Mt Roberts Hike

August 16

9 AM – 2:30 PM

 

 

Join us for our guided hike up Mt. Roberts in The Castle in the Clouds Conservation Area in Moultonborough on Friday, August 16th at 9 am! Guided Excursion Leader and AmeriCorps Member, Micaelie O’Hare will lead participants up this rewarding hike with multiple viewpoints that look out toward Squam Lake and Lake Winnipesaukee, while exploring the beautiful flora surrounding the trail. 

This is an out and back hike with a round-trip distance of approximately 5.2 miles. Participants will gain 1,362’ in elevation while hiking up to the peak, which stands at 2,570’. This is a strenuous hike and please keep in mind that weather conditions on that day may affect the difficulty. Along the way, participants will stop at the multiple viewpoints that has earned Mt. Roberts a spot on New Hampshire’s list of “52-With-A-View” and will take a lunch break toward the peak.
