Overview

Join us for a moderately paced 11.4 mile loop hike linking Mt. Cabot (4,170'), The Horn (3,905'), The Bulge (3,950') and Unknown Pond. Enjoy the combination of a hike through a remote, pristine spruce-birch forest, with elevation gain (approx. 2,664'), and some long views. Listed as one of the Best Hikes Ever by Backpacker Magazine (Oct. 2010). We'll keep a steady pace, traveling at the speed of the slowest hiker. Due to the remoteness of the trailhead (in Berlin NH) and an early start we encourage participants to spend Friday night in northern New Hampshire; the leaders will provide suggestions. Gear: Normal three-season hiking gear (see related links) and ask the leaders if you have any questions or substitutions. Leave room in your pack for a small amount of group gear (likely approximately the size of a 1L Nalgene; weighing a pound or two).

Leader



(Email this person.)

Jon finished a round of the New England Hundred Highest just before heading off to the Southwest for four years. He's thrilled to be back in New England and working seriously on the winter 4000-footers. Other fun had in the meantime includes the Pikes Peak Marathon and a rim-to-rim-to-rim run of the Grand Canyon. Goal-oriented but interested in keeping things safe and fun.

Marcella completed the NH 4000 footers, and can't seem to get enough of them! She enjoys getting others psyched about hiking, particularly in NH. She has been skiing and hiking in the white mountains since she was about 5 years old.
