Details: Want to hike the mountains of New Hampshire, but don't know how to start. Wish you had a group of trained, experienced, hike Leaders to teach you everything you should know to hike safely? Here you go.. The SEM Chapter is offering a 'Summer Hiking Series', during which we will take you from 'What you need to know' to the summit of a NH 4800 foot peak. The series starts June 2nd, with a training hike at the Blue Hills where, in addition to hiking, you will learn about clothing, food, equipment, conditioning. It will be followed by several New Hampshire hikes, ranging from 'Piece of cake,' to 'Boy, that was a real challenge!' On this first hike we will do a combination of hiking and learning. There will be a lot of 'up and down' hiking, to start getting in shape, while testing out our clothing and gear, and getting used to the 'flow' of a hike. Interested? Then sign up for this hike! Summer Hiking Series dates; July 7 - Mount Hedgehog 2,532', August 4 - Jennings Peak 3,460', September 8 - Mt. Moosilauke 4,802' Successful completion of each hike qualifies you for the next hike.)
