Owl's Head - Saturday, August 26
We've organized a small group to visit the recently relocated summit. There's room for a few more to visit the Pemi Wilderness and join us in reaching the true summit. This is a long day but a moderate hike with most of the elevation gain on the slide. Round trip is 18 miles, just 2,850' elevation gain, and a book time of 11 hours. Optional if the group wishes, is a one hour, easy bushwhack to save time and miles. After the hike we will have food, drink, and joy at the Woodstock Station!
As always, kindly let me know if you are joining us.
We did the bushwhack from Black Pond through the mostly open hardwood forest to the Lincoln Brook trail as it starts to turn North. We ate lunch on the old summit location, rested, then bushwhacked the 1/4 mile to the new relocated summit. Success! On the return we bushwhacked beside Franconia Brook and stopped at the wonderful falls. A big hike for 68 year old Arnie, continuing his quest for the 48 since 1960. Just as big a hike for Emily, Dave, Van, Andy, Graham, Sam, Doug, ghostdog and me!
