Early Morning Leaf Peeping: Doublehead Hike October 12th
Location: Meet at the meet at Doublehead Trailhead on Thompson Road off of Route 113. This trail is located on the Doublehead Preserve which is owned by the Squam Lakes Conservation Society whose mission is to preserve the unique quality and character of the Squam Lakes watershed for future and present generations.
Registration: Space is limited to 10 people. Registration required. https://squamlakes.org/node/212
This Week's Program: Who doesn't love a chilly, crisp, fall morning hike? Join the Squam Lakes Association for a hike up to Doublehead Mountain (2,158’ summit) via the Doublehead Trail. This moderately intense, 3-mile hike will begin at sunrise. Once we reach the summit, we’ll have time for a snack, warm drinks and of course photos as we take a break on the Doublehead ledge, which offers some of the best views of the Squam Range especially this time of year with the autumn colors.
What to Bring: Hikers should come prepared with weather-appropriate hiking gear (lots of layers, rain gear, and extra socks/shirts/hats/etc.), headlamp, snack, and water. A thermos of something warm to drink might be nice too. Bring trekking poles if you’d like.
Audience: All ages are welcome, but this hike can be strenuous—moderately steep stretches are intermixed with relatively flat sections. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
