Monday September 01, 2014 Galehead Hut - NH by Michael Chernick

A party of three hiked in ideal late summer weather to the Appalachian Mountain Club's Galehead Hut in the White Mountains along the Gale River (4.0 miles) and Garfield Ridge trails (0.6 miles) The opening three miles are relatively flat and feature several brook crossings. The final 1.6 miles (especially from miles 3.0 to 4.0 upbound are much steeper, compensating for the unusually lengthy flat segment of the hike. Views were excellent and the group spent an enjoyable lunch hour at the hut. Two of the party continued another 0.5 miles to the summit of Galehead Mountain.
