A few weeks ago we traveled to Mt. Uncanoonuc, New Hampshire. We were looking for foliage, and found that the leaves had not yet turned in NH, but we hiked this “short” trail regardless. The kind strangers we met told us it was a 40 minute hike to the summit, and they waited for us at each turn and twist in the path, thank goodness. This was a short hike, but likely the most treacherous hike we’ve taken. Straight up, on very rocky paths! Probably no big deal for many experienced hikers, but since I’m out of shape these days, Lydia was nursing a running injury and Lieren was walking locked knees due to a gymnastics injury, we certainly struggled. But it was well worth it once we got to the top!!
