What is your experience with the NH 4000-footers: How many have you hiked, which have been your favorites, what were your biggest challenges?

I have hiked all the 4000 footers and many of them twice. I think my favorite hike was Waumbec when the temperatures were well below zero and the new snow was sticking to everything. It was definitely a winter wonderland.

What are your hiking goals?

My goal is to complete the list again this year and get my husband infected with the hiking bug.

Do you hike all seasons?


What hikes would you like to see posted?

Would love to see some backpacking hikes for the summer.

Are you interested in leading your own hikes or events?



I hiked the AMC's 4000 Footers List last year, and had such fun doing it, I would like to hike the list every year.
