The Pemi Loop
The Pemigewasset Loop (AKA the Pemi Loop) is recognized as one of the greatest ways to experience the White Mountain National Forest.
Here are the stats:
In 4 days we will cover 32 miles of terrain. We will summit 8 of New Hampshire’s 48, 4,000-foot peaks. We will spend 3 nights under the stars, trekking over at least 7 different trails. Above all, we will leave with 1 hell of a story to tell our coworkers on Monday.
This trek is not for the faint hearted. We will be challenged with a rock-strewn trails, steep climbs, unforgiving descents, and uneven terrain. That being said, we are rewarded with sweeping 360-degree vistas, rare alpine vegetation, wildlife sightings, sunsets, and complete immersion into the wild backcountry.
Imagine interrupting your monotonous weekend routine. Instead of wasting the first few hours of your coveted weekend sleeping in yet again, you’re already on the road. Coffee in hand, you round a bend and the mountains break through the distant horizon. Your heart beats with the anticipation of adventure. Instead of walking up and down the aisles of the grocery store, you’re up and down mountain summits. Instead of doing wash, you throw that same old t-shirt on, and tackle another peak. Instead of staring at an LED screen under fluorescent light, you spend every evening trading stories as the sun dips low and the stars bid you good night.
