#22 Mt. Passaconaway June 27, 2009

#22 Mt. Passaconaway via Dicey's Mill Trail June 27, 2009.  

Mileage:  9.2 miles RT

Elevation gain:  

Trailhead: The parking area is called Ferncroft,  down a short dirt road off of NH Rt 113A, where the main road takes a 90 degree turn by a white church. The parking area is .5 miles down the dirt road, on the right.

Hiked with Rich.  Forecast indicated showers but we had warm temps and blue skies with a few clouds.  It's a walk to the trailhead. Many butterflies and wildflowers.  Hike was an easy grade with a few steep sections. .  Trail was muddy and the brook crossing was challenging as the water was quite high. One overlook with beautiful views.  It took us 3 hours and 40 mins to summit.
