The MWC hiking group had a clear, brisk day to take an invigorating hike of the snowy trails at Page Pond and Forest on Wednesday, February 9, 2024. They completed the 2 mile loop trail, which is part of the 763-acre forest in Meredith. There are seven popular trails of varying lengths from which to choose. Lots of wildlife, waterfalls and streams; depending upon the season.
It’s just great to get outside in the winter to experience snowshoe/micro-spike hiking on these trails. If you are a current MWC member and would like details on upcoming hikes, let us know. It’s always an enjoyable and rewarding time.
LOCKES HILL TRAIL
The MWC Hiking Group hiked Lockes Hill Trail in Gilford, NH.
The MWC ladies strapped on their snow boots, snowshoes and crampons and headed into the snowy woods for their hike of Mt Waukewan. It was a 1.7 mile loop trail in Meredith. Typically an easier trail, the recent snow on the ground coupled with the new snow falling brought on a few challenges. However, the peacefulness of getting into the woods on such a glorious winter day could not be beat.
Take a look at the calendar for upcoming hiking dates. If you are a MWC member and would like to be added to the MWC hiking group’s, let us know. You will then receive email updates on each hike.
The MWC Hiking Group’s word of the day was out of Tom Brady’s playbook - “agility”. When there was a change in hike leadership, smaller group size and a snowfall the night before, the group pivoted. The hike changed from being Bennett Rd Hike to Mt Katherine. It was a 3.3 mile loop trail in Tamworth, NH that went through pastures, up to a viewpoint and then by a babbling brook. The hike provided an invigorating start to the day.
The group doesn’t let little things stop them from being outdoor enthusiasts!
