I am heading to NH now to scout out some of the hikes. If you have any change to your plans please let me know via phone [masked]). There will be Labor Day weekend traffic so it could add 30 min to an hour to travel times.
1. no keg, did not get enough interest
2. no organized Mountain Biking, although if you bring a bike I will point you to the trail system.
Below is a repeat of my email from yesterday. Drive safe and see you soon!
Weather looks decent this weekend but we do have a 40% to 50% chance of some rain on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Please bring a rain jacket on all hikes, in some cases we will be at exposed summits and it can be quite cold if you get wet.
I will go up early tomorrow and talk with some rangers about recommended hikes. On Saturday and Sunday we will have 2 hike options - an advanced hike that will likely be 9+ miles and a moderate hike which will be in the 5 to 7 miles range. By the time people get up on friday I will have all hikes planned out.
We did NOT have enough responses to get a keg this weekend so it will be a BYOB weekend. No beer is included.
Here is the schedule
Friday 6pm to midnight - Check-in and BYOB at the Wedeln Ski Club - directions below.
Saturday - 9am - Leave for hikes, please have food, water and all hiking gear ready to go.
