Trip report

South Uncanoonuc Mt.

LGBTQ Hike DATE: 04/02/2022 - 04/02/2022

Trip/Event Location: Goffstown, NH

Trip Leader(s): Mark S

Max # People: 12

Trip Guiding / Event Fee: No, I will not be asking participants for money

Difficulty Level: Easy

Let's plan to walk all the trails (Bickford, Summit, Walker and Incline [a well-named trail for a beginner]). That will require a little bit of duplicate walking. One of the links below is a map

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

Trailhead is at the end of Mountain Base Road in Goffstown, NH. Take Wallace Road from a traffic circle on Rt. 114, 0.6 miles east of the southern junction of Rt. 13 and Rt. 144 and 3.2 miles west of Rt. 114A. Drive 1.5 miles down Wallace Road and turn right onto Mountain Base Road. Follow it 0.9 miles to its end at the lake and park at the small dirt parking area near the kiosk. We can all meet at the kiosk. Carpooling might be a good idea. A good spot for that is Market Basket 539 Donald Street in Bedford, where you can but last minute items before the hike. "Mountain Base Road" will work on Waze.

While I was trying to destroy my sunglasses today, Graz was trying to destroy his smartphone. Fortunately, neither of us was successful.
