Snow Mountain Winter Ramble
Saturday, January 17th, 9:30 a.m.
Join the Upper Valley Land Trust and the Green Mountain Club O-Section for a winter ramble around UVLT’s 400 acre Snow Mountain property in Enfield, NH. This property is one small part of a 20,000+ acre unfragmented forest area. We’ll explore frozen wetlands, rock outcroppings, and extensive wildlife habitat, and look for winter sign of moose, bear, and our other local wildlife. If you’re feeling adventurous you can bring a sled for a quick ride back down the access road! Hike will be 3-4 miles in length, over moderate terrain, and will involve some guided bushwacking. Contact Doug Brown with questions.
Directions to Snow Mountain: Take exit 14 off of I-89 in New Hampshire and turn left onto Old Route 10. Drive south on this road for approximately one mile. If you reach the Upper Valley Humane Society you’ve gone too far! Park along the road near the gate, please do no park at the Humane Society.
