A Chili Climb Up Cotton – Squam Lakes Association
January 19 @ 9:00 am - 2:30 pm
Cold weather climbers rejoice, for another guided hike from the Squam Lakes Association draws nigh! Come join Lakes Region Conservation Corps members Paul and Nikka as they take a treacherous trek up the steep slopes of Cotton Mountain, enjoy a warm chili lunch, and loop around along pleasant wooded trails, maybe even checking out an old graveyard along the way!
Be warned that the hike will be a bit difficult in the initial ascent, which is 0.7 miles up a steep trail, but we’ll be sure to work in plenty of breaks as needed. After reviving ourselves at the summit and taking in the views, we’ll continue on to the summit of Livermore for a lunch break, and then descend via the Prescott trail and take the gentle slopes of Old Highway back down to NH-113, where it is a quarter-mile road walk back to the parking area. In total, this loop is about 3.5 miles in distance. Timing is flexible and may take a little longer than planned (or be shorter) depending on weather conditions and pace of the group.
Registration is required. Space is limited to 10 people.
