December Hike to Mt. Tecumseh

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

Join us for a mid-December hike to Mt. Tecumseh (4,003 feet). Mount Tecumseh is in the Sandwich Range of the White Mountains. It is the shortest mountain on the AMC's official 4,000 footers list. Mt. Tecumseh is named after the leader of the Shawnee Native American tribe. Views to the immediate north include Mt. Osceola, the highest peak in the region. East, across the valley, is the Tripyramid Massif, which includes North Tripyramid and Middle Tripyramid. We will hike from the Waterville Valley Ski Area and will have 2 water crossings. We will climb 2,300 feet of elevation gain over approximately 5 miles, over steep, challenging, rocky terrain. Full Winter gear, including microspikes and snowshoes, is required. Poles are recommended.
