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.

I'm an "alumni leader" for the Family Outings group. I led ski, camping and hiking trips for many years until my son "aged out" but I still love hanging out with kids and sharing my joy in all things outdoorsy with kids and parents alike. I also love to cook for groups and get folks together over the prep table.

Eddy Luttmer

I was the long time chair of the family outings committee and led dozens of trips over the years before my kids "aged out". I love to play outside - especially on XC skis, in a solo whitewater canoe or on my sailboat and I thoroughly enjoy teaching kids (and adults).
