Belknap and Gunstock Mtn Hike

Sunday, May 2, 2021 12:00 AM

Are you ready for a day trip up to NH, and get a little more vertical than we have in Eastern MA? Come join Barbara and Jim on this hike in the Belknap range that has great views of Lake Winnipesauke. We'll hit Gunstock and Belknap Mtns, and also check out beautiful and secluded Round Pond while we're out. The route we have in mind is 8.8 miles and roughly 2,400 feet of vertical gain and does have some sections of rock scrambling on it, so we're hoping you've done one or two warm up hikes this spring before attempting this one.
