Hibbard Mountain – Solo Easter Hike

Hibbard Mountain (2,940ft) Elevation Gain: 1,821 feet Trails: Wonalancet Range Trail, Short Cut Distance: 4.8 miles roundtrip Duration: 4.5 hours (includes stops along the trail, and at lookout and summit) NH 52 With A View Difficulty: Easy to Moderate Danger: Low to Medium (Ledge at lookout, ice) A good day for solo hike, and on Easter day no less. I had the trail as well as the summit to myself. The parking lot temps were warm and there was no sign of snow or ice. But there was still snow and ice along some parts of the trail. Since I only microspikes on, I had to carefully navigate those steep, icy parts of the trail. I sure wished I had my mountaineering crampons and an axe! Here are some of my photos of my solo hike.
