Guides in Overdrive

We really like to share the cool things our guides do when they’re not out there guiding. And they do a lot. So much, in fact, it’s hard to keep up. We recently mentioned that Redline Guide Bill Robichaud just finished his Appalachian Trail thru-hike. And while our focus was on that piece, Arlette Laan finished hiking the New England Trail with her husband, Rich. Jeffrey […]

Close and Remote

The 2726′ Iron Mountain in Jackson, NH, is unlike many of the other “smaller” mountains so close to the floor of the Mt Washington Valley. It’s rugged, severely eroded in places exposing many rocks and roots, it has some steep bits, and it’s seemingly wild; it feels very remote. It’s a rustic, quiet mountain, and that quiet heightens the experience. It’s a great mountain — one […]

Fourteen States

Redline Guide Bill Robichaud went on a long walk. He began by hiking up a little mountain in Georgia on a hot April morning, then ending some four-and-a-half months later on Baxter Peak of Mt Katahdin in Maine. The trail? Why, it was the 2190-mile Appalachian National Scenic Trail (better known as the AT), of course. And Bill took it on — as “Science Guy” (a […]

Triple Trek Tuesday

It’s that time of year when hikers swell in numbers up here in the White Mountain National Forest resulting in us having three trips in the same weekday! Two were private tours: one, a trip to Iron Mountain (elv. 2726′) in Jackson for a regularly returning pair of local hikers getting back into it led by Redline Guide and owner Mike Cherim; and the second a […]

Best Part of Our Vacation!

The testimony is the title; and the title, the testimony. That says a lot. What also says a lot is that these words are from returning guests and that, perhaps, is the greatest testimony of all. And by “returning guests,” we’re not talking about folks returning to us from last year. Not last season. Not even last month. This trio of now-addicted hikers first came to […]

Wedding by the Eagle

It was a warm, summery evening at the lovely ceremony grounds located on the Eagle Mountain House property in Jackson, NH. It was there that our Justice of the Peace and Redline Guiding owner Mike Cherim would officiate the marriage of Dan and Beth. While it was a formally attired affair, it was also laid back just like the bride and groom themselves. At their request […]

Huntington Ravine, Today?

That’s what we were asked first thing in the morning: “Can you supply a guide for me today? I would like to ascend Huntington Ravine.” Quite the question to wake up to but Redline Guide and owner Mike Cherim responded by saying “okay” — despite having gone to bed at 2:00am and needing to make a must-do phone call at around ten. Fortunately his wonderful wife, […]

Guiding Kids in Nature

Ken pointed out some delicious wild blackberries for all to enjoy. We spent nearly as much time discussing and planning this custom half-day nature tour as our guests from Connecticut did actually enjoying it, but it was really worth it because enjoy it they did. A lot, in fact. The main focus of the tour, as requested, was wildlife. Beavers specifically, if at all possible. With […]

Best Hike in NH

It’s been said by more than one person that the Classic Franconia Ridge Loop — to hike up Falling Waters Trail to Haystack Mountain (4760′), traverse the ridge summiting Mts. Lincoln* (5089′), Truman (5020′), and Lafayette* (5260′), then descend via Old Bridle Path — is arguably the finest hike in New Hampshire. We won’t weigh in on that opinion other than to say that it is […]

Hikers Marrying Hikers

The Amazing Mt Washington Wedding of John and Jen — 8/18/18 Connecting hikers in a forever bond on some mountain top or in some wilderness area is one of the things we do. And we love doing it. And it’s exactly what we did on August 18th, 2018. On that special day our New Hampshire Justice of the Peace and Redline Guiding owner, Mike Cherim, united […]

A Mt Chocorua Wedding

If ever there was an iconic New Hampshire mountain — besides Mt Washington, Mt Lafayette, or Cannon Mtn (Profile) — the 3500-foot Mt Chocorua would fit the bill. After all, anyone and everyone coming up to the mountains on the east side of the state (via NH Route 16) sees this beautiful, rocky-topped mountain before all others usually. Many people see it, know it’s shorter than […]

Cindy Zhou Joins the Team

New to our team of guides here at Redline Guiding is Cindy Zhou (pronounced schōh). Cindy comes to us from the city of Shenzhen in the southeastern part of China (see images below). It’s a busy, modern metropolis that links Hong Kong to China’s mainland. Similar to North Conway, it is known for its shopping destinations, but of course lacks our great mountains. If you’re thinking […]
