Elevation Gain: 1,700 -we need to hike up the road

Difficulty Level: Moderate

HIKE DESCRIPTION: A short, steep climb to spectacular views from one of southern New Hampshire’s highest peaks (2,937′). We will hike the Winslow Trail to the summit which has excellent 360-degree with views of Mount Monadnock, the Boston skyline, the White Mountains, Lake Winnipesaukee and the mountains of Vermont and Maine. There is a fire tower at the top which is one of only sixteen active fire lookout towers in New Hampshire. We will then return to the parking lot via the Barlow Trail.
