Get Out and Hike! Butterworth-Col Trail Loop

Monday, August 19, 2019 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

Location: Meet at the SLA, located at 534 US Rt. 3 in Holderness. Click Here for a Google Map. We will head to the Butterworth trail head from SLA. 

About the Day: Now that the high heat of summer is almost 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 is approximately a 3.5 mile loop hike covering Butterworth Trail to East Rattlesnake, Ridge Trail to Col Trail back down to Metcalf Rd. and then a road walk back to the Butterworth Trail parking area. The trail climbs moderately to East Rattlesnake, a gradual assent up the Ridge Trail, and a gentle decent down past a beaver swamp with views of the Squam Range on the way back to the road. 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.
