#68 Sandwich Dome via Drakes Brook Trail, June 2006

#68 Sandwich Mountain (3980') via Sandwich Mountain and Drakes Brook Trails, June 2006.

Mileage: 8.3 miles (lollipop loop)

Elevation Gain:  2,600'

Trailhead: Route 49 toward Waterville Valley. Take a right less than a mile before Tripoli Road. The parking lot is straight ahead. The Sandwich Mountain Trail trailhead is located just before the parking lot on the right.

Lesson learned:  Remember to document your hike.  I can't recall much about this one but wanted to include it in my blog as it was the first of my Hundred Highest 68-100.

Hiked with Dave, Marie, Art, Eileen and Bill. 



The group looking fresh before the hike.
Several months ago I decided to start on my New England Hundred Highest list with Sandwich Dome (also known as Sandwich Mountain). I saw that the trailhead was not too far away and it seemed like a nice late spring hike.  I sent a note around inviting my hiking buddies to join me only to have Eileen reply with this photo; we had already hiked it!

I don't remember much from this hike except that I lost my sunglasses halfway up the trail and with Bill's help was able to find them.  Pleasant day, pleasant hike and I think it is on my list for this winter. Rich and Sandy have not hiked this peak so it will be fun to revisit..
