 Hikers on the trail, going around obstacles and climbing and descending, cover 281 statute miles in Maine, and 161 miles in New Hampshire, but the flight is only 268nm. Sights include Sugarloaf Mountain and Mount Washington, with its iconic hotel. We'll end this first leg at KLEB (Lebanon Municipal, elev 603 ft), just shy of the border between New Hampshire and Vermont.
