Mount Shaw is a gem on the 52 WAV list as the highest peak in the Ossipee Range at 2,990 ft with incredible views of Lake Winnipesaukee to the south and the Sandwich Range to the north! This region is scheduled to be in or near peak foliage so be ready to take some great photos during our 7.7-mile loop in the woods maintained by the Lakes Region Conservation Trust. We will summit Mt. Shaw directly and descend over Black Snout and Tate Mountain, gaining 2,450' of elevation. The Shaw summit is shared by snowmobiles in the winter and therefore widely accessible. We plan on maintaining a moderate pace. With stops for views and lunch, you should plan on 6+ hours.
Bob is a long time hiker, currently working on his 48, Winter 48, and 52 WAV lists. When he's not on the trails, you might find him running, paddling his kayak, or trying to keep up with his wife and son on his mountain bike.
Eric has found the trail after 30 years on the ocean. He's working on his NE67 and NH highest list(s) but also really enjoys the low and local trails in northeastern MA and backpacking to get the most out of the mountains
