Fall Hike - Mt. Cardigan, Orange NH - Sept 30th

posted Sep 27, 2017, 9:14 PM by Westford Pack 100
Welcome back, and to our new Scouts, we are glad to have you aboard.  We'll start this new year with a Pack hike to the summit of Mt. Cardigan in Orange, NH on Saturday September 30.  We'll meet at Cardigan State Park at 10:30 AM for a prompt 11:00 AM start.  Family members are welcome to attend, but please note that this is a strenuous hike and might not be appropriate for young siblings.

This is a great opportunity for the Scouts to fulfill some of their rank advancement requirements.  So, read ahead and plan your adventure.

Please bring with you a filled-out permission slip and give it to Bob Lokuta on-site at Mt. Cardigan.  Also, RSVP via this evite link by September 28 so that we can account for all hikers prior to setting off.

See Mt. Cardigan hike info and other trail description at the following web sites for further information about the park and hike.

We will ascend via the West Ridge Trail and descend via the South Ridge Trail.  Please note the trail ascends about 1,800 vertical feet which is challenging.  We anticipate the entire hike, with a summit lunch and rest to take over 4 hours to complete.  Hiking boots are highly recommended.  Dress and pack for unexpected weather.  Bring plenty of water and lunch/snacks.

Hope you can attend.  Looking forward to seeing Pack 100 Scouts and family on the summit.
