Family/HB Mount Morgan & Mount Percival Loop Hike, Holderness, NH

Trip dates: Saturday, May 6, 2017 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Join Family Outings and H/B to hike the Mount Morgan (2220')/Mount Percival (2212') loop (~ 5.3 miles; 1575 feet of elevation gain). This hike is appropriate for kids and adults ages 8+ with some hiking experience on open rocky ledges. We will hike open ledges, cliff tops, rock scrambles and possibly some small caves. We will not be climbing the ladders section of the trail due to its difficulty. The path we will be taking is moderate to steep.

We will start and end at the Mount Percival Trailhead. We will take the Morgan-Percival Connector, Mount Morgan Trail, Crawford-Ridgepole Trail, and Mount Percival Trail. We will hike at a moderate pace enjoying the views and lunch on Mount Percival. Total outing time, including lunch and breaks, should be about 5 - 6 hours.

Dangerous weather conditions cancel. By now, the snow has melted on both peaks so that micro spikes are not required. We do require, however, hiking boots with good traction. Registrar/Leader Peter Monnes,


  • "Fantastic vistas reward you. Magnificent views from both Morgan and Percival"
  • " The ladders and the caves are exciting, an adventure".
  • "The mile or so between peaks is a fun boulder walk".

We will meet at the Mount Morgan trailhead in Holderness, NH along Route 113. From I-93: From I-93, take Exit 24 and follow Rt. 3 South about 4.6 miles to Holderness. Turn left onto NH Rt. 113 and follow it northeast for ~ 5.6 miles to Morgan Trailhead o
