My friend April and I hiked our fourth 4000 footer in New Hampshire this past Saturday. The weather was incredible and we had some great friends and family join us on this adventure. We hiked the Mount Tecumseh Trail located at the Waterville Valley Resort to the summit of Mount Tecumseh. It was beautiful and for a short video of the view, click here. Mount Tecumseh is a 4,003 foot mountain located in the Sandwich Range in the White Mountain National Forest. The hike was 5 miles round trip and consisted of some beautifully maintained rock stairs along the way. Due to recent snowfall that had mostly melted, it made for slick conditions on the trail but nothing Microspikes couldn’t handle. We took our time on the way up observing the views and soaking up the beauty and tranquility of the forest. We finished the hike just as it turned dark but always bring our head lamps just in case that happens. We got to see some alpenglow on the mountain ranges on the way down which was interesting because I just recently learned about that at a ski trip to Bretton Woods Resort, also located in the White Mountain National Forest. It was a great hike and a great day to hike given the unusually warm temperatures in December in the mountains.
