Hike the Carters

Trip dates: Saturday, July 28, 2018 12:00 AM

Come and spend the day hiking to the summits of Middle Carter (4,610 ft) and South Carter (4,430 ft). Although these are wooded summits, each offers its own overlook with beautiful views of the surrounding peaks (weather permitting). This 11-mile near-loop hike is aimed at experienced hikers who are prepared for ~3,800 ft of elevation gain and a moderate pace of 1.5-2 mi/hr. Participants should expect steep, but manageable terrain, at times and should have recently completed at least one hike of 9+mi and 3,000+ft elevation gain. The duration of the hike will vary depending on the trail conditions and the ability of our group. A short card spot will be required to complete the loop. Join us on this excursion for good times and good company!
