Holt's Ledge Hike in Lyme, NH

Over a long weekend we decided to take on a bit of the Appalachian trail and hike up to Holt’s Ledge in Lyme, New Hampshire. It was a spur of the moment decision to hit the road so we needed to make a quick stop at Walmart to get an oil change in the car and pick up a few essentials, like water and snacks.

Day Trip – Hiking to Holt’s Ledge

On our way out of town, we stopped by Walmart to give the car an oil change with Conventional Pennzoil motor oil at their Automotive Care Center. Since our car is nearly brand new, we don’t need to use Synthetic oil or High Mileage motor oil yet, but we do like to keep things running smoothly by getting an oil change on a regular basis.

You know me, always looking to be savvy and get a deal. Walmart’s Automotive Centers are having a Rollback on Pennzoil Oil Changes. Check out the oil change deals outlined below!

After our quick stop at Walmart for a fresh oil change and quick shopping trip, we headed over to Lyme, NH where we were ready to take a hike, literally! We decided we would take the back roads to Lyme, which was about 10 miles of dirt road – rutty, muddy and bumpy – but fun! The dirt road wound through the mountains and valleys before spitting us out at the Holt’s Ledge trail head.

Lyme, NH is home to a portion of the Appalachian trail, Holt’s Ledge and Trapper John’s Shelter. The hike was a bit challenging as there were steep, sometimes muddy, inclines. It’s listed as an easy trail, but a warning to the novice – the inclines are long and sometimes steep! The views at the top were definitely worth it though!

While on the hike we also explored Trapper John’s Shelter, which was a quick .6 mile detour off from the main trail. The shelter area is a nice place to rest as there is a shelter where you can camp, light a fire or just relax and refuel. We hung out and relaxed for a bit, it was such a nice day and the weather was perfect for a hike. We definitely lucked out and were able to enjoy all that the area had to offer.

At Trapper John Shelter, there’s a fire pit area and and old chimney stack from where the original shelter was. There is also a privy available for those who dare…

Onward to Holt’s Ledge!

After a quick detour over to Trapper John’s (0.3 miles each way), we returned to the main trail and headed up to Holt’s Ledge. The ledge was amazing and the views were spectacular. You can see mountains and valleys for miles! It was a perfect day to hike, a cool and nearly cloudless day.

After relaxing and enjoying the views from Holt’s Ledge, we continued on to the Dartmouth Skiway trails which was a surprisingly short hike across the summit. We ended up returning to the bottom of the mountain by way of a ski slope. That was interesting, I’ve never walked down a ski slope before!
