Mt. Whiteface and Mt. Passaconaway Loop Hike

Trip dates: 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. This is a great hike for those that are working on their 4,000 footer list. We will start early for this hike so that we have full use of day light. The traditional loop comprises the following trails: Blueberry Ledge Trail, Rollins Trail, Dicey's Mill Trail, Walden Trail and Wonalancet Trail. This trip is for individuals who have been out a few times this year and have recent experience with similar distance hikes in the Whites.
