Overview

Mount Chocorua, in the eastern Sandwich Range, is touted as the most photographed mountain in NH with its unmistakable pinnacle when seen from practically anywhere in the Ossipee region. We will plan to hike on some of the less traveled trails to enjoy the low-land diversity of the Sandwich Range Wilderness along with the more popular summit trails. Another potential treat is a visit to the Chapney Falls and possibly Pitcher Falls (which is a popular ice climbing spot) if the water level is agreeable. Although not a 4,000' peak, Chocorua is just as challenging as some. At 3,500' it sports nearly a mile of bare, treeless, trail around the summit and short sections of steep scrambles. It is a worthy member of the "52 With a View (WAV)" list of peaks, providing a 360 degree vista. Early winter weather will greet us and special attention to appropriate clothing in AMC's 3 season gear list is called for (in addition to the 10 essentials). The trails will cover all types of woodland and mountain terrain with water crossings. Participants should plan for trekking 8 hours to cover 10+ miles and achieve 3,300' 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 the activity or opt out.
