Hiked Stub and North Stub on 11/6/16 with Bill Schor and Bill Cronin. Weather was kind of iffy on the drive up with some rain and snow showers but by the time we got to the trailhead it was just cloudy and eventually cleared up. We drove quite a few miles on private gravel logging roads to get to the height of land between Stub and North Stub. Both hikes were pretty easy and took a little over an hour round trip.
We hiked Stub first and went up the herd path then to an old skidder path and eventually threw nice open woods to the summit. This was one of the easiest hikes to a trailess summit I’ve had.
On the way down we took a detour over to Stub Hill Pond. There was lots of evidence of moose but we didn’t see one.
When we got back to the car the view had cleared up.
We ate our PBJs in the car and then started the short hike up to North Stub. It was a little steeper and some thick stuff but we quickly made our way to the summit.
We made our way back to the car and headed out to spend the night in Colebrook. Only 11 peaks left to finish the New Hampshire 100 Highest. North Stub is on the New Hampshire 200 Highest list. Only 71 peaks left to finish that list.
