Summary

B.B.T.S.  Black and Blue Trail Smashers!

Eagle Cliff Trail on Red Hill: elevation (highest point) 2030 ft, distance to highest is 2.5 miles, total trip distance approx. 5+ miles.

This trip is considered MODERATE to STRENUOUS. Please note that this hike will have a steady/quick pace with steep grade and open ledges. Winter conditions are possible. 

The group will meet at the Eagle Cliff Trail head at 9 am and depart at 9:20 am

Eagle cliff Trail head is located on the Bean Road in Sandwich NH.

PREPARATION/WHAT TO BRING: The 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 and food. If you need suggestions on what to bring, PLEASE ASK!! The summit building/fire tower access will be unknown, please plan accordingly.

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.

  • 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 will be room and if needed this trail will allow us to break the group into two smaller groups.
  • Please do NOT bring any dogs on this hike.

Decreasing the impact on 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 the weather is a concern any updates or cancellation information will be posted by the Thursday prior to 6 pm. If there is a cancellation, it will include a “possible” 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 others in harm’s way. Always be prepared. Know your limits. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the hike leaders.

Looking at maybe breaking 50 degrees. Sunscreen is highly recommended. Trail will be packed, maybe glazed so micro-spikes are a must.

Kicking and screaming, Fred... I'm coming kicking and screaming into winter hiking. There may be some pouting on trail, just to warm you.
