Mahoosuc II

Trip Description

This trip is crammed full of interesting highlights moving quickly from one to another including Old Speck Mountain, the precipitous descent of Mahoosuc Arm, Mahoosuc Notch, South Peak vista, and most of the Mahoosuc Range. After conquering one of the most difficult sections of the Appalachian Trail on the second day, known as Mahoosuc Notch, where you will scale a glacier-carved gash, you will feel accomplished for sure! Crossing paths with other Batesies, you will have the opportunity to meet more determined hikers like yourselves and get to know your new classmates. The Mahoosuc Range provides a challenge to experienced hikers who are willing to push themselves and enjoy Maine and New Hampshire’s beautiful peaks.
Mileage: 23 miles

*Mahoosuc I & II share the same itinerary, but are run in opposite directions.

Anne Carroll

I’m Anne a senior from the exotic land of Massachusetts. I am a psychology major and a philosophy minor but don’t fear I won’t try to psychoanalyze you or pull you into a debate about the existence of free will (unless you want that…). My passions also include climbing mountains, wilderness cooking and lady-tanks (whatever that entails) as well as skiing and running. I am currently living it up in Dunedin, New Zealand where I hope to return with tons of wool, maybe a pet sheep and some sweet as kiwi phrases.

Alex Hamilton

I’m Alex a senior, a Nordic Skier and an ES major from an itty-bitty town high in the mountains of California, where there is one bear for every person (that’s a lie) and it snows 30 feet every winter (that’s not a lie). My passions include climbing mountains, wilderness gourmet cooking, and bro-tanks. This fall i’ll be returning from studying abroad in Montevideo, Uruguay, where I hopes to perfect my Spanish and my laid-back South America lifestyle.
