Hike two of the 52WAV with us on this early winter hike to Mt Avalon and Mt Willard. If the weather cooperates, we'll get the two best views across Crawford Notch from the west. This hike is two connected out-and-back hikes, totaling 6.9 miles with ~2,450 ft of elevation gain. We'll hike at a pace on the slow side of moderate, and anticipate finishing in book time or a little longer, i.e. in 5-6 hours. There is one stream crossing that may not be fully frozen at the time of this hike, and we expect to encounter ice and snow on the trail. This is a good hike for graduates of previous years' winter hiking programs that want to get their gear snowy this year!
Alex enjoys hiking in all seasons. While best known for fast-paced single day, multi-peak mega-hikes and gnarly back country bushwhacks, he will enjoy sharing his love for the mountains just about anywhere, with hikers at all ability levels.
