Mt. Chocorua - Ledge Trails and Classic Loop Hike

Trip dates: Saturday, June 23, 2018 12:00 AM

Join fellow Young Members hikers as we ascend Mount Chocorua (3500') for some of the best views in the White Mountains! This loop trip begins on the popular Piper trail, and continues via fun scrambles up Nickerson and Carter Ledges to Middle Sister trail and the scenic summit of Middle Sister. After enjoying Middle Sister's open ledge views, we will continue up the Piper Trail to the summit of Mt. Chocorua with the 360 degree views for which it is famous. We will then descend via Liberty/Hammond/Weetamoo trails before re-joining the Piper Trail to complete the 9.5 mile loop. This hike features approximately 3000 feet of elevation gain and is appropriate for those who are comfortable with rock scrambles and a moderate to moderate/fast pace. This trip is cross-listed with the Hiking/Backpacking Committee.
