Carrigain via Signal Ridge Trail

Trip dates: Saturday, August 17, 2019 12:00 AM

Moderate paced hike from Signal Ridge Trail Head on Sawyer River Road to the summit of Mt Carrigain (4,700'), a 10-mile round trip with 3,300' of elevation gain. Excellent views are available from Signal Ridge and the recently rebuilt fire tower on the summit. A few minor water crossings. This is on an old fire warden's trail, so the grade never gets too steep. Excellent opportunities for swimming at the end of the hike. This is the 12th highest peak in NH, so there is a significant amount of climbing.
