Hello all Mt. Garfield team members!
We plan to take up the Mt Garfield trail off Route 3, just past the Cannon Ski area Rt 93 interchange going north.
There is no highway sign saying “Garfield” just “Trail head parking”, carefull you might miss it.
Our plan is to meet at 7:30 AM to load up and then depart by 8AM sharp. Trail is fairly easy with a 3 hour or so total hike. Gives us 45 min+ to set up the flag which must be flying by 12 noon sharp.
Our pole setup is really quite easy to rig, but we will be flying a HUGE 8×12 flag this year! I have several rigging options to explore depending on the wind strength.

Wear more than that Brian!
Don’t forget that the trailhead is actually down Gale River Road. Make sure you take the correct branch of the road (it’s a loop; you want the southern entrance) and I think you have to make a right turn, too.New HampshireAugust 30, 2006 at 10:21 pmPost count: 168
Nifty little brown hiker signs keep you pointed in the right direction. And its not reall a right “turn” per se……rather the road takes a bend (which I actually think is left, not right.) The trailhead is right after you cross a wooden bridge.
And Michael, I think the other would protest quite a bit if all I wore was a smile! 😆 😆

Gale River Road road it IS!
Anyway…I got the trail, time and hopefully the right mountain… :flag:MichaelJParticipantAugust 31, 2006 at 5:15 pmPost count: 839
It’s a great mountain for flying a flag. Be sure to check out the gallery, especially 2004, to see the odd setup with the walls from the old fire tower, if you haven’t been there before.BrownieSeptember 1, 2006 at 5:23 pmPost count: 34

YES, I saw your setup in detail just for that reason.
I have been to Garfield many times before, but forgot just how big the foundation was, so the previous photos were a great reference.
We got one HUGE flag to setup this year!

Brownie….the set-up, the flag, everything was simply AMAZING! Good job to you and my fellow team members.
Looking forward to next years event!
