Staff at the Forest Society invited our partners at Concord Hospital - along with their families and friends - and those already registered thus far for the 5 Hikes Challenge (5HC) to join us from noon to 3 pm on September 17 for a naturalist-guided hike along the trails loop at the Forest Society Morse Preserve in Alton.

We enjoyed stunning views from the open summit overlooking Lake Winnipesaukee and the peaks of the Belknaps Range and the Ossipee Range across the lake and the more distant Sandwich Range of the White Mountain National Forest to the north.

Too bad about the weather, eh?

This group hike was a lot of fun.

Take a look and then get out there hiking with your friends or family this autumn.
