Mt. Jeffers

Hiked Mt. Jeffers on 1/27/2017 with Bill and Diane Schor. Day was forecast to be cloudy with snow showers but we never saw any snow, views were very limited with the clouds. We parked at the trailhead for the Glencliff trail up Mt. Moosilaukee and walked down to the North – South road which was plowed for logging but the gate was closed.

It was nice having the road plowed as we had to walk about 2.5 miles on the road to get to where the bushwhack started. We got to the start of the bushwhack and then started the .5 mile hike up to the summit. It was really easy as the snow had a thick crust that we didn’t break through and the woods were open with no thick spruce and no really steep parts. Easiest bushwhack in a long time.

We signed into the log which took a little while as the canister was frozen shut. We finally got it open and then headed back down to the road. It was too early to eat our PBJs.

We ate our PBJs at the road and took off our snowshoes and then headed back to the car. Got home before dark which hasn’t happened in a while. Still have 60 peaks left to  finish the New Hampshire 200 Highest. I had marked one has completed that I hadn’t climbed yet.
