Hit two scenic spots on this high-intermediate hike to the Devil's Hopyard and Roger's Ledge. Roger's Ledge specifically is on the 52 With A View list which means we should be in for some pleasurable sights. Rogers Ledge, a 2965-ft. peak at the northern end of the Kilkenny. This small mountain features a great south-facing cliff that offers wide views over the nearby backcountry and out to several distant ranges. The South Pond gate doesn't open until 10:00 AM, so this is why we're starting a little later. (Not too bad - we get to sleep in!).


This hike is rated as "high-intermediate" because of distance, not so much technical needs. In summation, if you have hiked 6 - 7 miles this summer (in one hike) or if you are a runner/jogger and exercise aerobically on a regular basis, you can do this. Do not make this your first hike in the White Mountains.

Elevation gain: 2,000 ft

Expectations


1) Carpool is limited to two riders per car, so three people total. Please do not fall asleep - keep your driver company.


2) If you're a no-show or cancel last-minute in a predictably flaky fashion, I will not allow you on further trips with me. You're free to attend others' hikes though.


3) You will wear a mask in the case that you are not able to appropriately maintain social distance. No exceptions - do not attend if you can't abide by this. During the hike the expectation is to leave space between others, so be prepared to monitor your proximity.


4) If you find yourself physically unable to finish, that's okay! No shame, and in fact, big respect for knowing your limits. Sometimes people have bad days - it's alright, but have the humility to quit if you know you can't finish at a reasonable pace (~2 average MPH). You will be responsible for guiding yourself back to the parking area if you are unable to finish - do not expect anyone to go with you.


5) Do not attend if you have had COVID symptoms in the past week or two. You will be turned away at the trail head if you look sick.


Again, if you have any questions about this hike, please don't be shy! Just ask on the Ridj-it trip wall and I'll respond as soon as I can.
