Toughest Mile of the AT

A little more than a week ago a few of the guides were hiking in Mahoosuc Notch just east of the Maine-New Hampshire border. That one of us would be guiding this section of the Appalachian Trail soon was purely coincidental — the fellahs were simply helping owner Mike Cherim “work” on his personal “redlining” mission. Assigned to lead today’s for-hire companion hike was Redline Guide […]

Franconia Ridge Traverse

There’s a chance we’re doing something right since a number of our guests keep returning to us to do or learn more. It’s getting to be a thing. And because of this we’re ecstatic. Welcome back, we say. Let’s have some fun. That’s what happened August 2nd: a day of fun for a returning guest, Tom, who went out with Redline Guide Arlette Laan recently on […]

Orange Canister Hike

Or to more properly quote our returning guest and New England Hundred Highest pursuer, Bob, “Orange [F-expletive] Canister Hike.” We’ll credit Bob for coming up with an original name, but we know many have given this tight, gnarly bushwhack to New Hampshire’s infamous Scar Ridge very similar monikers. Of which at least half include the same sensored word to describe the ascent of this 3775-foot Mountain […]

Wilderness First Aid

Of all the skill sets hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts may possess, backcountry medical training is perhaps the epitome of value. If you hike and spend time in remote locations outside of the “golden hour” (meaning an hour or more from typical urban medical services), dealing with injury or illness at some point — even if it’s not your own — is likely. Getting the proper […]

Peak Above The Nubble

Also known as PATN, Peak Above The Nubble is another of the New Hampshire-based New England Hundred Highest peaks that lacks an official trail. At 3813-feet, it is the 88th tallest.

Hut-to-Hut “Presi”

Another one in the books, a custom hike our guest, Tom, will remember for years to come: an amazing, incredible-weather “classic” — meaning from Madison to Pierce — Presidential Range Traverse. This tour was led by Redline Guide Arlette Laan. To manage this feat, we opted to offer a “Hut-to-Hut” Traverse utilizing the AMC’s Madison Spring Hut for the first night, then the AMC’s Lakes of […]

NEHH Help: Vose Spur

Situated just a stone’s throw from the 4700′ Mt Carrigain — one of the New Hampshire 4000-footers — 3862′ Vose Spur is connected to the north and east is like a little sibling. It’s also one of the trailless New England Hundred Highest mountains requiring some bushwhacking to get there. Not everyone is okay with doing this solo (like Mainer Bob), especially with a loved one […]

Mt Washington Ascended

Seems like it was just yesterday (it was) when Redline Guide Ken Hodges brought a returning couple on a guided hike of Mt Washington. To maximize the hike by decreasing crowds and getting them above treeline more quickly — giving them a fuller, richer experience — Ken chose the Boott Spur Trail with the descent being via the Lion Head Trail later. It was warm and […]
