Join us for an early fall hike up Mts Whiteface (4,020') and Passaconaway (4,043') - two peaks on the NH Four Thousand Footer list. This strenuous, approximate 12-mile loop hike will involve some significant scrambling up the open ledges on the Blueberry Ledge trail from where, weather permitting, we will be treated to stunning views of NH's Lakes Region. Expect a 9-hour, moderately-paced hike and an elevation gain of around 3,850 ft. Participants are expected to have recent previous experience of summiting NH 4,000 footers or equivalent mountains.
