This weekend I headed north to New Hampshire. For a day of hiking in the White Mountains, and camping at the Wilderness cabins just off the Kancamagus Highway.
I started the morning leaving my home in Massachusetts driving through Boston on my way to the Whites.
Arrived at the trail head of the Welch-Dickey mountain loop and met the rest of my hiking crew. The weather could not have been better. This was my first time on this trail, and I will definitely be back.
The loop trail was 4.4 miles long. Full of great cliffs, ledges, and great views of Waterville valley on the way up the mountain. Then even better views to the north once we reached the ridge line.
After the hike we set up camp at the Wilderness Cabins on Bear Notch Road, located just off the Kancamagus Highway. If you are looking for a small quiet cabin location right in the middle of the white mountains this place is perfect. The camp is very clean and taken care of. The cabins are rustic but very comfortable, and well maintained. (Even though I slept in my tent). It is only minutes from many hiking trails. The owners are very friendly and work hard to make your stay enjoyable.
I setup my tent right next to the camp fire. In less time it took to start the camp fire, I had opened and set up the roof top tent. With the thick built in foam mattress I slept great that night.
The next morning I packed up the roof top tent leaving all the bedding inside the tent, and headed back home.
It’s great having the tent on the roof of my truck. It gives me the freedom to camp whenever I want. On top of that it’s so easy to setup, and with tons of room. This time it was just me, so I only used the roof top tent. If my family came with me, I could have attached the annex and setup the air mattress in it, creating room for 4 of us.
I can’t wait to hit the road again.
