Mt. Whiteface and Mt. Passaconaway Loop Hike

Saturday, August 4, 2018 12:00 AM

Let's enjoy the Sandwich Range with a challenging clockwise loop hike deep in the White Mountains to two wooded summits but with ledges and various viewpoints along the route that make this hike well worth the effort. This is a moderately paced hike to the summits of Mt. Whiteface and Mt. Passaconaway. We will be hiking a classic loop across BOTH 4000 footers. The loop distance is about 11.5 miles with 4350' of elevation gain. Expect a long day, this hike will take about 8-9 hours to complete, if not longer.
