Hedgehog Mountain (8/8/09)
View Mt. Hedgehog Hike in a larger map
Trip: Hiking the UNH Loop Trail
Distance: 5 miles
Sights: Eastern Ledges,
Upon return from the Balkans, I worried about slipping into the lethargic decadence that Edward Gibbon would have warned us off from.
So on Saturday, my mom and I headed out to the White Mountains. Over the Kancamagus Pass across from the Passaconaway Campground is the parking for the trail head.
In about one hour we had hiked up to the Eastern Ledges with fantastic views of the White Mountains. Another 45 minutes and you have summited Hedgehog Mountain. Then the loop continues down the mountain and back to the parking at the trailhead.
Nothing terribly exciting; but it’s a good hike.
