New Hampshire, North Country,
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).
