Upon reviewing my past blog postings, it was very surprising to find that I had never included a bushwhack adventure from a few years ago when I visited a huge cliff NE of Lancaster, NH. The cliff is located in the Pilot Mountain Range on the NW side of Hutchins Mountain.
As far as I can determine, this cliff lacks an officially-assigned name. It seems a bit odd that it would be unnamed since it is such a dominant feature on the landscape. If perchance any reader of this blog knows of a name for this cliff, please let me know, even if it’s only an unofficial name used by the locals.
This cliff resides within the White Mountain National Forest (WMNF). However, there are no official trails leading to it, nor did I come across any bootleg trails during my trek. Although it would be a very long approach route, you could bushwhack to this place completely on WMNF public land. Thankfully, my trek was shortened by having the good fortune of being granted permission by a local landowner to begin my trek on a parcel of private land along Lost Nation Road.
The location of the cliff is labeled near the center of the map shown below. Its GPS coordinates are: 44.5545, -71.4735.
