Waterville Valley Athletic & Improvement Association (much easier to call it WVAIA) is offering two guided hikes in June for members.
Saturday, June 17
Steady ascending makes this hike MORE DIFFICULT. When was the last time you hiked Tecumseh? Things have changed. An enthusiastic adopter has installed lots of stone stairs [sparking an on-line controversy!], and someone cut back the trees on the summit. It’s now a big view hike as the photo below reveals—that’s Mount Washington peeking its peak over Mister Osceola’s shoulder!

EASY for all but the end, which is MORE DIFFICULT. The Jennings Peak hike will ascend via the Drake Brook Trail. Cut in 1921 as “Drake Valley Trail,” it was closed by logging in the late 1920’s and reopened to the hiking public along old logging roads, and on a new route in its upper section, in 1930. This delightful tramp passes by the old Josselyn’s mill site early on the route.
Please join WVAIA hike leaders Brenda Conklin and Beth Madden for these two great hikes. Meet at the Town Square Gazebo @ 9:00 a.m.
