Solo One Day Pemi Loop
A death march. An arduous journey. A brutal walk. No matter how you describe it, the 31.5 mile Pemigewasset Loop is a journey that most serious hikers in the Granite State dream of.

See the hike from Matt’s perspective in this crude and accelerated video of the successful fifteen hour journey.
