Mt. Kancamagus

Hiked Mt. Kancamagus on 9/22/2016 with Bill Schor. The weather was perfect, cool in the morning with bright blue skies. We hiked 2 miles up the Livermore trail across from Lily Pond on the Kanc.

We hiked up to Livermore Pass to start the bushwack.

It was 1.3 miles to the summit of Kancamagus through mostly open woods. There weren’t any really thick or steep parts. About a quarter mile from the summit we were able to follow an old path that went right to the summit.

The last visitor to the summit was on 8/22 and then all the way back to March. Not a lot of visitors here even though it’s a pretty easy bushwhack. We ate our PBJs on the summit and made our way back to the trail on a slightly different route that was easier than the way up. We came out on the trail about 500 feet from where we started.

Only 21 peaks left to finish the New Hampshire 100 highest.
