Rise ‘N Shine Guided Hike to E Rattlesnake
January 22, 2020 @ 6:00 am - 8:30 am
Rise and shine! Join the SLA bright and early for a sunrise hike to the East Rattlesnake viewpoint, accessed via the Butterworth Trail. This program is open to anyone 12 and up who is comfortable hiking a total of 1.6 miles (keeping in mind half of that will be in the dark!). There will be an elevation gain of 695 feet over 0.8 miles to get to the East Rattlesnake summit at 1297’. Participants will meet at the Butterworth Trail trailhead off of Metcalf Road (0.5 miles from NH – 113) before beginning the hike. We will wait for the sunrise to break over the horizon at the viewpoint, overlooking Squam and Winnipesaukee in the distance (projected for 7:13 am). Plenty of warm layers, water, your favorite warm beverage, and snacks are recommended. We will then head back to the parking area via Butterworth Trail.
Registration is required. Space is limited to 12 people.
Ages 12 and up, anyone comfortable doing a 1.6 mile hike with varying steepness (0.8 miles will be hiked in darkness, must be comfortable with this). Children must be accompanied by an adult.
