It is also highly recommended to bring a BLISTER KIT (DIY kits online).

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

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 there is a cancellation, it will include a rescheduled date so participants can watch for that opportunity.  For the current weather on this hike use the following link: www.mountwashington.org

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 the hike leader.
