Build or maintain winter hiking skills and experience (or work on your winter 48 summits or grid) with a moderately-paced winter hike to Mt. Waumbek. On the way, we'll tag Starr King (52 with a view). Aimed at previous or current Winter Hiking Program participants, this 7.2 miles, 2900-foot elevation gain hike will offer an opportunity to summit a 4,000 footer in winter with little above-treeline exposure. Previous winter hiking experience, good fitness level, and full winter gear required. Includes option to stay at a local hotel (with a hot tub!) before/after the hike and a post-hike group dinner, both at participant's cost.
Winter Waumbek Hike, overnight stay in Gorham with hot tub!
