Liberty Springs Backpacking Trip 8/6-9/11

On Saturday, August 6, we drove up to Sugarloaf campground to begin our high adventure trip. We set up camp and hiked up one of the Sugarloaf mountains. After that, we were invited to play a game of ultimate Frisbee. We played for awhile against another group, and decided to go have dinner. After we cleaned up, we played some games in the dark with the same group. The next day, we packed up camp and drove to the trail head we would be hiking from. We hiked 3.8 miles up to the campsite, made our shelter, and hike up Mt. Liberty and Mt. Flume, two 4,000 Ft peaks, adding on another 3.6 miles for a total of 7.4 miles on Sunday. On Monday, we went the opposite way on the ridgeline to Little Haystack, Lincoln, and Lafayette. All were above 4,000 ft high, but Little Haystack is not considered one of the 48 4,000 footers in New Hampshire. Monday Grand total: 7.6 miles. Finally, on Tuesday, we hiked the 3.8 miles down from the campsite, and drove home. Along the way we stopped at Subway for lunch, and the longest candy counter in the world- Chutters. Overall, it was a great trip and everybody had fun. I would do it again if it was offered.
