Hiked Little Wildcat on 1/22/2017 with Bill and Diane Schor. It was a cloudy day and quite warm. It was 36 degrees when we started which made for heavy snow. Little Wildcat is located behind the Glen House on Rt 16 in Pinkham Notch. It’s only a mile bushwhack but it took us 2.5 hours with the deep heavy snow and pretty steep route once we got near the summit. We started up one of the XC ski trails but that only lasted about 100 yards before we went off into the woods. It was pretty open woods for most of the route which was nice not having any thick spruce to deal with.
There wasn’t much to take pictures of on the way up to the summit and we were also in the fog most of the time. Just before reaching the summit we saw some snowshoe tracks of someone who had come up from Nineteen Mile Brook trail. He and his dog were still at the summit when we got to the summit. We were not expecting to find anyone else out in the middle of nowhere. We ate our PBJs and chatted for a while.
We started down on the same route and went much faster and enjoyed the fog shrouded woods.
Only 60 peaks left to finish the New Hampshire 200 Highest list.
