 Mt. Cabot is the northernmost of the New Hampshire 4,000 footers. The Unknown Pond Trail meets up with the Kilkenny Ridge Trail, over the Horn and The Bulge. These are two mountains on the New England Hundred Highest list.   Pictured above is The Horn as seen from Unknown Pond (3100′). The trail is very gradual and

After hiking Carter Dome on Saturday I decided to hike Waumbek. This hike is considered one of the easiest 4000-footers. It is one of the furthest NH 4000-footers from me so it was good to do while I was in the area. I took the Starr King trail: the shortest trail for an easy hike.

Carter Dome (4832′) lies on the eastern edge of the White Mountains immediately east of the Presidentials. It’s in good company near Middle and South Carter as well as Wildcat Mountain. The forecast called for rain all day and thunderstorms. I had a feeling the weather would change for the better and decided I would

Sunday was number 41 for me (can you believe it!? I can’t either, because I miscalculated before!) My last post was my Presidential Traverse and suddenly I’m at 41 peaks…. Well I have been a little lazy. I never posted about my Garfield/Galehead hike or the Wildcats (from forever ago). Sometimes life gets in the

After getting between four to five hours of sleep Friday night, 4 am came way too early. I knew I had to get ready quick as I had a long day ahead of me. I started a southbound presidential traverse at the Appalachia parking lot on route 2 at 4:45 am. A mile in I

Passaconaway (4043′) and Whiteface (4020′) are two peaks in the Sandwich region of the White Mountain National Forest. Even though both mountains are just over the 4000 foot mark, it is a 11.9 mile hike over very steep and rocky terrain. We started at the Ferncroft parking area- a picturesque setting located off of route

When telling others about my goal to hike the 48 highest peaks in New Hampshire, I get certain reactions. Some people are genuinely interested in my endeavor and are excited to hear about my progress. Others try to relate and tell me their tales of their hiking experience. Some people have a difficult time relating

Mount Moriah (4049 feet) is a deceiving mountain. At 9 miles round trip and one trail up (we took the Carter-Moriah Trail up to the summit), it seemed like it would be an easier 4k hike. We were well prepared, but surprised by the trail. The parking area for the Carter-Moriah Trail is a little

I was lucky enough to have Patriot’s Day off (I’m a teacher in Massachusetts) and planned a hike for the day. I decided on Galehead Mountain (4024 feet). It’s typically a 10.2 mile hike, but about three miles are added to it during the Winter and early Spring before the Gale River Loop Road is

  On March 17th, I completed my final winter hike for the 2012 season. It was an adventure! On our hike, we went up Nineteen Mile Brook and Carter Dome trails to Zeta Pass, then North along the Carter-Moriah trail over both peaks, and down by the North Carter and Imp trails. We took the
