Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

We will meet at the trailhead parking lot.  To get there from I-93, get off at exit 28 (Campton/Waterville Valley) and go east on Rt. 49 (also known as the Mad River Road).  As you make the turn, and if it is a clear day, you should see the open ledges of Welch-Dickey looming ahead of you.  Go east on Rt 49 towards those mountains.  At approximately 4.5 miles after you pass the Campton Dam (there is a traffic light there, as this is the junction with Rt. 175), turn left onto Upper Mad River Road.  At 0.7 miles turn right onto Orris Rd., where you should see a sign directing you to the Welch-Dickey trailhead.  At 0.6 miles, Orris Road makes a sharp turn to the left, and the trailhead parking will be on your right.  We will be driving a red Rav4, with NH plates.
