B group hikes White Ledge Loop, July 19th, 2018

This hike was a pleasant surprise.  It had a good climb to it, some nice open ledges, good views, and an overall winner of a hike.  Definitely add this to your list!  It's one I'd repeat.

In the photo: Jane, John, Shirl, Ginger and Griff, and of course 
I had to get in the shot too!  :)

Dick and Doug went clockwise on the route, crossing from Dicey's Mill trail to Blueberry Ledge via the steep Tom Wiggin trail, and up to Whiteface (pic of Doug), then over the Rollins trail back to Dicey's Mill trail for the final ascent to Passaconaway.
Meanwhile, Ellen and Sharon had started earlier, doing the route counterclockwise. We met on the Rollins Trail.

11 Turtles enjoyed a beautiful day in the Kimball Forest preserve climbing Locke Hill . We ate our lunch in the “ Hall of the Mountain King” aka the stone chairs overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee.  We added a new Turtle today: Terry from Derry!



A Group hikes Tecumseh, July 3rd, 2018

John and Doug hiked Mt Tecumseh on Tuesday July 3. It was hot and muggy the whole way even though the hikers were back down before noon. A small bear was sighted along Tripoli Rd. Tecumseh, at 4003 feet, is the lowest and one of the closest 4000 footers.
