Mt. Cardigan -- 10 May 08

| Return to Outings | Return to T45 Home | Return to Calendar |

1.0 Overview

Troop 45's first spring hike will be up Mt. Cardigan. This is a good opportunity to do some hiking and be out on top of an exposed peak.

2.0 Concept

2.1 Description

Mount Cardigan, located about 4 miles east of Canaan, NH, rises to an elevation of 3155 feet. Although it is not too tall in comparison with other peaks in the White Mountains to the north, Mt. Cardigan is situated in such a way that it frequently experiences extremely high winds on its exposed, bare rock summit. We are still in spring and can expect cool conditions and maybe even snow patches on the way up. Weather is a factor we will need to be ready for.
