Garfield Ridge Trail Fall Adventure

Trip dates: Saturday, October 20, 2018 12:00 AM

Join us for a fall hike along the northern edge of the Pemi Loop. We'll hike in and out through the Gale River and Garfield Trails joined by the Garfield Ridge Trail, with a short road walk back to our cars - for about thirteen miles and 3200 feet in elevation gain. Along the way, we will summit both Garfield and Galehead and hopefully get a little time to enjoy the view from the porch of the Galehead Hut. Will there be foliage left? Snow? Maybe both - join us and see. Either way, you will have a chance to enjoy a section of the Pemi Loop that generally has fewer hikers than some other sections and, if we are lucky, experience some awesome views and fall weather in the Whites. You should have clothing and equipment for a late fall hike, perhaps including microspikes. A more certain weather forecast by Friday will help us to make the call on exact requirements. Expect a steady moderate to fast pace.
