Join us for a 10-mile round trip hike, with 3530' elevation gain, to the 4,700' peak of Mount Carrigain, one of the AMC New Hampshire 4000 footers. This will be a moderately strenuous hike with an exposed ridge near the peak and 360-degree views from the fire tower! Weather permitting, spectacular views of the Pemigewasset Wilderness, the Hancocks, and most of the AMC 4k's will be waiting. Plan on a leisurely 1.5-2mph rate. This trip can be combined with the 14 July Tripyramids hike, contact Joe about accommodations ($5/person/night).
Joe is one of the Boston Chapter's most experienced and active trip leaders - his summit visits number in the quadruple digits. Included among the many outings he leads each year for the Chapter's Hiking/Backpacking Committee are the single-day Presidential Range traverse on the summer solstice, and the Map & Compass course in the fall.
