Appalachian Trail through New Hampshire

Let's go hike the Appalachian Trail all the way through New Hampshire, from Hanover (home of Darmouth College) at the Vermont border all the way to Gorham (the last town and road crossing before entering Maine). Approximately 144 miles.

We will leave Friday, August 10 and drive to Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, headquarters of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy. On Saturday, August 11 we will take part in the 75th Anniversary festivities and parade.

On August 12 we'll finish traveling to Hanover and will spend the day there touring the college and town.

This will be our tentative hike schedule:

Mon 13th Hanover to Moose Mountain 11.9
Tue 14th Moose Mountain to Hexacuba Shelter 17.7
Wed 15th Hexacuba Shelter to Glencliff 14.7
Thur 16th Glencliff to Beaver Brook Shelter 7.9
Fri 17th Beaver Brook Shelter to Eliza Brook Shelter 9.1
Sat 18th Eliza Brook to Franconia Notch 8.8
Sun 19th Franconia Notch to Galehead Hut 13.0
Mon 20th Galehead Hut to Webster Cliffs 16.6
Tue 21st Webster Cliffs to Lake in the Clouds 9.3
Wed 22nd Lake in the Clouds to Osgood Tentsite 10.0
Thur 23rd Osgood Tentsite to Carter Notch Hut 10.7
Fri 24th Carter Notch Hut to Gorham 15.2

Sat 25th shuttle back to Hanover/drive home

At least two and perhaps three nights we'll be staying in AMC huts and need reservations for those. The cost is $95 per night in AMC huts.

New Hampshire is said by some to be the toughest state on the Appalachian Trail, but is also said by many to have the best views, with many miles above treeline.

    Beth (Turtle2) and I leave in the morning (Friday) for Harpers Ferry, WV, where we'll take part in the 75th Anniversary festivities for the Appalachian Trail on Saturday. After that, we drive trail legend "Baltimore Jack" up to his home town of Hanover, New Hampshire on Sunday and hit the trail on Monday. Still room in the car for one more, if anyone's interested. :)

    Okay, toss up between money for the Presidential Inaugural in January and this trip. I have 5 days to make a decision both are on my bucket list... concrete v.s nature/reality OMG...
