Comments
Comments: One of the Girls With Pearls suggested the Belknap Range for Ladies' Hiking Weekend 22. Most of us had never hiked there before and we were quite impressed. There are so many options for trailheads, trails, peaks, views, and routes. From Gunstock summit, we backtracked to the part of the Blue Trail that goes back to the parking lot at the top of Carriage Road; well, other than two hikers who descended via the chairlift and waited for a ride. I was hoping to go on to Mt. Rowe, but was outvoted in favor of swimming and kayaking/canoeing in Lake Winnepesaukee in the afternoon. Yes, that was good too.
