New Hampshire, White Mountains,
Come join us to hike Mt. Tecumseh, New Hampshire's shortest 4000 footer, which is named after a native American Shawnee warrior and chief. We will hike via Mount Tecumseh Trail. The hike will be a below treeline out and back with a total mileage of 5 miles and the elevation gain will be 2,300 feet. The hike will afford a few views of the Waterville Valley ski area and the Sandwich Range Wilderness. Some previous winter hiking experience needed. Boston Chapter AMC winter hiking program graduates and current 2017-2018 participants are encouraged to join us on this hike if they have completed several hikes in winter conditions prior to this trip. Join us on this excursion for good company. This trip is cross-posted in H/B and Young Members. Required winter hiking gear includes among other things: Microspikes or Hillsounds (no substitutes allowed), insulated winter boots, gaiters, waterproof layers, warm layers, gloves, hat, headlamp/flashlight, lunch/snacks, a minimum of 2 liters of water in nalgenes, etc. You should have crampons and snowshoes (a decision on whether we need those or not will be last minute and dependent on weather conditions). No cotton clothing.
