Peaked-Middle, May 20, 2006Preview
Middle Mtn (1857') and Peaked Mtn (1739') are in the Green Hills just east of North Conway. The hike
offers several scenic vistas from ledgey outlooks. Both summits have grassy knolls where we can enjoy
snacks and lunch. The hike is about 5.4 miles and has taken me 4 1/2 hours to complete in the past.
Call that morning by 7:00 if any questions regarding hike cancellation due to inclement

Last Saturday Sue Murphy took us on a hike between rain storms, here is her report:
8 hikers suffering from a bad case of cabin fever were happy to be outdoors climbing 2 small mountains come rain, hail, snow or sleet...They did not care! Their determination conquered the elements as not one drop of water fell from the sky during the hike or the ice cream reward afterwards. The hike was a gentle climb the entire way. There were two totally uneventful brook crossings and a few muddy areas that had to be carefully side stepped. Both summits had wonderful views of the Conways and areas (?) east. We snacked at Middle Mtn and had our lunch on peaked Mtn sitting on a ledge out of the wind. All agreed that this was a hike well worth doing again. Not a long one as it took us about 3 1/2 hours with plenty of time to stop in North Conway for waffle cones and time to enjoy them sitting on the porch in the sunshine...YES! SUNSHINE! Those who didn't show up (fearing inclement weather was our guess) missed a wonderful day!
