This hike is canceled due to the weather forecast.
Location: Meet at Eastman Brook trailhead off of Route 113 about 6 miles north of Route 3. Click here for a google map. We will carefully cross the street to the Col Trail.
About the Hike: There are four hikes scheduled throughout the month of May in this Squam Ranger series. This is a great opportunity to learn about the Squam Ranger program, meet other folks interested in hiking, and enjoy a day out on the trail. We will meet at Eastman Brook parking lot and then start our hike at the Col Trail trailhead located across the street. Be prepared for this roughly 5 miles roundtrip adventure with some steep sections, great views, and some dirt road walking. We'll stop for snacks and lunch at the top of West and East Rattlesnake Mountains. You'll knock off most of the Col trail and all of the Ridge, Ramsey and East Rattlesnake trails. Hike as much or as little as you'd like. Timing is hard to predict since it depends on the hikers so we may end a bit earlier or go later. Folks are welcome to hike at there own pace as this is not intended to be a guided hike.
Since hikes are weather dependent, we will contact those who have signed up the day before the trip to confirm the plan.
What to Bring: Hikers should bring appropriate clothing, water, snacks and lunch.
