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 approximately 6 hours.
Bob is a long time hiker, recently completed his 48, and is currently working on his 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.
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.
