First weekend of summer brought travelers from all over New England and New York to Mountainside Campground in Hinsdale NH for a great weekend. GO hikers along with Mountainside guests ventured into Pisgah State Park seeking Mt Pisgah and Kilburn Pond. The weather was perfect and the comradery was great. 2.2 miles to the open ledges along the ridge gave way to great views. Few blueberries were ready for the picking and a bumper crop will be ripe in just a couple weeks. Hilers then completed the Kilburn Pond Loop. The park offers many trail options (year round) and combinations. Beautiful ponds, streams and ledges scattered through out. The groups came together for a potluck meal and campfires. A few ventured out to the night woods to explore the wilderness at night seeking wildlife. Accomidations were ideal and provided a variety of options. HUGE thank you to the owners of Mountainside for providing a welcoming atmosphere and their unconditional support through out the weekend. Mountainside and Pisgah State Park are amazing hidden gems that should be explored. If you feel you missed out on this oppertunity another weekend is scheduled for MODERATE to STRENOUS hikers on July 22 and 23.
