Overview

Join fellow young members as we ascend Mount Chocorua (3500') for some of the best views in the White Mountains! This loop begins on the popular Piper trail and continues via fun scrambles up Nickerson and Carter Ledges to the scenic summit of Middle Sister. After enjoying Middle Sister's open ledge views, we will embark on the Middle Sister and Piper Trails to the summit of Mount Chocorua. After taking in the 360 degree views, we will descend via the Liberty, Hammond, Weetamoo, and Piper trails. This 8 mile loop is appropriate for experienced hikers who are comfortable with a moderate to fast pace and 3000' of elevation gain. To address unforeseen challenges such as adverse weather, unacceptable trail conditions or excessive crowding, the planned trip destination, activity and/or meeting place and time may be modified. In that event, participants may elect to join in that activity or opt out. We will not require the use of face masks on this trip, following the rescinding of restrictions by MA and NH, although we note that masks are still advised for unvaccinated individuals whenever 6' distancing with others cannot be maintained.
