FAMILY "SHORTER" HIKE/SNOWSHOE A VOLCANO = PAWTUCKAWAY STATE PARK, NOTTINGHAM, NH

Saturday, December 30, 2017 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM

This shorter hike/snowshoe option at Pawtuckaway State Park is intended for somewhat shorter younger legs (eg. younger kids and their families). The Pawtuckaway Mountains are a classic example of an eroded volcanic crater. This hike will take the Round Pond trail, then the Boulder Trail, and looping around Round Pond and back to the parking lot via the Round Pond trail. Loop distance about 3 miles with 200 ft. elevation gain. Conditions likely frozen ground, cold temperatures, possible snow and ice. Snowshoes and light traction (micro-spikes - we have some to lend) required.

West Belknap Loop (B3C)

Saturday, December 9, 2017 12:00 AM

This lovely loop over three small peaks in the Belknap range (Gunstock, Belkap, Piper) provides three chances for views: from the ski slopes of Gunstock, an observation tower on Belknap, and the open ledges of Piper. It also gets one a quarter of the way to a patch for hiking 12 peaks in the Belknap range. And it's under a two hour drive from Boston: hard to beat bang-for-the-buck here.

Trails are moderate, with a few short steep pitches and some rocky bits, but no exposure. We'll cover about 6 mi with 2000' of climb.

Jon finished a round of the New England Hundred Highest just before heading off to the Southwest for four years. He's thrilled to be back in New England and working seriously on the winter 4000-footers. Other fun had in the meantime includes the Pikes Peak Marathon and a rim-to-rim-to-rim run of the Grand Canyon. Goal-oriented but interested in keeping things safe and fun.
