We will meet at the Greely Pond trailhead at 10:30am and hike in 2.2 miles (with minimal elevation gain) to lower Greely Pond. We will then use the remaining daylight to build snowsheltrs and try to stay warm.
Directions to Greely Pond trailhead.
Take Exit 32 off I-93 and follow Kancamagus Highway (Rt. 112) East for 9.7 miles.
Turn into a small parking area on the right-hand side of the road. This turn is after Big Rock Campground (which is on the left) but before the hairpin turn at Hancock Overlook. If hiking in the winter, be careful to avoid the cross-country ski parking area for Greeley Ponds which is 0.2 mile before the hiking lot.

I will be in a grey Audi A4.
(If the parking lot is full, there is additional parking at the top of the hairpin turn).
Please use the winter backpacking gear list to make sure you bring everything you need.
Bring warm (-20F) sleeping bags, tents and shovels!
Snowshoes are a good idea as well.
