MammothMarch New Hampshire
We are excited to host our New Hampshire premiere at Bear Brook State Park!
The Granite State is beautiful in late September, and it's the perfect time of year for our 20-mile hiking adventure.
Our scenic route leads through the heavily forested park, which includes seldom visited marshes, bogs, summits and ponds – all ready for you to conquer on September 21, 2024.
Mastering our challenge, you will be exhausted, but proud and happy... as well as part of our amazing community of nature-lovers, hikers and MammothMarch addicts
