Location: Meet at the SLA, located at 534 US Rt. 3 in Holderness. Click Here for a Google Map. We will head to West Rattlesnake 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 two 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. Take the trails less traveled to get the amazing view from West Rattlesnake for a hike a little over 3 miles. We will walk along Rt. 113 for a short distance to get to the Undercut Trail then hike up a steep rock ledge on the Ramsey Trail, down the steep Pasture Trail, back up part of the Col Trail to the Ridge Trail to West Rattlesnake. After soaking up the views we'll head down the well traveled Old Bridle Path. 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.
