Guided Hike to Mt. Pemigewasset

September 17, 2015

Ever wonder why Mt. Pemigewasset is called Indian Head?

Still not sure?  Really?

This Saturday, Sept. 19, join WVAIA volunteer hike leader Brenda Conklin for a hike to the 2,557′ summit of Mt. Pemigewasset in Franconia Notch.  This two mile hike (four miles round trip) will ascend from the Mt. Pemigewasset Trail from the trail head near the Flume Visitor Center/Rt. 3, and return via the same route.  The elevation gain is about 1,250′.  The exposed summit affords excellent views.

Meet at the gazebo in Waterville Valley Town Square at 9 a.m. to carpool to the trail head.  Bring water, snacks, and lunch.  The weather forecast looks very good, so it should be a great early fall hike.

WVAIA guided hikes are free.  All volunteer hike leaders are certified in Wilderness First Aid.  Please show your support by making a donation or becoming a member of the nonprofit WVAIA.
