Location: Meet at the SLA, located at 534 US Rt. 3 in Holderness. Click Here for a Google Map. We will head to the Cotton Mountain trail head 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 week's hike is a 5 mile loop hike covering Cotton Mountain Trail to Mt. Livermore (via the Crawford Ridge Trail), then down the Prescott Trail to Old Highway trail and then a short road walk back to the Cotton Mountain Trail parking area. The climb up to Cotton Mountain is quite steep but the view is well worth it and the climb down Prescott Trail has gradual switchbacks. The plan is to enjoy lunch on top of Mt. Livermore. 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.
