Denali Challenge

08/07/20 11:30 to 08/09/20 12:30
Within the mountains that surround Waterville Valley exist a number of New England's highest peaks. The Denali Challenge is to hike five of these peaks in one weekend. The ultimate challenge is to hike the five peaks equaling 20,000 feet (Denali is at 20,328') claiming the title "Alive after five". This year, hikers will be able to choose from a number of different peaks for the five mountains they will climb. Participation in the weekend is free and everyone is welcome. Whether you're an experienced hiker looking to master all five peaks, or just looking to join the fun, there is something to fit all abilities and ages. Pre-registration is recommended but not required. Please e-mail to pre-register. Hike any five of the following peaks to achieve 20,000’ (or a sixth peak if elevation is needed). Peaks (Elevation) Tecumseh (4003) Welch (2605) Dickey (2734) Snow’s (2800) North Peak Tripyramid (4180) Middle Peak Tripyramid (4140) South Peak Tripyramid (4100) Mt. Osceola (4340) Mt. Osceola East (4156) The Scaur (2200) Goodrich Rock (2200) Noon Peak (2976) Jennings Peak (3460) WEEKEND SCHEDULE Friday Hikes can be done on Saturday and Sunday, but hikers can choose to get one of the mountains out of the way on Friday. We do encourage a warm up hike on Friday to one of the many scenic outlooks in Waterville Valley. Hiker cards will be e-mailed to you this year. The hashtags #denalichallenge and #aliveafter5 can be used on social media to confirm hikes are completed throughout the weekend. More Info
