Mt Teapot

Climbed Teapot on 11/10/2017 with Bill Schor. We got a late start as I had a doctor’s appointment so we didn’t hit the trail until about 12:30. It was cold, 15F, and snowing lightly. By the time we got to the summit it was only 9F. We had to keep moving to stay warm. The route starts on a gated logging road off Meriden Hill Road in North Stratford just south of Colebrook. We ate our PBJs in the warm car before we started up.

Start of the hike up Teapot

We followed the logging road for about .4 miles and then turned onto an older logging road that we followed for about .5 miles. We then just headed into the woods and went uphill until we got to the summit. The route was through mostly open woods and not very steep.

We took a different route down that was through more open woods and made for quick trip down. The temperature was still dropping.

We got back to the car and then headed north to Pittsburg to spend the night and get ready for the next days adventure. Only 7 peaks left to finish the New Hampshire 200 Highest list.
