Wild River Wilderness & Androscoggin River
August 22-25, 2019
backpacking in New Hampshire and a day of paddling on the Androscoggin River in Maine
Three days of backpacking and camping in the Wild River Wilderness in New Hampshire. We will rendezvous on Thursday evening for our first night at Wild River Campground. On Friday-Saturday, we will hike a leisurely but rugged 3-4 miles each day with stops to splash in brooks, read some poems, and soak up vistas. On Sunday we'll hike back to Wild River Campground to be out before lunch. And if you have time Sunday then stick around for an afternoon paddling on the Androscoggin River! And we'll probably stop in at the pub before heading home.
Previous backpacking or paddling experience isn’t necessary, but it is important that participants be in good condition to navigate the terrain and elevation gains while carrying personal and group gear. Registration is required.
Cost: $700 per person
