Join us for a hike Saturday following scenic Kinsman Pond Trail up to North and South Kinsman, two 4000-footers, with superb views of the entire Franconia Range! Along the way, we’ll encounter a natural rock and water formation called the Basin, fine waterfalls along Cascade Brook, and shoreline views of high-elevation Kinsman Pond.

Hike: 11.4 miles, 3450 ft. elevation gain. See https://caltopo.com/m/0EJK1

Our required pre-trip meeting will be Thursday at 6pm.

We’ll leave Cambridge at 5am and stop for a quick breakfast near the trailhead.
