These hikes are designed for active, fit participants interested in summiting some 4000+ foot peaks in the White Mountains. Participants may be after the 48 peaks or just interested in some moderately challenging hiking in the White Mountains with a group. The day will start with a welcome session where you will meet and greet other group members and guides and go over the day's route. Our professional guides will cover what to expect during the hike including terrain, trail conditions, weather, hiking safety, a recommended gear list, Leave No Trace, and more. During the hike, guides will point out interesting flora/fauna along the trail. The group will attempt to hike at least one 4000 footer, but actual hiking destinations may vary based on weather and trail conditions. The scheduled hike is Carter Dome via the 19 Mile Brook and Carter Dome trails. An optional loop can be made to include hiking past Carter Notch Hut. This challenging 4000 footer hike climbs over steep terrain for 4.8 miles to the summit of Carter Dome, gaining 3700 feet in elevation. Round trip 10.0 miles, 7-9 hours.
