Event Details

Women’s Veterans Hike with Azimuth Check Foundation

Date and Time: Friday Mar. 1 at 10am until Sun. Mar. 3 at 12pm

Event Type: Women Veterans Hike in NH in collaboration with Azimuth Check Foundation https://azimuthcheckfoundation.org/

Location: Arethusa Falls

Fee: VAST provides all equipment and instruction at no cost to Veterans.

Includes:  XC Ski Instruction, trail passes, rentals, overnight lodging and food, some flight costs may be covered for out of state veterans, funds limited.


Description: This is a women veterans hike and appropriate for those of medium fitness level. Current plans are to hike to Arethusa Falls on Friday Mar. 1, enjoy dinner together and stay overnight (exact lodging TBD) and depart after breakfast. Nestled into the southern end of Crawford Notch State Park off Route 302 in Harts Location, Arethusa Falls is regarded by many as the best scenic waterfall in New Hampshire. Once you’ve stood at the base of this massive cascade, it’s hard to argue the point.


Distance: 1.5 miles (one way)

Time: 1.5 – 3 hours (round trip)

DifficultyFamily Hike

Additionally, for those veterans that have hiked 4000’ peaks in the summer and are looking for more of a challenge, we will extend this event for one more night. After our other female friends depart, we have tentatively planned to hike North and South Kinsman on Saturday, and stay one more night and depart Sunday morning.  More details to come!
