We're looking for an overnight loop near the Boston area. I've checked out the Pemi Loop Hike in New Hampshire, but it's strenuous and we think it might be a little too much for the more novice members in my party. We have 3 days off in November. The Pemi Loop takes 3-4 days, so even if we chose it, it might be pushing it. Any other recommendations?
EDIT I meant that we are from Boston and are willing to drive up to 3 hours away to hike. We have done plenty of day hikes that distance away. I've hiked Mount Monadnock with this same group and we thought it was good terrain for our skill level. So something like that for a few days would be ideal.
We all have a 3 day weekend in November off, so we thought it would be fun to try an overnight.
None of us have hiked overnight before, so I'm not too familiar with how campsites work. I'm guessing it varies a lot depending on the trail. But if I can get any and all suggestions for 2-3 day loops in New England, that would help greatly. Then I can start looking into details and finding the right hike for us.
Also, it doesn't have to be a loop. As long as I can get back to my car to drive us home that works.
