Wildcats via the Wildcat Ridge Trail

Trip dates: Sunday, September 15, 2019 12:00 AM

Join us for a hike of Wildcat Ridge and summit its 5 peaks named A, B, C, D and E. Only peaks A and D are included in the NH Four Thousand Footer list as summits B, C and E lack the 200-foot minimum topographic prominence. Our plan, however, is to summit all 5 peaks and, weather permitting, experience fantastic views of the northern Presidentials from the ridge as well as views of Carter Dome Mountain, Carter Notch Hut and the Carter Lakes from Wildcat A. This approximate 8.5-mile hike with 3,200' of elevation gain will require a car spot and will be hiked at a moderate pace.
