Family Memorial Day Weekend Hike to Mt. Chocorua, Albany, NH (BHP Level 4)

Trip dates: Saturday, May 25, 2019 12:00 AM

Join Boston Family Outings on a BHP (Beginner Hiking Program) Hike up Mt. Chocorua. Chocorua is one of the most photographed mountains in the world, but we're going to do more than just take pictures of it. We're going to hike up the mountain, where we will be greeted with breathtaking 360 degree views of surrounding mountains, lakes, and forests.

We will hike a 7.5 mile loop using the Brook and Liberty Trails and gaining 2,750 feet of elevation. Expect a few steep pitches near the summit, a moderate pace, and time to absorb the views from summit. This summit is justified in being on New Hampshire's' 52 With-A-View List!

Participants will need to bring a trail lunch/trail snacks and appropriate clothing and be physically fit to hike the distance and elevation gain; some previous hiking experience required. Hit the green "Register Now" button to sign up for this amazing hike.
