The hike:
Ideal for the beginner or intermediate hiker! This mountain is the lowest 4000'er at 4003'. I prefer the approach from the Tripoli (pronounced triple-eye) Road. There are some views along this trail, and the woods seem more attractive. We'll meet, gear up, and be ready for a 8:30 am start at the Mt Tecumseh Trailhead. We'll get the views at the top on the Sosman Trail!
Directions:
I-93 to exit 31, right on to Tripoli (eye) Road, the pavement turns to gravel in about 2 miles. About 5.5 miles on this road is the trailhead parking area, about .4 mile east of East Pond Trail
Notes:
Crampons should be brought on each hike now through May '07. Cold weather/wind gear is required. This hike is round trip: 6.2 miles, 2,600 feet of elevation gain, and has a book time of 4 hours, 30 minutes. Make new friends, meet old friends!
