Late Fall Hike to Mt. Washington

Trip dates: Saturday, November 10, 2018 12:00 AM

Join us for a hike to Mount Washington, New England's highest peak. This late fall hike up the Ammonoosuc Ravine Trail, Crawford Path, Gulfside Trail and Jewell Trail will cover 10-11 miles with an elevation gain of 4,200 feet at a moderate pace. The trip may include summiting Mt. Monroe. Participants should have recent comparable hikes and be comfortable with extended above tree line exposure. We could experience a mild autumn day or encounter mid-winter conditions. We won't really know until the time approaches. Participants should be prepared and equipped for winter above tree line travel. May be combined with Leaders' Sunday trip to Mt. Jackson; contact Leader Joe C. about accommodations ($9/person/night) for Saturday night if you'd like to combine it with the Sunday hike to Mt. Jackson.
