Fall Hike to The Hancocks, Two 4ks Near Kanc. Hwy (A3B)

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Sat September 13, 2014

Sat., Sept. 13. Fall hike to The Hancocks (A3B), two 4000 footers that lie between Mt. Carrigain and the Pemigewasset Wilderness area, just off the Kancamagus Highway. The approach to the two peaks is easy with a gentle grade until we get to the junction on the Hancock Loop Trail where we will climb a steep 0.5 miles to South Hancock. We then traverse 1.4 miles over a generally broad, bumpy ridge with several minor ups and downs to North Hancock. The round-trip hike is 9.8 miles with 2700' of elevation gain.

The trail to these two mountain peaks is a loop trail known as the Hancock Loop Trail, which is reached from Cedar Brook Trail and Hancock Notch Trail, starting at the Kancamagus Highway parking area as follows:

Hancock Notch Trail: For the Hancocks, we will follow this trail from the Kancamagus Highway 1.8 miles to the Cedar Brook Trail. The trail has a gentle grade the entire length.

Cedar Brook Trail: From the Hancock Notch Trail, we will follow the Cedar Brook Trail 0.7 miles to the Hancock Loop Trail. Cedar Brook Trail also has a gentle grade, with five stream crossings.

Hancock Loop Trail: Actually this is referred to as a lollipop trail. It rises gently (600 feet) for 1.1 miles to the trail split. To South Hancock the trail rises 0.5 miles (1000') to the summit. To North Hancock, the trail runs 1.4 miles between the two peaks and rises and falls gently over three small false summits. We complete the loop by descending a steep 0.7 miles to the trail split and then the 1.1 mile gentle grade back to Cedar Brook Trail.

Neither peak affords great views from their wooded summits, but as you climb you glimpse many familiar peaks around you, and the views you get give you the challenge of trying to figure out which mountains you have in sight. There is a panoramic view towards the west and northwest from the lookout on North Peak and a side path leads left 40 yards to a fine view south to the Sandwich Range and Osceola.
