Mt Kearsarge North Trail: elevation (highest point) 3,266ft, distance to highest is 3.1miles, total trip distance 6.2 miles.

This trail is in BARTLETT NH and not Wilmont NH. There are two Mt Kearsarge in NH

This trip is considered MODERATE. Some steep grade, pace and distance are factors.

Group will meet at 9 am and depart up the trail at 9:15am.

Hike begins on Hurricane Mountain Road (1.5 miles from route 302) in Bartlett NH. Hurricane Mountain Road is the town line between Conway and Bartlett NH, this may cause some confusion with different GPS systems.

The hike follows a steady climb, reaching the first overlook at 1.1 miles. The trail will cross some open ledges which can be slippery when wet. The trail continues a steady climb to the ridge which leads to the summit. The Kearsarge Fire tower provides 365 degree views of the Mountain Washington Valley, the Eastern Slope of Mount Washington and areas in Maine.

PREPARATION/WHAT TO BRING: White Mountains can have unpredictable and extreme weather changes year-round. It is recommended that hikers have extra dry clothing and wind protection. Always have water (There is no potable water sources along this trail) and food. If you need suggestions on what to bring, PLEASE ASK!!

It is also highly recommended to bring a BLISTER KIT (DIY kits online). If this is the first hike of the season or brand-new footwear, foot first aid most likely will be necessary.

For this trip it is important to bring along flexibility, patience, and a sense of humor.

It is possible for black flies and ticks to be out by this point in the season. Bug repellent is recommended. Remember the one thing worse than annoying bugs is people complaining about annoying bugs. Helpful hint: Avoid perfumed scents in soaps, bodywash and shampoo. These will attract bugs.

Group Size It is not fun leaving folks out of trips. If you cannot attend, PLEASE cancel so others may join. If you are on the waiting list, please contact me days prior to the trip, most likely there is room and if needed this trail will allow us to break the group into two smaller groups. Dogs are the FULL responsibility of the owner and cannot interfere with the hike or the participants. This hike may not be ideal for dogs because of other dogs and hikers. This trail is narrow and steep. It is up to the owner. A leash (close at hand) is highly recommended (also required in WMNF).

Decreasing the impact to the environment is always a priority! Please plan to “carry in and carry out” all items. It may also be possible to collect other hikers’ debris along the way.

Weather: If weather is a concern any updates or cancellation information will be posted by the Thursday prior by 6pm. If it is a cancellation it will include a rescheduled date so participants can watch for that opportunity.

Safety is a priority! Any time a hiker is injured or lost a HUGE team of volunteers is dispatched to aid in the search and rescue efforts. No one wants to be injured or put other in harms way. Always be prepared. Know your limits. Any questions feel free to contact me.

Group will meet at 9 am and depart up the trail at 9:15am.
