Caribou Mountain Hike

January 7, 2017 from 9:00 am - 5:00 pm



Our second Next Century Hike for this winter will be on Saturday, January 7th at 9am.  We will be heading up Caribou Mountain in the White Mountain National Forest.  While the mountain is not directly on the Appalachian Trail it is on Forest Service land (like much of the A.T. landscape to the south) and there are great views of areas where the trail passes to the west and north.  Plus it is one of our favorite trips!

We will be taking the Caribou Trail from the east trailhead, which is 2.8 miles down Bog Road off Route 2 in West Bethel.  Many guidebooks only describe this trail from the Route 113 side in Evans Notch, so be careful!  The hike is relatively moderate for most of its length and the distance to the summit is 3.1 miles (returning the same way).  We will meet in the parking area past Pooh Corner Farm at the end of bog road.

You must RSVP for this hike through this page or contact us (info@matlt.org or 207-808-2073)!  When entering a Forest Service wilderness area, the limit per group is ten people.  There will be updates on snow conditions in the week prior to the hike.  Snowshoes and/or traction aids will probably be required!
