Summary

Mount Chocorua: elevation (highest point) 3478 ft, distance to highest is 5.8 miles, total trip distance approx. 9.7 miles.

This trip is considered STRENUOUS. Please note that this hike will have a steady/quick pace with steep grades and open ledges. Winter conditions are possible. Micro-spikes are required, and snowshoes should be considered. This trail has remote/limited access.

Don’t be fooled! This hike will start at an elevation of 1262ft following the Champney Falls Trail 0.1 miles to the Bolles Trail. A steady climb of 1.9 miles to an elevation of 2269 ft before a downward climb to 1300ft (almost equal to the starting elevation) at 3.7 miles. At this point, the climb turns up the Bee Line Trail for a straight steady climb up to the summit of Mount Chocorua at an elevation of 3478 ft at 5.8 miles. This summit is completely exposed with no protection from harsh weather. A hike-around option is available if the summit is dangerous. Leaving the summit and following the ridge to Middle sister at 3353 ft and 6.8 miles. The descent follows the Champney Falls cut-off to Champney Falls Trail and returns to the point of origin.

The group will meet at the Champney Falls / Bolles trailhead at 8 am and depart at 8:20 am

The parking lot is located on the Kancamagus Highway (aka Route 112). Distance from Interstate 93 is 24.7 miles, and from Route 16 Conway is 10.5 miles. Arrive early, a very popular trail for hikers and ice climbers, and parking is difficult/limited in the winter.

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!! This summit is completely exposed with no options for cover from harsh weather.  

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.

Food for thought, (a) Stay to the plan with selected route. (b) take Champney Falls directly up and back. Approx 1 mile less, but more traveled and packed route. Chatter at the trail head.

Parking is tight, this is a VERY popular trail to access ice climbing routes.

nhclimber03264 Posted Feb 24, 2024 at 10:37 AM

Bring snowshoes.

Hey everyone, I live 14 miles from the trailhead. If anyone would like to stay Saturday night I have a spare room. I live in a quiet place in the woods. Let me know. Marc
