Baldpate – West Peak

February 19, 2017 from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm

Free
What West Baldpate looks like in warmer times.

THIS EVENT IF FREE AND OPEN TO ALL.  In honor of President’s Day – since presidents can be bald – our upcoming Next Century Hike will be to the summit of West Baldpate Mountain in Grafton Notch State Park.  We will meet in the A.T. parking lot on the left side of Route 26 at 9am on Sunday, February 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 because we are not that hardcore.

Snowshoes and traction aids (Microspikes, Hillsounds, etc.) are required for this hike.  There has been significant snowfall and the higher portions of the A.T. on West Baldpate tend to be icy.  You must RSVP for this hike by using the form below or contacting us.  The hike will be weather dependent in terms of driving conditions, but we will not cancel is due to low temperatures.

Here’s some information on the trail and Grafton Notch State Park:
