WHP: Gunstock/Rowe (Level 1)

Date and Time

Saturday, January 8, 2022


Gunstock Mountain, NH,
New Hampshire, Lakes Region,


Registration is required for this activity.


This trip is part of the Boston Chapter Winter Hiking Program (WHP) and is only open to enrolled participants of that program. If you would like more information about the WHP, please email us at or follow the link below. These two peaks in the Belknap Range offer a gentle introduction to the NH mountains in winter. After a steady climb, we'll have a nice ridge walk with occasional peek-out views, culminating in a broad sweep of Lake Winnipesaukee from Gunstock's summit. Our route covers 6.7miles and climb 1670'. We aim for a moderate-to-relaxed but largely steady pace and should finish in 5-6 hours. This trip is suitable for WHP participants with a solid base of three-season hiking experience and regular exercise. All participants must present a copy or image of their vaccination record for COVID 19 or proof that they have received a negative PCR test within 72 hours of the start of the hike. Participants are required to bring a mask to wear during any emergency or similar situation that requires people to be within close proximity for an extended period of time. 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.

Jon finished a round of the New England Hundred Highest just before heading off to the Southwest for four years. He's thrilled to be back in New England and working seriously on the winter 4000-footers. Other fun had in the meantime includes the Pikes Peak Marathon and a rim-to-rim-to-rim run of the Grand Canyon. Goal-oriented but interested in keeping things safe and fun.
