Yea, I try to stay away from those crowds. Never did Chocorua because I always thought it would be to crowded. Maybe I'll give it a try this year.

Also want to do Moosilaukee again. Did a 10 mile hike there last year and it was perfect.

Have you tried the hiking trails around Waterville Valley? What's really cool is that there are a number of different trailheads (10-12??) all within a 1 mile radius of the center of the village.

I pulled the following information off Waterville Valley ski area's website:

My son and daughter recently hiked The Scaur, which is off Livermore Road via The Kettles Path in Waterville Valley. As my husband says about this hike in particular, "1 hour hike and you get a lot of bang for the buck!"[/quote]
I haven't done any up at Waterville. Although a friend recommended Osceola. I'll check that out on Google Earth tonight. Also: now that someone mention Chocorua, maybe I'll put both of them on my, "hikes for 08 list.
Also want to do a special hike on Mt. Washington this year.
A friend of mine helped rescue two kids up there in the winter of 82 and it was an un-believable story of hardship and rescue. I have the directions to the exact spot where they found the kids held up under a boulder. One lost a leg and hand, another lost a foot and part of hand to frostbite.

Anyway, I've got the story and maps, and it turns out they were only a couple miles from the AMC hut at pinkham notch in an area called the great gulf.

We just hiked the Flume today and it was beautiful. You have to pay to hike, but we don't mind giving a boost to state parks now and then. My 3 year old did the whole 2 mile hike, up and down.

I hiked Mt Cardigan (I think it was that one) long ago with my girl scout camp! we spent the night in the watch tower on top.

Did you know that the second most climbed mountain in the world is Mt Monadnock?! wow. I did that with girl scouts, too.

Haven't gone climbing in years, but one of my favorites back in the day was Zealand Falls. There is an AMC hut on the way to the summit, and I still remember that I had the very best bowl of veggie/barley soup of my entire life at that hut. If you've got a couple of days, check your AMC trail guide, and try to do Thoreau Falls and Zenith Falls as a loop. Somewhere along this trail I remember a suspension footbridge, of course I don't remember the trail names, but it made for a nice weekend hike/climb.

For an easy hike (less than 1/2 mile in) and nice pictures, Sabbaday Falls is a nice place to have lunch a little off the beaten path. If you don't want all the crowds at Rocky Gorge, this might be just the place...

3Year old heh. he/she must had had a gret time too. There's a couple other good trails around here for younsters. One is the penisular tril at the Wellington State Park in Bristol on Newfound Lake. It's a mile long loop on level ground that follows the shoreline, and another one is the nature trail at Mt. Cardigan. I like to snowshoe them in the winter.

Mt. Cardigan is one of my favorites. It's just about in my back yard and I do it 6-7 times a year. There is a wilderness cabin on top that you can rent overnight called "High Cabin" that is very popular. I actually like Mt. Cardigan better in the winter for some reason.
