Summer is upon us

The Cog has been coming to the Summit for the past couple of weekends and today was the first day the Auto Road was open to the public. Tomorrow will be the first day that the Stages will be bringing guests to the Summit.

For all of you hikers out there wanting to come to the Summit just remember that the Valley may be plenty warm however up here on the ‘rock’ pile it’s still in the 30’s and 40’s so bring plenty of extra layers. There’s also still some snow and plenty of runoff on the trails so you’ll need to plan accordingly. It’s always a good idea to stop by the AMC Pnkham Notch Visitor Center or check out the conditions on-line.

If you’re in the area this summer come on up to the highest peak north of the Carolinas and east of the Mississippi and if you’re an Observatory Member stop by for a free tour or check out this Observatory Tour Special being put on by the The Cog.
