    I’m not the trip leader, but I have led owls head in 2012. I have a flag and poles. Last time I did owls head we left Lincoln woods parking lot at 6:30, this was a little late. I propose we meet at 6:00. If someone had a pole that could get above the trees, it would be a nice add.

    If I do not hear from the group leader this will be my plan and all are welcome.

    I’m also happy if the group leader has different plans. I’m happy to adjust.

    Here is the plan:

    6:00 am Lincoln woods parking lot

    Lincoln Woods Trail to Franconia Brook Trail to Lincoln Brook Trail to Owls Head Slide Path to Summit.

    Data (WMG): 9.0 miles, 2900′, 6 hours. (RT: 18.0 mi)

    Let me echo my thanks to SilentCal for the words of encouragement. I really appreciate that you and the others on flagsonthe48 for giving me a way to remember the people that lost their lives on 9/11. Raising a flag on a mountain may seem like a small action, but it shouts “We will never forget”.

    Honestly Owl’s Head is my favorite peak, but I have to admit I didn’t realize how high the trees were until I thought to get a flag above them. This is my second year trying to get a flag above the trees, next year I’m going to try signing up earlier, maybe even go for a view.

    Andy: This was Monty’s second time up Owl’s Head. He has tagged about 20 peaks so far. Now if he could keep track he could go for his 4000 ft patch.

    The more the merrier. I’ll be the one with a small light blue honda fit and a light brown dog.

    I will be there @ 6:30. I have a pole as well. It just had a tough time in the wind last year.

    My pole is aluminium sections each 2 1/2 ft long for a total of 12 1/2 ft. We were able to strap it to a tree and barely got it above the tree tops.

    I’ll bring both the pole and the flag.

    See you at 6am.

    6:30 – 7:00; I can do that. I was being a little too conservative on the hiking time.

    I have not seen anything from the trip leader. So, I’m planning on making sure there is a flag on the top. If you can bring a Pole we will have it covered.

    If we hear an alternate plan from the leader then great.

    I have a small light blue car and a small dog.

    I can see the pole is the key. We needed a better pole, but for the first try we got it above the trees. Next year it will be better.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Does anyone know how tall the flag pole needs to be to get over the trees on the top of zealand?
