MODERATE HIKE--> MT. CRAWFORD

This group is for hikers 50-70+(most of us are 55-65)  who haven't given up on their love of hiking and being in nature despite their age or level of physical conditioning. We hike at a pace 50% slower than the AMC Trailguide book time. Hike ratings: easy,easy/moderate, moderate, advanced moderate,moderate/strenuous, strenuous,very strenuous. On the home page,if you click on the PAGES button there is a hike rating system which explains the wait list.

We start as a group,we hike as a group and we end as a group. If you think you may not be able to keep up with the group, do not carpool

There are three other hiking Meetup groups if you want a faster pace or more challenging hikes (The New England Hiking Meetup, 4 Seasons Hiking Group, New England Over 40 Hiking Group). The hiking Meetup group, (Fellowship Of The Tortoise) does easier,slower paced hikes than  this group.  Our goal is to stay fit while enjoying the camaraderie of hikers who have similar skills and goals. If you click on the PAGES button on the home page,there is a Summer Hiking Gear List. This is a dog free hiking group. Everybody must join the group and have a picture up to be on a hike.

Trailhead: Take I93 North to Exit 35, continue north to Route 302. Make right turn onto 302, continue past AMC Highland Center & The Wiley House. The trailhead is 5.6 miles past the Wiley House on the left hand side. We will be hiking the Davis Path to the summit of Mt. Crawford (3,119'). Extensive views of the Presidential Range from the summit. 5 miles round trip, 2,100' elevation gain, AMC book time 3.35 hours, 5-6 hours estimated time for our group.
