Mount Pemigewasset is a 2,557 foot mountain located in Lincoln, NH right off I-93. It is also known as Indian Head. The mountain is on the 52 with a view hiking list, because it is under 4,000 feet in elevation and offers incredible views from the bare open summit.

Expectations

This hike is good for anyone new to winter hiking who has taken the winter hiking class or equivalent. Additionally, if you have all of the required gear and have 3-season hiking experience, you may also attend. This trip is limited in the number of non-carpoolers who can join since our community is based on accessibility. Don't ask to increase the number of NCPs, because I won't. Please write your experience once you join if your Ridj-it profile does not have an extensive history. You must do aerobic exercise regularly, but this will not be a killer hike since we're looking at 3.5 miles or so with 1,430 ft elevation gain - very doable for people with hiking experience (not walking, hiking). I love questions - please ask me if you have any because everyone who's prepared deserves to have a great day outside.
