Saturday is looking like a solid hiking day at 72 degrees and half sun half clouds! We'll be hiking Doublehead - a 4.4 mile trail in Sandwich NH (Squam lake region) with an elevation gain of 1450 feet. If we're feeling up for it, we can also drop by West Rattlesnake, a small peak directly on our way back. Both mountains have clear views of the gorgeous lake.


We'll be hiking at a moderate pace, with multiple stops along the way, and a long one (1+ hr) at the main peak to enjoy ourselves and take in the sights. This is where we can lounge out and soak in some much needed quiet time in nature.


If you are looking to go fast, not take your time enjoying the scenery, or go off on your own, this is not the hike for you!


Though we won't be trail running, you should understand that this gets steep in parts and there is a bit of scrambling to do. Hiking footwear with good traction is required for this trip.


You need to be able to hike around 1.5 miles/hr. Please make sure you can do it, as it won't make sense to keep the whole group back for the day for one person and we will have to split up. Do not sign up if you can't handle this one.


Should be a great day - can't wait!


Required items:


Hiking footwear with good traction


1-2 liters of water


Multiple layers of clothing (can get breezy at the top)


Lunch/snacks


Optional items:


Rain jacket


Hat/sunglasses
