THE NEW HAMPSHIRE
WEEKEND BACKPACKING ADVENTURE
Dates: September 14 - 16, 2018
State: New Hampshire
Maximum Trip Capacity: 7 people
Age Range: 18 - 39
Day 1: Heart of the White Mountains
After leaving the city in the evening, we head north to the little town of Lincoln, nestled in the White Mountains of New England. Depending on time of arrival, we may have time to explore main street.
Day 2: Franconia Notch Sunset
Hiking into the towering mountain range, we quickly leave the mountain pass behind us and head uphill. After passing a mountain lake, we continue ascending until we reach our tentsite for the night, located on a pond at almost 4,000 feet above sea level.
Optional Sunset Hike: An extra 2.8 mile round-trip hike will give you the satisfaction of bagging the highest peak in the range and conditions permitting, magnificent views of the White and Green Mountains at sunset as well.
Day 3: New Hampshire Ski Resort
On this day, we make our way over a couple "mini summits" until we finally reach the top of one of New Hampshire's most storied ski resorts. The cherry on top is that this time period coincides with the usual start of fall foliage season; and this state's colorful displays are often considered some of the best in the world. After taking in the scenery of the surrounding region, we head back downhill and get back to New York City in the evening.
