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.
Joe is one of the Boston Chapter's most experienced and active trip leaders - his summit visits number in the quadruple digits. Included among the many outings he leads each year for the Chapter's Hiking/Backpacking Committee are the single-day Presidential Range traverse on the summer solstice, and the Map & Compass course in the fall.
