Join our GetWinter hikes to get you into winter hiking! The hikes get progressively harder leading up to a winter Franconia Ridge Traverse!
This trip's focus is to continue with layering...
To the Waterville Valley Ski Area Parking Lot #1 / Mount Tecumseh Trail head . From I-93, take exit 28 for Route 49. At the bottom of the exit ramp, head East on Route 49. After 10.4 miles, turn left onto Tripoli Road. Follow Tripoli Road for 1.2 miles, then turn left onto the Waterville Valley Ski Area access road (Fire Route 30). Follow the access road for 0.6 mile which will bring you to the parking areas and the ski lodge. Look for parking lot #1 (That is the closest parking lot to where the Mount Tecumseh trail begins.) We'll be driving a blue Toyota Tacoma truck.
Started at about 9:30 AM and temps in the high 30’s. Hiked through a beautiful winter wonderland! Trail is well packed out. We put on our spikes at the start and wore them all the way up and back. Lots of nice hikers out today. Summit was rather cold and windy. Another great trip with the gang including Dave, Ricardo, and Jim. Home by 2pm!
