Ascent Trip Report

I used the following address to get to the parking lot for the hike of Belknap:

33 Carriage Rd Gilford, NH 03249

We drove up the mountain road to the small parking lot and got ready for the hike. Evey, Wolfgang, Peishan, and I started up the mountain at 1:38pm. We took the Green trail up to the top of Belknap. This trail was very easy and the sign said it was .8 miles long. We arrived at the top at 2:14pm and found three BM’s (One from the state of NH and two US Government BM’s that had the name Gunstock on them). We took a number of pictures and climbed the fire tower. We had outstanding views as the skies were clear. We started back down around 2:35pm and arrived at the bottom at 2:56pm. This was a great hike for the kids and we really enjoyed it. A sign at the bottom said that there are 12 mountains in the Belknap range and if you complete them all you can get a nice patch from:
