This hike is part of the Young Members Couch to 4k Program https://regi.amcboston.org/event/2360 which is a series of hikes intended to introduce participants to the basic skills and knowledge required for safe and fun outdoor experiences. Priority will be given to the program participants. Non-program participants will only be approved if there is spot available.
Join the leaders for a half day hike to Mount Major (1786') in Alton, NH. If it's a clear day, we will have fantastic views of Lake Winnipesaukee and the surrounding area from the summit. On our way up, we'll encounter beautiful wildflowers. We will make our way up via the Boulder Loop and will descend via the Major Straightback Link, Brook Trail, and Mount Major trail for a total of 4 miles and 1150 feet of elevation. The pace will be moderate and we'll take plenty of breaks.
