W1/MV-001 Bean Hill

Every now and then I find an interesting summit that I can’t seem to get out of my head. This happened today while hiking Bean Hill.

Bean hill is a seldom activated summit in the town of Northfield NH. At one time it was a ski area but the ski area closed in the mid 90’s and has now been converted to a Mountain Bike Park.

At the base of the hill you’ll find a Lodge with an exceptional staff. There’s a bar and a kitchen and on a cold day you can warm up by the wood stove. If you stop in during the off season, stop at the lodge and ask permission. In the summertime when the lift is running you can ride up and down the hill for free. If you plan to ride down on your bike, they do charge a fee.

I want to thank all the chasers that made this a successful activation. It wouldn’t be any fun without you guys being there.

Conditions were pretty decent. I was running 5W into a Trail Friendly EFHW.
