Our fourth day on the Appalachian Trail in New Hampshire, we continue to hike with my 71 year old Dad who is section hiking the entire Appalachian Trail. We hike up Zealand Trail, a side trail to the AT and then up a steep boulder scramble to the beautiful Zealand Falls Hut, where we got hot soup and baked goods! Then we continued north on the AT (also called Ethan Pond Trail) to Crawford Notch (US 302). We hike on an amazingly beautiful trail on an old railroad grade, which makes an unusually smoothly graded trail for the New Hampshire AT. This section was a nice break from all the mountain climbing previously. Subscribe for the next hiking adventure in New Hampshire!

We continue our hike with my Dad and Dale (Greybeard) who is currently hiking the Appalachian Trail in the hopes of becoming the oldest thru hiker at the age of 83! My Dad is also continuing his pursuit of hiking the whole AT in sections at the age of 72.

This section was amazing and also challenging with lots of rock scrambles and boulders to climb over. We hiked this section of the AT and then stealth camped just north of Galehead Hut on the AT. Then we hiked out on Gale River Trail to take a break and camp in a state park. Subscribe to see the continuation of this section hike!

This is the first day of our section hike of the New Hampshire Appalachian Trail, also called Liberty Springs Trail. My 71 year old Dad has been section hiking for a number of years and has completed from Georgia all the way to this point.

Also hiking with us this year is my Dad’s neighbor, Greybeard. He is thru hiking the AT this year and will be the oldest man at the age of 82 to thru hike once he completes it. He should actually be almost done now as he had already skipped ahead and done some of Maine.

The most up to date info is on Greybeard’s Facebook page: http://ift.tt/2akuzwD .
Also his youtube channel is displayed at the end of the video.
