Presidential Range Traverse
This classic hut-to-hut backpacking trip, timed for beautiful weather, will have you scheming about your next trip in the northeastern corner of the country. The three-day, 20-mile ridge climb includes summits of Mounts Madison, Adams, Jefferson, Washington, Monroe, Franklin, and Eisenhower – and it’s nearly all above treeline. This rugged trek is also an opportunity to spend two nights in the Appalachian Mountain Club’s historic hut system. A summer Presidential Range Traverse is also a spectacular way to see the wild White Mountain National Forest from above. Guided by Ragged Mountain Guides.
