Flags on the 48 2012 will be held on Saturday, September 8th 2012. On the closest Saturday to September 11th, hundreds of hikers converge on New Hampshire's 4000 foot peaks and raise flags as part of a memorial to those lost on that fateful day. Flags should be at the peaks and flying by noon-time until at least 2:00 pm. This is a LEAVE NO TRACE event. This is our 11th year and we do have a streak of covering all 48 peaks going back to 2004. Let's keep it going.
Signups for the event will be on Monday, AUGUST 6th at 6:00pm this year. Peaks go very very quickly so please have a second peak in mind and or be willing to share some of the more popular peaks. We are requesting this year one of two things. We would prefer a picture of the hiking party and the flag at your peak to be posted to the website promptly after the event. If not that, then we would appreciate an e-mail of confirmation that the flag did indeed make it.
There is alternate access for non-hikers of the event on Cannon, Washington and Wildcat D. Please send me an e-mail or private message should you like one of these particular peaks.
