Alumni Hike
North Kinsman
9 a.m. start at the the Lafayette Place Campground Parking area in Franconia Notch
Duration: approx. 6 hours round trip

Academic Vice President and Dean of Faculty Laura Alexander '98 once again leads our annual hike in the White Mountains. She writes "In our continuing quest to hike New Hampshire's 4,000 footers, we will climb North Kinsman, with an option to hike over to South Kinsman, too. We will hike the Lonesome Lake Trail to the Fishin’ Jimmy Trail to the Kinsman Ridge Trail. 3.9 miles one way, with 2,700 of elevation gain."

This is a moderate trail in terms of intensity, with a lovely view of the Franconia Range and Kinsman Pond from the summit. Participants should wear comfortable sneakers or hiking boots, and bring clothing layers, food and water. Children who are used to hiking, and well-behaved dogs (with good trail manners) are welcome.

Please respond by Sept. 8 to the Alumni Office at or (603) 526-3886.
