Mount Passaconaway - Fall Hiking

Mount Passaconaway (4,043 ft)
Elevation Gain: 2,950ft
Trails: Dicey’s Mill
Distance: 9.2 miles roundtrip
Duration: 7.5 hours (include stops along the trail for posing, and at lookout and summit)
My 4000+ Peaks #28
Listed 4000+: #4
Difficulty: Moderate to Strenuous
Danger: Medium (some steep sections)

Originally Sue (of Hen Hikes) and I set out to hike the loop to both Mounts Whiteface and Passaconway 5 weeks ago. But with time constraints we were only able to bag Mount Whiteface (4,020ft). Since Lisa (of Hiking Witches) hadn’t bagged Mt. Passaconway, this was an opportunity for the three of us to get together for another hike in the beautiful Whites! And to top, a fall hike in the beautiful Whites! 

Enjoy photos I took while on this hike.  .  . photos take with my iPhone!

The signs at the trailhead parking lot
We parked in the trailhead parking lot on Ferncroft Road and
followed the gravel road to a gate. I just love this sign!! :)

Well-maintained trail!

Bearing Trees are important for locating property corners and boundaries
 Gotta love this trail sign!
