Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

We will meet at the parking lot for the Welch-Dickey trail.  Directions from I-93 are as follows:

Take Exit 28 (Campton/Waterville Valley) and head east on Rt. 49, the Mad River Road.  In about a mile you will reach a traffic light at the intersection of Rt. 49 and Rt. 175.  The Campton dam will be on your right, and the ledges of Welch-Dickey will be visible straight ahead from here.  Go through the traffic light, staying on Rt. 49, and in about 4.5 miles turn left onto Upper Mad River Road (crossing the Mad River on a bridge as you do so).  Stay on this road as it winds, and in 0.7 mile turn right onto Orris Road.  There will be a sign here for the Welch-Dickey trail, so you can't miss it.  Stay on Orris for about 0.6 mile and enter the parking lot on the right.

We'll be driving a green Mini-Cooper.

  • Sorry this took so long but this was a great event. Good group of guys and perfect weather. (Good call to postpone for a day). Chris and Don were awesome trip leaders and very attentive to their "flock." Look forward to another event with you. John - NHGuy1028
