Mt. Pemigewasset - Hiking

Mt. Pemigewasset (2,557ft)
Elevation Gain: 1,557ft
Trail: Mt. Pemigewasset
Distance: 3.6 miles roundtrip
Duration: 2.5 hrs
Difficulty: Easy/Moderate

Another NH 52 with a view mountain! Met up with the New England Over 50 Hiking group in the north parking lot of the Flume Gorge visitor center. I was so happy and excited about being on this hike, there had to be about 3-4 inches of snow in the parking lot alone!

The trailhead is about 150 yards beyond the parking lot. We made our way up a wide bike path before turning onto the Mt. Pemigewasset trail. This took us through 3 small tunnels, the first under Route 3 and the other two under the south and northbounds lanes of I-93.

The trail is relatively easy with a moderate ascent. Mt. Pemigewasset, also known as Indian Head, is a small peak, but its ledged summit provides excellent views of the Franconia Notch area. There was a light snowfall when our group got to the top.

At the summit I tried out the "Peaks" app (Augmented Outdoors) on my iPhone and even got  Mt. Jay 70 miles away in Vermont! I was so excited to get it working and showing the others in the group, I completed forgot to photograph the views! LOL! Sorry, next hike I promise to use the app and get photos of the surrounding peaks! But here's a short vid to give you an idea just how fun this app can be!

 We didn't spend a whole lot of time at the summit. We hiked back down about 20 feet to get under the trees so we could lunch. Even after putting on another layer, I still got cold. And on the way back down to the trailhead I had to to run to warm up. Mt. Pemigewasset is part of the "New Hampshire 52 with a view" list.
