Mount Shaw's Fall Colors

Saturday, October 10, 2020 12:00 AM

Mount Shaw is a gem on the 52 WAV list as the highest peak in the Ossipee Range at 2,990 ft with incredible views of Lake Winnipesaukee to the south and the Sandwich Range to the north! This region is scheduled to be in or near peak foliage so be ready to take some great photos during our 7.7-mile loop in the woods maintained by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust. We will summit Mt. Shaw directly and descend over Black Snout and Tate Mountain, gaining 2,450' of elevation. The Shaw summit is shared by snowmobiles in the winter and therefore widely accessible.
