Summary

In the past, many ancient cultures associated an eclipse "with the occurrence of misfortunes".  Well, it would be your misfortune to miss the April 8th Total Eclipse.  The next total solar eclipse viewable from New England is in 2079 (not sure about you - but guessing some of us won't be around to see it). 

We plan to include a easy/moderate hike to get to our viewing spot.   We'll be hiking in Dixville Notch - to Table Rock and will use the Three Brothers Trail (do NOT confuse Table Rock in Dixville Notch with Table Rock in Grafton Notch).    

 

One of many online sites with eclipse information: 

https://www.greatamericaneclipse.com/new-hampshire-2024-eclipse 

 

Eclipse Details In Dixville Notch: 

Partial Eclipse starts:  2:17 pm 
Total Eclipse starts:   3:28 pm 
Totality Duration:  2 minutes 45 seconds 

 

Hike Details: 

Hike Length:   2.8 miles (out & back) 
Hike Elevation gain:  1,164 feet 

Hike start time:   12:30 pm  
Arrival at Table Rock:  1:30 PM (approximate)
Departure from Table Rock:  4 PM (approximate) 
Hike End Time:  5 PM (approximate) 

 

Be prepared to spend 3ish hours on Table Rock – what you will need: 

   . Solar eclipse viewing glasses to block out harmful ultra-violet rays (sunglasses will not do)  

   . Lunch & snacks and anything chocolate? 

   . Beverage of choice (maybe hot chocolate ?) 

   . Butt cushion, lawn chair (or patio furniture ?) 

   . App games, cards, board games (Risk?) - to keep us entertained till the eclipse starts

   . Traction like Microspikes to complement your footwear (dependent on trail conditions) 

 

Closer to the hike date will contact participants regarding trail conditions,  car pooling,  and an after-the-hike gathering.
