Mt Kancamagus - 3763 Ft

STATE: NH
DESTINATION: Mt. Kancamagus
ELEVATION: 3763 Ft
TRAIL: Bushwhack
DISTANCE: ~0.80 Miles
ELEVATION GAIN: 1000 Ft
HIKING TIME: 2 Hours
SEASON: Spring / Winter
DATE: April 27, 2013
WEATHER: 65 Degrees - Sunny
MAP: (Kancamagus)


DESCRIPTION: Parked on the Northern side of Rt 112 about 200 Ft from the start of the bushwhack. Entered woods at a break in the guardrain near a marshy stream area. Bushwhacked almost due South. The lower elevations were thicker spruce as we increased elevation the woods became less dense with taller trees. Still anywhere from 1 to 4 Ft of snow on the ground and footing was insecure. I post holed every 5 to 10 steps.

HIKING TIMES: 1 Hr 15 Min Ascent / 45 min Descent

NOTES / COMMENTS: The hike is relatively straight forward and uneventful. Bushwhacked via the path of least resistance to the col between Kancamagus and it's NW Knob.  Then headed due East to the summit canister.
