Mount Morgan & Percival Loop Hike, Holderness, NH - joint with AMC family. Difficulty=B3B

Trip dates: Saturday, May 6, 2017 12:00 AM

Join us for a day hike along with the AMC family group on Mount Morgan (2220')/Mount Percival (2212') loop (~ 5.3 miles; 1575 feet of elevation gain). This hike is appropriate for kids and adults ages 8+ with some hiking experience on open rocky ledges. We will hike open ledges, a series of fun wooden ladders and tight squeezes through rock caves, cliff faces and rock scrambles, not for the faint of heart, as well as an alternate path or two should caves and ladders not be your thing. The climb is moderate to steep.

We will start and end at the Mount Morgan Trailhead. We will take the Mount Morgan Trail, Crawford-Ridgepole Trail, Mount Percival Trail, and Morgan-Percival Connector. We will hike at a moderate pace enjoying the views and lunch on Mount Percival. Total outing time, including lunch and breaks, should be about 5 - 6 hours. Dangerous weather conditions cancel.

We will meet at the Mount Morgan trailhead in Holderness, NH along Route 113. From I-93: From I-93, take Exit 24 and follow Rt. 3 South about 4.6 miles to Holderness. Turn left onto NH Rt. 113 and follow it northeast for ~ 5.6 miles to Morgan Trailhead on the left. Parking for this trail is at the end of a short gravel road
