Leave your mark on the mighty Hancocks. North and South Hancock provide great views of the Osceolas as well as Franconia and Crawford Notch. The 9.1 mile route can be viewed here and will be 2,600ft of elevation gain.



If you exercise regularly doing cardio (or have experience hiking), this jaunt is rated as intermediate. We will be hiking at a moderate pace, or a little 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. However, you must exercise regularly doing cardio - please do not join otherwise.



Additional expectations

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) Relax - it's summer, and we have time on the trail when starting early in the morning.

4) 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.

5) Parking is limited, so non-carpoolers will be limited.

6) 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?

3. Do you have all of the gear marked as required below?



Required Gear

1) Hiking boots or trail runners (not regular tennis shoes)

2) 2 - 3 liters of water

3) Sandwich and food

4) Electrolytes

5) Electronic or physical maps of the hike (as included above) - don't show up without access to a map. I don't mind if you can't read it 100%, but showing up without one expecting me to guide you is a massive no no and I'll ask you to leave since you could otherwise pay me $200 for guiding you

6) Hat, sunglasses, bug spray, and SPF protection

7) Athletic clothing



If you are unsure as to whether this is the right hike for you, please post your question on the Ridj-it wall on the Ridj-it website! Others may have the same question, so you will be doing others a favor by being curious.



After the hike, we will be going out for dinner if time permits. Need to recover some of that energy, and celebrate summiting two 4000 footers.
