Hi, I'm an avid hiker in the New England mountains, hills and woods. I have completed the New Hampshire 4000 footers in all season and returned again to complete them in exclusively winter months. I have completed the New England 4000 footers and continued to finish the New England hundred highest peaks - All season. On July 12, 2018 I finished the New Hampshire 100 highest list containing all peaks above 3500 feet. I'm currently working on the Adirondack 46r's, New Hampshire 3000 foot peaks and expansion into other states and other lists shown in the tabs or columns on the home page. Many of the peaks on these lists are trail-less bushwhacks and should not be attempted by someone unskilled with a map and compass. At the time of blog creation I found very few lists containing the 100 highest mountains and even less information on routes and access. My goal with HockeyPucks Hiking is to provide some information on these peaks to make your research a bit easier. Keep in mind that the parking location and routes I've chosen to hike may not result in preferred conditions or an ideal avenue to approach many of these summits. Use the content of this blog at your discretion as part of your hiking research process and not as a personal recommendation.
With so many potential hiking lists to attempt, specific mountain ranges such as the Ossipee's or Belknap range and peak based lists such as NH Firetowers, 52 with a View, 100 most prominent peaks, New Hampshire town high points, and other interesting locations my trip reports are posted rather randomly however, each destination was chosen based on some aspect of adventure. To stay organized, I've attempted to sort each of these trip reports into specific lists shown in the tabs above the home page or smaller link lists are shown on the right hand side of the page. If one of the mountains or hills I visit doesn't fit into any of these categories they were placed in the "Random Hikes" list.
I created this blog to share my hiking stories, adventures and help future peakbaggers. It's accurate to the best of my ability however, if you find any errors, discrepancies, inaccuracies or have any other suggestions feel free to leave a comment or reach out via e-mail: HockeyPuck
Thanks for reading.
