Wild Exploration Adventures

We are creating a series of hiking adventures that will take participants off the beaten track to explore areas of the White Mountain National Forest that few ever visit. We will be bushwhacking, using old trails, following terrain features like slides, navigating by map and compass, and more. If you’ve ever taken one of our Wilderness Navigation courses this may be a perfect opportunity to put […]

Guiding in the Wilds

Yet another guest working on the AMC’s New England Hundred Highest list came to us looking for knowledgeable companionship and guidance. We happily obliged. On the job was Redline Guide Ken Hodges. Shadowing Ken was the newest member of our team, Ryan Mcguire. On the agenda for the day was the 3862-foot Vose Spur — one we’ve guided before. And like the last trip, it sounded […]

Successful Trails Day

We cleared seventy waterbars! We recently announced our First Annual Volunteer Trails Day. Our thinking was, as a company, to organize a way for folks to give back to the White Mountain National Forest. For hikers, a great way to do this is to maintain the hiking trails. Doing so preserves and protects them. And it’s sorely needed. Hikers may not realize how much impact they […]

Overnight Alpine Tour

A returning guest and amateur photographer, Linda, made a request to basically be in the alpine zone from sun-up to sundown, to make use of those golden hours shutterbugs love so much, summit Mt Monroe, and summit Mt Washington. And, during it all be informed about the alpine flora she wanted to photograph. Not just a hike, but a nature tour as well. It was suggested […]

They Meant Every Word

Teaching someone the art of navigation or some other backcountry craft is immensely satisfying. So is introducing someone to our incredible mountains for their very first time. But both of these pale in comparison to the incredible feeling of satisfaction we derive from performing weddings, uniting two souls for a future of togetherness that continues on ’til death do you part. It’s special. And special describes […]

Anatomy of a Rescue

If you’re injured in the backcountry there are possible many scenarios with many outcomes, but most have one thing in common: Rescue will take longer than one may expect. To give a clearer understanding of why, this fictional tale describes a typical rescue from start to finish. Chapter 1: The Situation To begin our story, let’s consider this: It is early June and you’re hiking a […]

Montanha do Pico

Redline Guides Álvaro Marques and Ken Hodges haven’t been around all week. They’ve been hiking in Portugal — the country Álvaro hails from. Not just any old hiking, either. On this trip they had their sights set on the 7713-foot (2351m) Montanha do Pico (Mt Pico) the country’s tallest mountain. Specifically Mt Pico is a stratovolcano located on Pico Island in the mid-Atlantic archipelago of the […]

Four Days of NH Hiking

To those in the know, four days of back-to-back hiking here in our rugged New Hampshire mountains is not something to be overlooked. When it’s done by a guest from Florida who despite having the best in mountainesque gadgetry is unable to actually get out there to hike mountains, it’s even more impressive. And that’s exactly what our Floridian visitor did over the long weekend. And […]

Ryan Mcguire Joins the Team

Relocation of the body so as to move the heart closer to its one true love. Anyone who has moved to a place they love, a place they visit often — a place at least hours away from where they live — might be able to relate to this statement (see inset). Right now Redline Guide Ryan Mcguire is trying to make this a reality in […]

Baldface Circle Loop

Scrambles and views were requested by our returning guest, Oleg, and his friend, Yuliya, so we thought the Baldface Circle Loop might deliver (it’s not our first time to this rodeo). And it did. Leading this campaign was Redline Guide Ken Hodges. The experience for Oleg and his friend actually began the night before. They rolled into North Conway late and met owner Mike Cherim at […]
