Glen Boulder hike ~New Hampshire

Howdee all,

Jeff and I cut our Maine trip short so that he could go to Hiking Camp with his brother in New Hampshire…

I joined in on a few hikes myself.

Hiking camp teens form a like to unload and stack wood.

Glen Boulder, visible to travelers on Route 16, is a glacial erratic curiously perched on the mountainside in Pinkham Notch. This steep climb leaves Route 16 from the Glen Ellis Falls Parking area. The trail rises above treeline at a relatively low elevation, passing two trail junctions, crossing brooks, and traversing open rocks on it's way to Glen Boulder. The views along the way are tremendous.

I would have liked to have been with you guys on that hike. Great view! We did just the beginning of the hike to the falls.

I was there two years ago and i was impressed. Unfortunately i had no time to visit around it very well because i was there for only two days, but i hope to visit it again very soon. I recommend this place, it is very nice.
