SHP: Mt Chocorua - Vigorous

Date and Time

Sunday, June 23, 2024


Mt. Chocorua Scenic Area,
New Hampshire, White Mountains,


Registration is required for this activity.


This trip is part of the Boston Chapter Spring Hiking Program (SHP) and is only open to enrolled participants of that program. Join us on a wonderful spring hike with a visit to the Mt. Chocorua Scenic Area in the southern White Mountain National Forest in Albany, NH! This trip will feature an out and back hike, with a potential waterfall along the way, to the spectacular summit of one of New Hampshire's most photographed "52 With a View" peaks: Mt. Chocorua (3,500). Plan for a moderate pace across 7.6 miles, gaining approximately 2,400 feet of elevation. Estimated hiking time for this trip, depending on the group and conditions, is up to 8 hours. While this trip is intended for SHP participants, it is rigorous by nature. You may be a good fit for a "Vigorous" trip if you are participating in trips that gradually increase in difficulty level, distance, and elevation gain, including at least one recent SHP trip rated as "Moderate" (or an equivalent outside of the program). A good rule of thumb is to plan hikes at least every few weeks, with one trip at least 2/3 of the distance and elevation gain within a few weeks of this trip. 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.
