A few questions on Mount Shaw.
Hello again, fellow hikers. I've got a few questions about a hike I'm considering for tomorrow. I had hoped to get my dad to try one of the Presidentials, with that lovely new snow, but he doesn't seem to feel like undertaking something like that. So now, I'm considering biking to Mount Shaw. It's a mountain that I've wanted to do for a while, but never have. It's also one that isn't listed in the AMC book. Kevin mentioned it a while ago, but I remember little about it.
My questions are:
1. Where's the trailhead nearest Somersworth, NH? Distance isn't really a problem, but I'd still like to keep it as reasonable as possible. I'm hoping to not have to bike more then eighty miles tomorrow.
2. How long is the trail?
3. And is it worth the climb? I hate getting to the top of a mountain and not being able to see over the trees.
4. What's the shortest trail? Call me a pansy if you want, but I'd like to shave off distance where I can. :)
