The next Maine A.T. Land Trust community hike will be up to West Baldpate in Grafton Notch on the A.T.! We will meet in the parking area below Old Speck in Grafton Notch State Park at 9am this Saturday January 19th. This is an up-and-back hike on the Appalachian Trail, with a distance each way of 3.1 miles (6.2 miles total). The terrain is rugged and this is a strenuous hike that is a bit less strenuous than others in the area due to the shorter distance. We will not be attempting to climb East Baldpate which is much more challenging in the winter. If the trail has been broken out and we make good time, we will stop at Table Rock on the return hike.
Snowshoes and traction aids (Microspikes, Hillsounds, etc.) are required for this hike. Higher portions of the A.T. on West Baldpate tend to be icy. You must RSVP by using the form below or contacting us. The hike will be weather dependent – there is a snowstorm in the forecast which we are monitoring, but it is several days out.
Here’s some information on the trail and Grafton Notch State Park:
