Ok, it looks like we’re getting closer to being settled on our Mt. Kearsarge New Year’s Day hike. A few folks have given us the thumbs up, so right now we have a team of 5 or 6. Great news! It’s always fun to take up a team. The access roads to the trailheads are closed though, so we’re not yet sure whether we’ll just go up the auto road, or hike into Winslow State Park. Either way will add a few miles, so we’ll wait to see what the weather is like before deciding. If you’re reading this and interested, let us know if you want in on the action!
In the meantime, here’s a trail map of Kearsarge to ponder over.
The auto road is a shorter route up, though not as scenic as coming up the Winslow Park side. The snowshoe up to Winslow, though, would add 7 miles to the route. So, it’ll come down to weather.
