Join us on a midspring hike to Mt. Hancock and South Hancock. This will be a fairly strenuous 9.8 mile hike with about 2900' elevation gain. We will begin on the Hancock Notch Trail off the Kancamagus Highway. When we reach the Cedar Brook Trail, we will proceed north over several brook crossings. The real fun begins on the Hancock Loop Trail, which involves a very steep incline over about 0.5 mile to the first summit, a beautiful traverse over to the second peak, and then 0.5 miles down a steep decline. We will maintain a moderate pace of about 1.5 miles per hour. Both peaks have beautiful views if the weather cooperates. Due to the unpredictability of the weather this time of year, some winter hiking experience is required. Winter gear may be necessary, including snowshoes, microspikes, and possibly crampons.
