Mount Cabot is a 4,170 foot mountain located in Berlin, NH in Coos County, New Hampshire. The mountain is the tallest mountain in the Pilot Range of the White Mountains and has a wooded summit. It is the northernmost 4,000 footer mountain in NH. It has the fifth highest prominence of all the NH mountains. Mount Cabot can be hiked as a scenic loop hike with The Bulge and The Horn, all on the New England Hundred highest hiking list. The Horn is also on the 52 with a View list.
There will be a gear check for this hike at the trailhead. If you don't have the gear, you will not be allowed to join the hike. No exceptions! I also hike at a moderate pace, or under 2 miles per hour. So, if you're looking to go as fast as possible or have difficulty staying together as a group, I do not recommend this hike for you.
1) I am not a guide and this is not a service - I expect you to be fully prepared with the gear listed below and the mindset that you could get yourself out of trouble if needed.
2) We stick together - this is a group event, so if you feel that you are not flexible in working as a team, this will not be a good hike for you.
3) We will follow COVID guidelines and wear masks during carpool and on the trail when social distancing cannot be maintained. Do not show up if you do not agree to the COVID guidelines.
4) Parking is limited, so non-carpoolers will be limited. Please do not ask me to open additional spots. If you lose out on a spot, then I suggest you post a hike.
5) Showing up without registering on Ridj-it with a profile and then actually signing up for the trip is a safety hazard and will get you banned. Do not message me to join in any alternative manner.
Please answer the following questions before/when you join.
1. When was your last hike? How many miles was it? How much elevation gain?
2. What does your weekly exercise routine look like? If you don't have one and also haven't hiked recently, please do not sign up.
3. Do you have all of the gear marked as required below? If not, please do not join, and you will be turned away at the trailhead or carpool if you show up without the necessary items. There will be a gear check for this hike at the trailhead
