Taking on the Great Gulf

One of six wilderness areas, the Great Gulf, is stunning. This 5,552 acre tract of land was designated by Congress as public land that should be protected by way of the 1964 Wilderness Act. It stands to reason, the area feels wild, dark, deep, rich, and even a bit mysterious or foreboding — and all while being beautiful at the same time. The Jefferson Brook feeds […]

Battling the Winds

Some adventures are more of an epic than others. Often times this is directly related to the weather. It stands to reason that the more dangerous and off-the-hook an activity is, the more it is seared into our brains. Not only is the event never forgotten, it often gets better with age. This, of course, might have to do with your definition of fun. This adventure, […]

There’s no place like it and that is one of its charms. On a recent backpacking trip, Redline Guide Nico Dubois took a couple out of the way for three days and immersed them in the wilderness passing through Zealand Notch. Unfortunately there are only a few photos, but we were able to put together this little keepsake video with images provided by Nico. But first, […]

Fraternal Twins

It was twin days of hiking, but one day looked nothing like the other. On day one Redline Guide Howard Aronson brought our father-son guests on the Moats as fas as Middle Moat. They turned there to avoid longer traverse. The next day, with less time to spare, and feeling it from the prior day’s efforts, they toned things down a bit exploring Pinkham Notch a […]

Handling Huntington

The Huntington Ravine Trail’s reputation coupled with Mt Washington’s reputation as having the world’s worst weather will at times conspire to, at the very least, command respect if not actual fear. That trail is, after all, on the Terrifying 25 list. And for those in the know, it has its puckering moments. But, with some drive and push to overcome fears, it may be handled, as […]

North Kinsman was Next

On lead with another oft-returning guest was Redline Guide Pat Ferland on the 4293′ North Kinsman — one of the New Hampshire 4000-footers. This mountain was number 19 out of 48 for our guest. Time constraints dictated this mountain over their original objective for the day, Mt Cabot. So slim were the constraints that South Kinsman was taken off the table, unfortunately. Next time! Good lead, […]

Carrigain for Number 37

One of our longtime returning guests, another peakbagger working on her New Hampshire 4000-footers, hiked up and back and got the 4700′ Mt Carrigain crossed off the list for number 37/48. On lead for the trip was new Redline Guide Michael Scire (yep, another Mike). This was Mike’s second trip with us having led an Owl’s Head hike just this past weekend. We didn’t write a […]

Alpine Garden Nature Tour

A vacationing family looking for something interesting to do decided upon one of our Guided Nature Tours. Specifically it was decided the Alpine Garden tour on Mt Washington would be a fun option, but the chosen day, Monday, was so rainy thanks to the storm named Henri, the tour would have been un-fun and even dangerous. Sure, we could have changed the objective to Lonesome Lake […]

Yoga in the Rain

This is not one of our official Adventure or Other Services offerings, but it may be in the very near future as Redline Guiding teams up with a dedicated Mt Washington Valley Yogi, Christie Ann Rochette. In the meantime, enjoy this video about this latest hike yoga/meditation event. The group was led and videographed by Redline Guide Mike Cherim. Great job, Christie and crew… Thanks for […]

Two Classic NH Hikes

Our guest was fit, able, and ready for it. And his guide, Redline Guide Jeffrey Shutak was likewise up for it. By “it” we mean two days of hiking, and by “hiking” we mean slaying four of our “4000-footers” while taking on two classic New Hampshire alpine loops, namely Mts Monroe and Washington on day one followed by the northern end of the Franconia Ridge grabbing […]

Why “Private” Rules the Day

When we opened our doors here at Redline Guiding we honestly figured we’d be like everyone else in this industry in that we’d try to pack as many people into our groups as humanly possible so as to maximize profits. But that, as it turns out, really isn’t who we are, nor is it how we operate on the day-to-day. We lead private tours, like 99% […]

A Grandfather’s Dream

There were concerns. Redline Guide Mike Maciel would be leading four people, two of them underage — and that can prove challenging on its own — and the forecast was calling for Hades-like temps with the heat and humidity pushing the feel to over 100°F. The concerns started to literally melt away a bit, however, as the morning continued. The team was well prepared, Mike had […]
