Location: Meet at the SLA, located at 534 US Rt. 3 in Holderness. Click Here for a Google Map. We will head to Algonquin Trail trailhead from SLA.
About the Day: Now that the high heat of summer is behind us, it's time to take out the hiking gear, hit the trail and enjoy the cooler temps. Over the next few months, there will be a hike scheduled each week. This is a great opportunity to learn about the Squam Ranger program, meet other folks interested in hiking, and enjoy a day out on the trail. This hike starts at the Algonquin Trail trailhead located on Sandwich Notch Road and is a 9 mile round trip hike. The first .9 miles follows an old logging road and is fairly mellow, climbs steeply for about 1.8 miles to the top of Black Mountain with will some steep climbs up ledges, and then the trail ascends gradually up to Sandwich Dome (1.8 miles). Hike as much or as little as you'd like. Timing is hard to predict since it depends on the hikers so we may end a bit earlier or go later. Folks are welcome to hike at there own pace as this is not intended to be a guided hike.
Since hikes are weather dependent, we will contact those who have signed up if any changes to plans arise.
What to Bring: Hikers should bring appropriate clothing, water, and food.
