Lodge to Hut: Presidential Traverse
07/09/2018 - 07/13/2018

Join us on this hut-to-hut adventure as we explore the adaptations of plants and animals living in such a challenging yet stunning environment. Beginning with dinner and a comfortable night's lodging at AMC's Highland Center; we gear up for our backcountry adventure. We embark on our hike up the Airline Trail to Madison Spring Hut. The next day we traverse the rocky northern Presidential Range to Lakes of the Clouds Hut giving us ample opportunity to explore the ridge in full summer glory. From Lakes of the Clouds Hut, we continue along the southern Presidential Range to Mizpah Spring Hut. We end our hike by descending the historic Crawford Path to the Highland Center, where hot showers and clean clothes await. This trip involves moderate-to-challenging terrain including steep rocky ascents, uneven footing and exposed terrain above treeline. Weather can change quickly and become quite cold and windy. Participants should be in excellent hiking shape, have proper hiking boots and clothing and be prepared for a summer alpine adventure! PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS: • Hiking in world renowned terrain, including summit attempts of Mt. Washington and other presidential peaks. SAMPLE ITINERARY: Day one: dinner and pre hike meeting at Highland Center Day two: After a hearty breakfast we drive to the Appalachia Trailhead and hike 3.8 miles up the Airline Trail to Madison Hut gaining 3500 feet in elevation. Day three: We continue from Madison Hut across the ridge to Lakes of the Clouds Hut. This is the toughest day of our traverse with 7.2 miles over rough rocky terrain. Day four: Our next destination is a 5.0 mile hike from Lakes of the Clouds Hut located on the shoulder of Mt Washington at 5200 feet to Mizpah Hut. Elevation loss over 5 miles is 2000 feet. Day five: hike the 2.7 miles from AMC's Mizpah Hut losing 1700 feet of elevation to the trailhead at the Highland Center for clean clothes and hot showers. *If time, weather and energy allow, there will be options to summit the higher peaks.
