Tours with Lisa, Part 1

We had Redline Guide Ken Hodges out there again, this time with a guest from Ohio named Lisa. The objective — the first of two over three days (the second hike will happen tomorrow) — was a New Hampshire classic: the Franconia Ridge Loop hike. How much of a classic is this one? Well, if you Google “Most Beautiful Hike in NH” (which we don’t necessarily […]

Guided Mt Carrigain Hike

One of the most popular 4000-footers in New Hampshire is the 4700-foot Mt Carrigain. The reason for its popularity is two-fold: first of all the summit features a raised steel and wood observation deck; and second, from that lofty perch hikers can enjoy simply stunning 360-degree views. Moreover, according to Redline Guide Howard Aronson — today’s hike leader — 44 of the 48 4000-footers are visible […]

Slide Above The Nubble

Two of the team, Redline guide Bill Robichaud and guide and owner Mike Cherim, completed the New Hampshire peaks on the New England Hundred Highest list with the ascent of the 3813-foot Peak Above The Nubble. Not only did they manage to find the top of this “trailless” mountain, they did it in a fun and interesting way. The duo went at it from the northwest […]

Finishing the NEHH

Remember Bob? The fellow from Maine? The one with the concerned wife? The one who hired us at the insistence of said wife, to help her 77-year-old husband complete the trailless New Hampshire and Maine peaks that make up the New England Hundred Highest (NEHH)? For those who don’t know, let’s bring you up to speed first… before we dive headling into the finish. (That’s right, […]

Guided Hike to Owl’s Head

Having guided this hike in the past, we weren’t surprised to see this destination come up again. It’s not that it’s too long or too difficult. But it is a long hike and there are notable challenges… or there can be. Namely, assuming one isn’t taking one of the three common “bushwhacks” — Black Pond, Fishermen’s, or Brutus — then there are three river crossings to […]

Climbing the NE111

We had a returning guest, Monica, book a trip with us for yesterday (9/10). Her goal was to hike Mt Jefferson (5712′) in the Northern Presidentials. You see, during a prior trip to the area, she was able to bag Madison and Adams, but Jefferson had alluded her at the time. We would see to it that this time would be different. Monica’s a capable and […]

Six Mountains in Maine

If you’ve been paying attention to what we’ve been up to since spring you may remember Bob. He’s the fellow in Maine whose wife cares enough about him that she insisted he hire a guide while he completes the trailless peaks on the New England Hundred Highest list. Caring woman, smart man. We paired him with Redline Guide Ken Hodges figuring it might be a good […]

Redlining the White Mountains

“Redlining” in this context means to hike all of the trails described in the AMC’s White Mountain Guidebook. That’s 1440.4 miles based on the book’s 29th Edition, but since the most basic out-and-back trail requires two trips — out and back — it adds up to a whole lot of hiking and exploring when it’s all said and done. Redlining is a novel, rewarding pursuit that […]

Exploring NH Mountains, Day 3

Remember the family from North Carolina we told you about? The family with the dog? There’s Brad and Paige, daughter Chelsea, and her dog, Lilly. They’ve been on two adventures with us so far. First there was Mt Kearsarge North, then there was Hedgehog Mountain. Today they were with us again, but differently. First of all they were present as two groups today instead of one, […]

Exploring NH Mountains, Day 2

Returning to our trilogy, the family visiting from North Carolina — remember them, Brad, Paige, daughter Chelsea, and Lily — is at it again. This time Redline Guide Ken Hodges takes them to see not one, but two mountains from the aforementioned 52 With-A-View list. Two mountains… is that correct? They requested a later start so Ken choosing two mountains might seem questionable at first, but […]

Exploring NH Mountains, Day 1

A few months ago we were contacted by a North Carolina family who planned to be visiting the Northeast. (Not to be confused with the North Carolina woman who we brought up Mt Washington, though. They just like us down there, ya’ll.) This family hoped we would introduce them to a few of our mountains by way of our notoriously rugged trails — though they didn’t […]

Washington on a Whim

Seems like just the day before yesterday when we announced the addition of our newest Redline Guide, Jeffrey Shutak. Next thing you know he is answering the call of duty when a sudden and spontaneous request to be guided to the summit of New England’s tallest peak comes in late yesterday. We pride ourselves in being there and we were there for this request as well. […]
