Moriah and Shelburne Moriah in Winter

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Sat March 2, 2019

Join us for an out-and-back hike up Mt Moriah (4,049 ft) and Shelburne Moriah Mountain (3,735 ft) - a total distance of 16.8 miles and an elevation gain of 3,700'. The plan will be to approach from the north via trails that are less used in winter. After summiting Mt Moriah, if time and weather permit, we will continue back along the ridge to the summit of Shelburne Moriah Mountain. On a clear day this hike offers incredible views of the Presidential Range, the Wild River Wilderness, and the rest of the Carter Range. This hike is a strenuous undertaking in winter with potential exposure to wind, whiteouts and a possible mix of snow, ice and rock on the summits. In addition to possessing full winter gear, including winter boots, snowshoes, microspikes, full face protection and multiple layers, participants should be experienced winter hikers.

Mighty Moosilauke (4K) (TW72)

Hiking/Backpacking Date: Sun March 3, 2019

Enjoy the "gentle giant," Mt. Moosilauke. This westernmost of the NH 4000-footers provides great views from the summit ridge, when the weather cooperates. We'll extend our time above treeline with a side trip to the south peak (on the Trailwrights 72 list) for a total of 8.2mi of hiking and 3400' of climb. The group will move at a moderate but relentless pace, with about 3mi exposed to the weather, so previous above-treeline winter experience is a must. This is a great opportunity for those with some experience to have a longer day out in the wind. If conditions are completely unsuited to going above treeline, leaders will choose another hike in the area. Register at REGI link: https://regi.amcboston.org/event/2311.
