no parking behind these signs" sign for Rockywold and Deephaven camps.

Looking forward to seeing everyone on tomorrow's hike. Just wanted to let everyone know that the hike time has changed to 11 am to allow any residual rain remnants of the overnight rain to conclude before we hike. It should be a high in the lower 50s, so great weather for hiking. Thad
