Sat Feb 25 Winter osceolas New
Join us for a winter hike up to the Osceolas, from Kancamagus Highway. From Greeley Ponds trailhead, we'll hike 3.8 miles up to East Osceola and Mt. Osceola, and return the way we came, for a total of 7.6 miles and 3232 feet of elevation gain. This is a great opportunity to enjoy the winter weather on a beautiful set of peaks! We will (hopefully) enjoy fantastic views from atop Mt. Osceola, weather permitting with relatively little above treeline exposure. This trail is steep and contains a steep chimney and crosses a small slide, both of which may be icy. There is a chimney bypass should conditions not be appropriate. We can anticipate that we will have full winter conditions, so crampons, and previous winter 4k hiking experience is required to participate. We will hike in most weather conditions, so please be prepared with waterproof layers and extra layers to withstand wind or cold temperatures.
