A fun opportunity to figure out how to carry all your winter gear, and to ask questions of the leaders concerning equipment any other topics covered in the Winter Hiking Program while hiking on real trails but without the drive to the Whites. . If the weather cooperates, we'll also have a chance to practice heat and energy management as well. 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 hike approximately seven miles with about 700' of elevation gain/loss. Plan for this to take about five hours.
