Summary

Our third of five winter introduction hikes to ease you into winter hiking leading to ascending your first winter 4,000 footer! MicroSpikes required, insulated winter hiking boots recommended and snowshoes may be needed. We’ll let you know a few days before if snowshoes will be needed.

The summit of Mount Pemigewasset’s [2,557 feet] has excellent views from Indian Head Cliff for a modest effort! The Indian Head Cliff nets us a panorama southward over the Pemigewasset River Valley, with Mt. Wolf and Mt. Moosilauke looming in the southwest. We’ll be taking the Mt. Pemigewasset Trail up and back. 

The entire hike is only 3.5 miles with 1,250 feet elevation gain. We’ll have lunch on the summit. Start time is 10:30 AM.

Don't forget to wear warm layers [NO COTTON OR BLUE JEANS], gloves, warm hat, rain/wind shell, water, lunch, snacks, and anything else you would bring for a cold weather hike. We are packing hand warmers for our gloves. The trail will be covered with snow and ice so a traction device of some sort like MicroSpikes is required. Winter insulated boots to keep your feet and toes warm recommended. We’ll let you know if snowshoes will be required a few days before the hike. Since this is an introduction series, please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions on the clothing and gear to bring!  

Après Hiking Dinner:  Everyone is welcome to join us back at our house in Waterville Valley if you provide us proof of vaccination to relax beside our fireplace with views of the Sandwich Mountain/Mad River [BYOB and bring snacks] followed by one of Jon's delicious dinners. We ask $10 per person to help pay for our food costs. Showers are available so bring a change of clothing to make your visit with us more comfortable.

Lodging Option: Bunk beds are available at our house [with Wi Fi] near Waterville Valley, NH for Friday and/or Saturday night if you provide us proof of vaccination. Its $25 for Friday night and $35 for Saturday that includes dinner [$60 for the weekend]. Coffee/bagels each morning and linen/blankets/towels are provided. Space is limited so email ASAP to reserve a bunk!

Directions To Trailhead Parking Lot

Trailhead and parking area are at the Flume Gorge in Lincoln, NH. The Flume Gorge is accessed from exit 34A on Rt. 93. Park on the north (left) side of the parking area to easily access the bike path. We'll be driving a blue Toyota Tacoma truck.
