Hike Wildcats

AMC offers COVID conscious opportunities to enjoy the outdoors locally, visit many of our lodges and campgrounds, and join virtual events and activities. Participants of all in-person events should bring and wear face coverings, expect social distancing, and changes to our usual practices. To support contact tracing and hands-free signing of the AMC liability waiver, online registration is required for all in person AMC events.

Trip dates: Saturday, October 10, 2020 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM

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 4000 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 hike is approximate 9 miles with 3,200' of elevation gain.
