Evening Hike - Pawtuckaway State Park - South Mountain

Join us on an evening hike to South Mountain in Pawtuckaway State Park.  South Mountain has a great tower for viewing.  On a clear day you can see the Seacoast.

We will meet at Riverside Park on Route 27 across from the Pines Restaurant and caravan or car pool to the intersection of Reservation Road and Tower Road in the park.

The hike to the tower only takes around 45 minutes,  however, it will be a steady climb to the peak and a steep climb down.    We will be returning to the cars after sunset so please bring a headlamp or flashlight.   We'll walk the dirt road back after descending the summit so it will be easier walking as it gets dark.

Please note that Reservation Road is a dirt road and there is no parking area.  Parking is along the road.   Please bring water and a snack. Please be prepared for walking around rocks, roots and wet areas and wear appropriate footwear.  Walking poles may be helpful, as well as bug repellent.

Rain cancels this event.  Please check the website prior to leaving in case of cancellation. Please call me with any questions, at 603.682.8438.

    Forecast looks much better. What I love about New England, if you don't like the weather, wait and it will change.

    The forecast is showing 30% chance of showers during the time we will be walking. At this time, we are still planning on going.
