Hi @Jefferson53 - Thanks for reaching out!

It's great to hear you're getting into hiking. There are so many amazing trails around New Hampshire.

While we are hopeful some of the folks tagged in your introduction will weigh in or want to join you out on the trails, we also wanted to suggest some additional opportunities. In October, REI is hosting an evening group hike event based in Conway. If interested, this may be a great chance to meet others and learn more about hiking in the process!

There is also a group on Meetup called The White Mountains and Great North Woods Outdoors Group that might have some hikes that interest you.

Hopefully this helps!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
