Hike: Mount Isolation #[masked]ft (Advanced)
Early Start !!! 6am
Hike Description: The group will climb Mount Isolation at 4004 feet of elevation. The hike begins at the Glen Boulder Trailhead. The Glen Boulder trail intersects with the Davis Path which leads to the summit of Mount Isolation. We return by going down Rocky Branch trail. We will be car spotting. Because this is a very advanced hike, considering both the total elevation gain and the hike time, participants are required to have recently completed multiple advanced hikes.
Elevation Gain: Approximately 3800 feet
Difficulty Level: Advanced
Time: 8:35 hours (Book Time)
Total Distance: 13.3 miles
Directions: Take Route 16 North to the south end of the parking area for Glen Ellis Falls on the west side of NH 16, 0.7 miles south of the AMC Pinkham Notch Camp.
Carpool Info: Should be worked out before here on the message board.
Weather: A weather decision will be made by 9:00 PM on the day before the hike! If the hike is cancelled I will post a message on this page and also send an e-mail to the address you have on file with Meetup so please check before you depart.
Equipment: Hikers should bring ample water and food for a full day of hiking. Waterproof rain jacket (with hood). Fleece Jacket & Hat. Headlamp with extra batteries. We will need snowshoes. Checked the trail reports from 5/12, and it was reported that snowshoes are still necessary.
Trip Planning & Research:
I did my research using the Appalachian Mountain Club's "White Mountain Guide", trail maps, and the Internet. You need to become self-reliant by becoming familiar with the route, terrain, and potential hazards since you are ultimately responsible for your own safety.
