Canceled Meetup

Sandwich Range Overnight Trip

Needs a location


Join us for a backpack of the Sandwich Range! We will be hiking the Tripyramids, Mount Passaconaway, Mt Whiteface, and East Sleeper (NEHH peak). That's FOUR NH 4ks plus a New England Hundred Highest peak!

Trip Summary

On this moderate pace (~2.0 MPH) overnight trip we will hike about 18 miles and climb about 5800 feet.

This event is considered to be ADVANCED because of the pace, distance, and elevation gain. We could alter our plans because of fatigue, weather, and/or other conditions and there is no guarantee that we will complete the entire event as described here (i.e. we might not reach all summits).

The route is still in the works, but I have two routes in mind, either hiking up Pine Bend to North Tripyramid or taking the fun, but challenging route up The North Tripyramid Slide. After the Tri's we will hike over East Sleeper and then find a spot to camp for the night. We will hike approximately 9 miles each day. The next morning we'll hike over Mt Whiteface and end on Passaconaway taking Oliverian Brook Trail to our cars.

**On day one we will need to spot a car at Oliverian Brook Trailhead and drive to the starting trailhead.

During these two days we will be hiking at a moderate pace. This hike is suited for avid peak baggers (those that can handle two days over hiking over difficult terrain) who are looking to become more experienced with backpacking and backcountry camping.

In the next week I will add a link for an overnight packing list.
