Hike: Mount Isolation #[masked]ft (Advanced)
Elevation Gain: Approximately 5050 feet
Difficulty Level: Advanced
Time: 8:30 hours (Book Time)
Total Distance: 12.2 miles
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 the same set of trails, as the Isoluationa and Rocky Trails are still closed due to Hurrican Irene damage. 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.
This hike will be limited to 10 people, but everyone is waitlisted so I can ensure you have the necessary skill required for this hike.
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.
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.
