New Hampshire - Mount Pierce

Here it is ladies, the 4000 footer hike!
Disclaimer to speedy hikers: We will be taking this very slowly! I'm asthmatic so that's really my only option, think 1 mile per hour or even slower depending on the group
To those who haven't hiked in the Whites before: I would LOVE to be there for your first 4000 footer! I highly recommend doing some training hikes before then to make sure you're ready for the distance, this hike is strenuous regardless of speed, and I would like all of us to get to the summit together!

The plan is to meet at the Concord, NH park & ride at 7am, from there it takes 1.5hrs to get to the trailhead so you could also meet there at 8:30 (I will need a solid headcount for both locations ahead of time)


Trail Rating: This is a RED on GWH rating scale - strenuous hike, more than 2,000ft elevation gain
Mount Pierce via Crawford Path
Date: August 18th
Time: 7:00 AM
Distance: 6.3 Miles

Location: Crawford Connector Trailhead/Park & Ride Concord, NH (31 Stickney Ave.)
Dogs: Experienced trail dogs only (the rock would be rough on the pads of dogs who have not hiked in the Whites often)
Permits / Passes: $5 cash only parking if you park at the trailhead
AllTrails Track: https://www.alltrails.com/explore/recording/mount-pierce--20
Kids: only kids with plenty of experience hiking
Men: No

To complete this hike, I highly recommend bringing electrolytes, snacks, at least 2 L of water, warmth layers, and your 10 essentials.

While we do plan on hiking very slow, please be sure you are capable of the distance and elevation gain. We’ll be hiking as a group, and nobody will be left behind or forgotten.

Any updates will be posted on the event thread via the pinned post, and I'll update the event description if anything changes!

To complete this hike, you must bring your own water and trail map (we will do a check at the trailhead of each participant). I highly recommend bringing electrolytes, snacks, at least 2 L of water, and your 10 essentials

Since we’ll be at a high altitude, please make sure you bring aspirin or another headache soother, electrolytes, extra water, and I recommend bringing something to help you with nausea – you never know!

This hike is open to experienced hikers only! Due to the length of the hike, it is likely that we will split into 2 or more groups based on pacing. You can also meet up with us at the trailhead and then hike at your own pace if you would prefer. Ideally we would all still meet at one one or more of the summits for a group photo or relaxing hang out but we will determine that at the trailhead prior to starting the hike. You have a few several weeks to train up for this hike but if you are at all concerned about your ability to complete this hike, I would recommend an alternative hike such as Mount Willard (https://www.alltrails.com/trail/us/new-hampshire/mount-willard).

Any updates will be posted on the event thread via the pinned post, and we will update the event description if anything changes!
